Another poll I can't respond to - I'm conservative, pro-choice and pro-life. These things are not mutually exclusive.
Which do you lean more? or just don't answer. Debate and don't parktake

Nothing there particularly fits me either.

Liberals call me a conservative, conservatives call me a liberal. I'm not a centrist, I have very clear positions on each side of the spectrum.

Pro choice 100%. Which is NOT pro-abortion. Each woman has to make the choice that is correct for her.

I don't lean any particular way in the abortion debate - I'm pro-choice in all matters involving an individual and the path they wish to take in their own personal lives. I'm pro-life in that I believe unless a pregnancy affects the physical or mental health of the woman or her child, life is the best option. And I abhor the choice of what I call "lifestyle" abortions - those who choose abortion because a child will hamper their current lifestyle or circumstances.

You sir are a very conflicted man. You cant be pro-choice and pro-life. I love the terms progressives make up like pro choice and marriage equality :lol:

not sure how he feels, just saying he can call himself what ever he likes

im pro-choice until 21 weeks (viablity & mid 2nd trimester) then im pro-life, thats my view and IMO i think thats the most equal when considering two lives

Fair enough, i'd go between 24 weeks and 27 weeks dependant on the foetus. If human features are recognisable at 24 weeks - Pro Life. If human features aren't discernible at 27 weeks, to bad time is up.

nothing wrong with that, to each his own, interesting though you take it fetus by fetus and use physical appearance. Thats a new one for me.past 24 is definitely too late IMO but thats all it is.

like i have always said i have no problem with people disagreeing on the abortion debate but when someone ignores facts, judges others, pushes opinion as facts or simply wants their views forced on others i just point it out. This seems to make some people really mad.

I don't think you can be both, since the definition of prolife is that you do not want abortion to be legal and prochoice means you want it legal.

you are free to think that but there is no real definition its made up

not to mention if that was the official definition how many people would be pissed they can call themselves pro-life because the majority allow exceptions, are you suggestion that all the people that call themselves pro lifers but allow exceptions are wrong or lying?

what about me, i want it legal but only partially

people can call themselves what they like

I really don't like the poll because it does not clearly define the ideologies and because I think most people have individual mixes of ideologies, which makes them far superior to ideologies and worth interacting with. I said "liberal and pro-choice," but for me "liberal" necessarily involves a strong component of social libertarianism. Also, why was "progressivism" absent?

Are you like a classical liberal?? Sorry, not following the "social libertarianism" part.
