My sister (who is not a vegan) and I were having a discussion the other day and she said, "Do you know what I hate most about vegans? They are so high and mighty about saving animals but they are ALL pro-choice, which is so hypocritical." I told her I didn't think that was true. (Actually I know that for a fact, because I am pro-life.) But I want to find out in the lfrv community, so I am starting a poll.
IF YOU WANT TO DEBATE THIS, PLEASE START ANOTHER THREAD! I just want a judgement free zone, for people to post either PRO-LIFE, PRO-CHOICE, or UNDECIDED so I can get a count going. I know its not an accurate polling process but I am just curious since there are so many vegans on this site.
I am aware that many people on this site may be pro-life because they are more into natural living than other vegans who may just do it for animals and don't care as much about their health, but still, I want to get an idea.
If you don't feel comfortable posting your answer, then don't worry about it!
Again, I don't want to start a debate so please keep this post strictly informational, and we can debate it on some other thread!
Please post either
and if you feel like sharing your GENDER that would be great!
* One more note (added later) I am not talking necessarily talking about legislation, as many people don't think the government should be involved in those decisions, so maybe I chose the wrong words... I mean from the moral standpoint of whether you believe it is right or wrong.
Thanks a lot!!

Should parents have a right to kill their children?
However you approach it, I don't believe that state legislation is the right way to address the issue. I've seen plenty ill come out of the state taking responsibility from parents, and little good.
Good question though. I do believe that parents should, for example, have the right to give birth whichever way they wish, wherever they wish, and remain free from legal persecution if the baby and/or mother happens to die. If parents kill an already born child, should they be prosecuted? Yes, though I still don't like the way it's handled by a large, centralised government.
What's the difference, then, between a fetus and an already born child, since I'm not applying the same jurisdiction on both? ... good question.
Pro Life Female :)
guess you'll probably never find out the answer
Pro-choice, pregnant female
(2 cents - I feel it is just as important to be pro-woman's life as it is to be pro-embryo, if not more so)
Actually you can use me for an example:
I have been pregnant 3 times:
#1 - Cornual pregnancy - I would have died without removing the embryo.
#2 - Viable pregnancy, but just a few weeks after pregnancy #1 and surgery, and I likely would have ruptured my uterus before coming to term (doctor's words). Elected a D&C, and would NEVER, EVER, wish that trauma on anyone, but would ALWAYS respect my decision to end it.
#3 - 15 weeks along. I have no money, no real family, no car, no assets, no job, and may or may not stay with the father. I have some close friends who support me, but not much else. I'm happy about my pregnancy and my choice to keep it. But what would you, as politicians, want in my case?
Thanks to all who voted. I am sifting through it. Its harder than I thought because people can't seem to resist the debate. Of course, I will keep this thread open longer. Again for future commenters, please limit your response to pro-life, pro-choice, undecided, and your gender. If you feel a BRIEF explanation is necessary, I understand...
With Rape victims as an exception
PLEASE DEBATE ON ANOTHER PAGE!!!!
pro-choice with a cut off period.
Pro Choice, female.
