    Pro-Choice and Pro-Life are both wrong

    You don't have choice when you feel like the only choice is to abort. You don't save babies by eliminating choice from all circumstances and making it a black or white issue.

    Unfortunately, neither party seems willing to use their vast financial resources to actually giving women real choice.

    Stupid religious bastards vs stupid political bastards.

    Meanwhile babies are dying and women are suffering.

    Why would you feel to abort is the only choice?

    Many women abort because if they don't they can't provide for their child/children/self.

    To be clearer: They believe that if they have the child their life is "over".

    Over= They will never be able to survive in anything other than poverty and government support.

    You didn't miss anything. Apparently one can not feel that all abortions were not something the woman wanted without being an enemy of women's rights.

    I think that families can exert far more pressure than any political/religious group.

    I don't think it as black and white as that - it always strikes me as a convenient way to rationalise things and convince people it is a purely selfish decision on the part of the woman. I note also that the first thing many right wing administrations do is cut any programmes that are intended to help single parents get in to the work place or benefits aimed at working mums. There's always seems to be that old moral divide between deserving and undeserving poor and single parents by the very fact of having a child out of wedlock have proven themselves unworthy. At least nowadays they can get to keep the child. It's not that long ago girls could be institutionalised for being feeble minded if they had a child out of wedlock. Don't know about the states or canada but it was still happening in the 60's here.

    and some religious families will never let the mother or child forget how they have sinned. Family life is good but it can also be pretty hellish if you are a member of the wrong family.
