    The title may seem a bit cliche, but still, a legitimate question nonetheless. And just for those who will read only the first sentence of this post:

    The only time I will advocate for an abortion is when the mother's life is in immediate danger, or if she is raped, and/or a victim of incest. That's it. At no other time should a child be aborted prior to 21 weeks gestation.

    Now, random men and women in the video below were asked whether they were pro choice or pro life. As you can see, many of them said they were pro choice. After being shown a video of what happens during an actual abortion procedure however, they soon changed their minds, or were at least planning to reconsider their stances on the subject.



    Being "pro-choice" isn't just some arbitrary title one can simply slap across their chest so they aren't seen as misogynists, it's a sign of someone ill educated about the process detailing how an actual unborn child is torn apart piece by piece inside the womb. As seen in the proceeding video:



    The question(s):

    1) Are you pro-choice, or pro-life? Why?
    2) If after watching the second video you changed from pro-choice to pro-life, what changed your mind?
    3) If you are pro-choice even after watching the video, why?

    The rules:

    No name calling and/or religious slurs.
    No talking points. I want sound arguments to be made on both ends.
    No citing the Bible. On any side.

    GO!

    Why? Do you think God wants them to be aborted? Even though he created them?

    I don't know. Perhaps you should press your hands together and ask him yourself.

    But I'll kindly cite the rules again:

    "No citing the Bible. On any side."

    Your post will be ignored. Feel free to try again.

    So in this thread, people aren't allowed to say they have religious objections to abortion? It's going to be a short thread.

    I'm pro-choice, that does not mean I would choose abortion for myself, but I have no right to make that choice for any other woman.

    2) If after watching the second video you changed from pro-choice to pro-life, what changed your mind?
    I didn't change.

    3) If you are pro-choice even after watching the video, why?
    Because, for me - the video is manipulating emotions. I understand the biology and the science. But I am an absolute advocate for the right of each woman to determine it for herself.

    Nope. I'm uninterested in it. I hear and make enough religious arguments against abortion to last me a lifetime. I want people to dig deep into their conscience to make their case. In this instance, the Bible is nothing more than the easy way out.

    Feel free to leave if you wish.

    I plan to, when you stop trying to draw the thread off topic.

    I suspect your objections are religious in nature. That's why I asked those questions. For clarification. And if you could clarify about the 21 weeks too. It seems like an arbitrary number.
