    This is a sincere poll. I would appreciate honest answers. If you're willing, I would also appreciate your reasons. I will not criticize your choice. I would just honestly like to know where USMB posters stand on this issue.

    NOTE: I know there are many possible variables, but this poll assumes "typical" circumstances. In other words, this is a superficial poll that assumes "normal/average" circumstances - meaning no rape, incest, health, deformity, financial, or other extenuating issues.

    First priority in what circumstance?

    Equal priority can be done pretty well.

    Life begins at conception. If it begins it was God's will...and so the fertilized egg has first priority. If woman does not want the child...put it up for adoption.

    Depends. If for medical reasons of course the woman. Otherwise, killing for killing sake isn't exactly a good thing.

    That would be idiotic politics as we need birth control.

    Most of what we call "birth control" prevents conception. Examples are barriers (condoms, diaphragms), anti-ovulation, (the pill), and ye olde time methods such as the rhythm method, "pull out and pray" and "no, use the other hole"

    What does politics have to do with anything?

    We have plenty of birth control around. All anyone has to do is use it if they choose to.

    What they don't have the right to do is force others to pay for their birth control.

    BTW you are being completely dishonest by pretending we aren't talking about a child.
