  •  Pro life people were forced by their life (0+ / 0-)

    circumstance to have children whether they wanted to or not, they want to share the pain.  No other reason to feel the way they do about someone else's choices, they certainly don't want to pay taxes high enough to support their position that life is sacred.

    •  No, they make the same choices (0+ / 0-)

      pro-choice women make. It's just that they believe that others who chose abortion are irresponsible having abortions for convenience while they are good people who are making a wise choice. Surely you've read the essay "The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion." If not you should.

      They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance. Terry Pratchett

      •  The question is why is my medical procedure (0+ / 0-)

        any of their concern....it is no different than if my doctor and I think it is appropriate to have my tonsils removed, none their concern(or Congresses for that matter).  This is about something personal.  Not about abortion but just about the same sentiment, someone I know from Oklahoma was railing about the new health care bill providing health care for people and her reasoning was that she had to do without when she was younger, why shouldn't they.  A logic born out of pure meanness developed out of difficult circumstances.
