    Why do some pro-lifers INCESSANTLY PUSH their particular beliefs on those who are pro-choice

    regarding abortion to the point of cyberbullying, even trolling the latter, trying to make them  believing the way these pro-lifers do?  Why do these pro-lifers insist that they are RIGHT in their premise while others are......WRONG?

    A lot of people who profess to be pro-life are actually only interested in forcing everyone to live by their narrow beliefs. I see a lot of mentions of god and the bible when they post here, but not much mention of people and the realities of life.

    I think part of the problem is that they believe there's a right way---their way---and a wrong way to go through life. It's a very black and white view of the world. Right=god, bible. Wrong=everything else. The reality of life is that it is many shades of grey, and that many people don't believe in that particular god, or that particular book.

    Many of us believe that each person should find their own path, according to their own conscience, and that what's right for one of us, may not be right for all of us.While I may choose not to have an abortion, I would not force that choice onto another woman, because I don't know her life, her circumstances, her mind, or her heart.

    So, I think the pro-lifers (or really, pro-birth, because they don't actually care about the whole life of the babies who are born, just that they are born, regardless of cost) believe there is only one way to live your life, and be a good person, while the reality is that there are many ways to do that, and it's not up to one narrow-minded bunch of bible-thumpers to define how the whole world lives. The only wrong is forcing your beliefs on others, and the only right is allowing room in your thoughts for another point of view, another belief system, and maybe a few more books.

      No.  Pro-lifers (at least me) actually care about the poor souls who are being destroyed before they actually have a chance in life.

      Lolita - why can't you care about the soul of the mother instead? SHE is the one making the choice to kill an unborn baby. According to you, her soul will be damned - not the soul of the fetus. Unborn souls get recycled or go to heaven automatically.

      Actually, they only care about those "poor souls" until the moment of their birth. After that, they don't seem to care whether that soul is fed, has health care, is educated, or grows up at all. They're not pro-life. They're pro-birth.

      Don't presume to tell me what I care about.  Of course I care about the mother's soul.  However, she made a decision and that is between her and God.  I do pray she regrets and repents.

      Unless there is a comprehensive plan from pro-birthers on how, once these unwanted children are brought into the world, they will be fed, clothed, housed, cared for, provided health care, educated, and how it will be paid for, I stand by my statement

    This is a social issue, and social issues cannot be controlled by the government. Roe v Wade didn't settle the underlying issue, nor did it even give judicial notice as to when life forms.

    Neither side is wrong, but neither side is right as this is not a black and white issue. It is a shade of gray, and there is no agreement on which shade of gray will satisfy both sides.

    They see it as preventing murder, and thus more appropriate to push than politeness would seem to allow.

    This is at least less offensive a reason than social justice warriors screaming in your face over your word choice, as if threatening you about the words you use to describe the poor or disabled or political dissidents actually HELPS those people compared to building wheelchair ramps or giving them jobs or legal aid to those in prison.

    Abortion is a polarizing issue. Both sides of the aisle are entrenched in their ideology and neither wish to cede ground.

    As a man, I feel my views on abortion carry little weight/credibility because this really is a woman's right and a decision I'm sure many women struggle with. I find it troubling watching men carrying signs, marching, yelling and trying to impose their will on the rights of women.

    Is it pro-life when zealots kill abortion doctors? Is it pro-life when an unwanted child is born and subsequently, the mother and baby are scorned for living in poverty? Is it pro-life to deny a child, impregnated due to rape or incest, the option of having an abortion? Is it pro-life to force a pregnant woman to carry a baby when the mother's life is at risk?

    Much to the chagrin of many, this country is not an exclusively Christian country. Separation of church and state are cornerstones of this government. Our nation is a potpourri of various religions and beliefs and each one needs to be respected. A holier than thou attitude divides, rather than conquers. The pulpit should not be a catalyst for enacting laws.

    As a father to three daughters and a grandfather to an adult granddaughter, I do not feel it is up to me to invoke my will over the right to choose. It is a woman's right to make that gut wrenching decision and certainly not one man should be enforcing. .
