[quote]Life is hard, sometimes you have to make some choice, not very nice. That's why i a m prochoice, but i prefer in the deep of my heart to be prolife (samething for the war).<hr></blockquote>
There are no pro-choice people who think abortions are awesome and fun. There are no pro-death penalty folks who get off on killing. Well, there are a few but they are the vast minority and are insignificant. Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling you something.
No need to feel guilty being pro-choice.

I can't speak for all othe pro-choice folks, but I make it a point to illustrate that I don't think this way. Abortion is killing a baby. I'm pro-choice.
[quote]Rarely if ever does any real good come from an abortion.<hr></blockquote>
Rarely if evern does any real good come from drinking. Or extra-marital sex. Should these things be illegal?
[quote]I am pro-choice (check my first post in this thread).<hr></blockquote>
Animals taste good and pets are cool. They're just animals.
[quote]Oh yeah, I hate it when that happens. If a wanna go kill or rape someone, what right does someone else have to tell me that I can't do it? It's *my* life, and I'm gonna live it the way *I* want to.<hr></blockquote>
Those two are acts on a conscious being that is aware of its existence and feels pain. Abortion is not.
[quote]But that doesn't make a promiscuous girl more a "victim" or somehow less responsible.<hr></blockquote>
Yes but the guy is not responsible. He can run off never to be found again, he's out scot-free. She is stuck with the pregnancy. This happens all the time. He is morally responsible in fairy-land but in the real world he has no responsibility. She is a victim in a sense, not a pure victim but screwed over by sexism nonetheless.

I'll disagree. If you participate in a procreative act with someone you don't wish to procreate with in a manner that will lead to procreation you are a scumbag. But that's neither here nor there.
[quote]And sad as it may be there *are* girls out there who are too young to be having sex, but sleep around a lot anyway (with boys their age, older men, whoever they feel like)...to say those girls are somehow victims and bear no responsibility for their pregnancy / child is ludicrous.<hr></blockquote>
15 year old girls don't walk around thinking, "I'm going to be a whore today." They are manipulated by older men 99 times out of 100. No one is saying they bear no responsibility.
