    pro-life or pro-choice, is that we are talking about a woman that is having to make a very difficult decision for herself. If she continues with the pregnancy, there are issues that must be dealt with, or if she chooses to end the pregnancy there are different, but just as difficult issues to be dealt with.

    There are no easy answers when dealing with an unwanted pregnancy. What I find disgusting is when pro-lifers talk about the decision to have an abortion as if it were as inconsequential as a flip of a coin or  where no thought was put into it at all.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I consider myself to be pro-life. I am pro-life, because I want all children to be wanted and born into a nurturing environment. I am not naive enough to believe this is true of every child. I believe the best person to decide what is best, is the future mother. As a man, I willl never have to be faced with that kind of decision. Other than having an intellectual interest in the subject, at the end of the day, I don't have a dog in the fight. And yes, I am against the death penalty as well.
