Those who claim to be pro choice are often against the choice to own an assault weapon, the type light bulb to use, the choice to put their social security retirement funds in a private account, coercion to purchase healthcare, oppose voucher for school choice, limiting soft drink cup size choices, to join a union or pay union dues, and of course favor raising taxes to fund social programs that limit funds available for individuals to choose which charity they would prefer to fund.

Nobody promotes murder or abortion. They promote a woman's choice to decide what happens to herself. That truth doesn't change no matter how often you lie about it. Nor is it logically difficult (for most of us).
TSAD - I agree completely, you're right I've never heard the Pro-choice crowd discuss or promote anything but abortion.
I think it might seem that way because debate usually centers around abortion. I'm pro-choice, not pro-abortion. I support whatever choice a woman makes, as she knows herself best. I would rather see a baby adopted than aborted but it's HER choice.
That's good but I don't believe planned parenthood as a whole, shares your views.
Truth! There are more ways than TWO to look at an issue. Lots of factors must be considered before MANDATING personal choices. And when it comes to our own personal bodies, it's up to US to choose the right way to go, not government.
I agree, political discussions must be civil. Unfortunately, political correctness, has removed from public discussion many of the most important issues.
I think you can be pro life but also for the death penalty if you believe it prevents future innocent lives from being taken. Pro life is an accurate label to those who seek to protect the unborn and mothers from harm or death.
So the logic of being "pro choice" is ok as long as it is to prevent future abuse or neglect by that logic right?
No, I'm distinguishing between the rights of the innocent vs the guilty. and pro choice, doesn't apply to the child, what it really means is a license to take an innocent life.
The left seems to only favor freedoms that they see advancing their agenda, they need a dependent population to maintain there power base, so its in their interest to hasten the demise of the family unit through unrestricted abortions.
