No offense, Rob but the problem they were refering too as I've read it is people who take up a stance and are completely unwilling to bend, unwilling to even to listen or consider the possibility that other people might have something important to bring to the discussion.
You make up your mind and then throw up a virtual finger to anyone who even might think about coming into the topic to discuss the facts of the issue on both sides. You're pro-choice? You're all up for people making informed choices and descions about their own lives with one hand and yet with the other you're throwing up a big 'F*** You' to anyone who might have something to bring to the discussion.
I, myself, am a proponent of choice and individual responsibility, yet at the same time I fall onto the side of pro-life because I believe in the sanctity of life. Regardless of whether or not that fetus can make a choice for itself from the time of conception on, or whether or not it can be defined as nothing more than a parasite is not the issue for me, personally.
For me, the fact of the matter of is that I know that that fetus is not a parasite and from the time of conception I believe that that fetus has the same rights to its burgeoning life that any of the rest of do. If the mothers life is endagered, if the fetus will be born stillborn, then I believe that measures can be taken to save the mothers life. However, if that is not the case then I believe that the life of that fetus has the same value as the life of the mother. Yes it might be the woman's body and in any other matter it should be solely and completely her choice, but not, again in my opinion, when there is another life to be considered.
That being said do I choose to shout profanity at people who are pro-choice? No. And I never will. Neither will I do everything short of calling morons and 'f**king idiots' because they believe what they believe. You want to be pro-choice? Then how about sitting down, shutting up, and listening to people who have made choices on the issue and then debating it in a civil manner, rather than saying you don't want to hear anything anyone else might have to say on the issue.
