Abortion : anti-choice, quasi-choice and pro-choice
We had a show about abortion recently on the Hellbound Alleee Show, and Aaron has a discussion going on about abortion on his blog Kill the Antithesis. This prompts me to notice how many people are not PRO-choice but QUASI-choice - "sure, the woman can choose, up to a certain arbitrary date I have decided because...". Usually consciousness. And yet consciousness is NOT a criteria for protection in any other area (certainly not for the death penalty, animal slaughtering, hunting or fishing, or anything of that nature). So why should we make an exception for abortion ?
I'm not quasi-choice advocate - I think a woman should be free to abort at any time up to the actual birth of the person. Am I the only real pro-choice person out there ?
