    •  I don't like the questions in the poll (4+ / 0-)

      My result showed that I was a bleeding heart also.  However, I thought that some of the questions were not explained and were inadequate to cover the topic.  

      Take for example the issue of abortion.  According to the Guttmacher Institute the death rate for abortions is 0.6 per 100,000 but the death rate for women who go through childbirth is around 15 per 100,000.  Since the death rate for women is much higher for childbirth does it make you pro life if you are for legal abortions?  

      Also, the vast majority of abortions are done in the first trimester.  In fact most early abortions only require taking a couple of pills.  Fewer than 2% of abortions are done after 20 weeks but those aren't really abortions but medical emergencies where something has gone terribly wrong during a wanted pregnancy.  However, the poll doesn't take that into account.

    •  same here; the scale doesn't go anywhere near (0+ / 0-)

      far enough left for my DH to bother taking the poll though, 8-)

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...
