pedestrian-palamite asked: I suggest that you not conflate "pro-life" with "abstinence-only." They are not the same idea, and not all "pro-lifers" advocate "abstinence-only." Also, I take exception to your use of the term "anti-choice" to describe those who think that abortion of the human fetus is an unacceptable use of free will. It's not fair to the many people...
