They reconcile it by answering the poll. Obviously there are people who consider themselves pro-life yet still don't think the gov't should make such a decision for others.
The discrepancy isn't reconciled simply by virtue of them answering the poll.
If I conduct a poll and 90% of respondents say that in the context of the abortion issue they consider themselves pro choice...and then 90% of the same respondents say they believe abortion should be illegal under all circumstances, the fact that they responded to the poll does not explain the obvious and blatant contradiction.

You're funny. Are you here every day ?
That you want to pretend there is a discrepancy where there is none, is irrelevant.
I'm not pretending that 66% of the people support RvW but only 50% said they were pro choice. That's reality.

People have the right to consider themselves anything they want.
I also have the right to say that based on their answers 16% either don't know what pro choice means...or don't don't know what RvW did/said.

Who's pretending? Not I. The polling numbers are what they are.

There is no discrepancy for the people who answered the poll. No one gives a shit if you want to pretend there is. Again, it's not up to you to say who can consider themselves what. You are the only one pretending, pretending that it's for you to say.

I've spoken with people who feel this way. They understand both. They are pro-life, they think abortion is morally wrong, they would never have one themselves, yet they don't think the gov't has the right to make it illegal early term. There is no contradiction just because YOU want an argument with me.

I'm not here every day, but I'd be willing to bet YOU are here just as much as I am. The only difference is that I only post under ONE screen name.

If you believe abortion is morally wrong, would never have one yourself, but believe it should remain a legal choice for others, you are pro choice. No two ways about it.
At best minimum of 16 percent of those polled don't know what pro choice means or what RvW did. Either way poll numbers are skewed and like you, can't be trusted.

I was here before you were, though not nearly as often. I was hoping you were here every day. If you were I'd have made a point to be here for the laughs.

You are not the arbiter of what PLor PC means, moron. It`s a philosophical stance and thus open to interpretation.

Do you ever understand what the word pro-choice means in regards to the abortion issue? It means that you are in favor of a woman having total control over her pregnancy. Most people who cluelessly consider themselves "pro-choice", are in favor of restriction,thus contradicting themselves. They are pro-abortion only before viability actually. Same goes for those who make the ridiculous claim that although they wouldn't choose abortion(at that time anyway)they wouldn't want the choice taken away from others. It's pathetically cowardly at best.

"""Open to interpretation""

Come on really?

Say what you mean, mean what you say. You either support elective abortion or you don't. "Interpretations" are bullsh*t attempts to ease ones conscience. You either think that it's okay to kill or you don't. Period. Nobody cares if you personally choose it for yourself or not.

Makes me laugh at how hard proaborts are trying to justify their barbaric support for killing innocent lives. They somehow feel like humane, decent people when they draw the lines(at restrictions) as if they care.

Making excuses for ridiculous claims speaks volumes for your proabortion cowardly cause. It reeks with guilt and deceit.

Keep it up though, the true colors always shine through.

Of course it makes a difference. The point is that these people are not practicing which kinda debunks the intent on behalf of those who were attempting to prove something.

ZERO authentic, practicing Catholic, Chrisitians, Jews, Muslims support abortion as choice.

Another militant religionist guy who thinks women are nothing more than mindless baby factories "for God and church." YAWN. Do you really believe you're saying anything new here? I've read this kind of anti-choice, faith-based BULL more times than I care to remember.
Not every woman wants pregnancy or children, "genius." A woman who doesn't want pregnancy or children is just as feminine as the woman who does. She just doesn't have to live by your regressive beliefs and opinions to prove it.
I believe the person was talking about KILLING ones existing children. It is anti-woman,anti-life. It goes against the core of the naural instincts of a woman to care for and protect her flesh and blood.

Don't want a child, don't conceive one. If you did conceive one then you have no right to kill him/her because YOU don't want to mother them. No more or less then Susan Smith or the one who just gave birth in Victoria's secret and killed her unwanted child.

Hmmm....interestingly, your side agree with restrictions regarding THEIR pregnancies(when and why they can abort).

So wakey wakey and tell your fellow proaborts to Mind their own business.

Ahh I see the resident Skanky fool is once more telling every one she has the sole authority to decide who is and is not catholic, prolife, or prolife.

As usual the fail is on the usual epic scale of stupidity.

But then that is exactly why I am 1) Glad I am Wiccan. Cause you fools make christianity so bad.

2) Happy that you are your own worse enemies. the more you dolts make such grand sweeping pronouncements here and any where else. The more people realize what truly fools your side of the aisle can produce on a such a great scale.

Lastly 3) I am happy to say that your arguments and diatribes go no where in the real world.

Wow. What must it be like living in your black or white, either/or world with no shades of grey or blurred lines?

Did you know pro-life/anti-choice merely means being against the legalization of abortion? That's it. Further, being pro-choice/pro-abortion merely means being for the legalization of abortion.

History already shows us the negative impact when abortion was illegal for about 100 years in a lot of states.

So, based on this info, why don't you give three reasons to be against legal abortion that has nothing to do with your faith/belief, nothing to do with your dislike of the procedure, and everything to do with pregnant women facing unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies. What's in it for them? Ready? Go!

Sorry, but your absolutist approach means nothing. A person who considers themself PC or PL has their own interpretation of what that term involves. How is it cowardly to make decisions for oneself and allow others the same right?

You twits can`t deal with the fact that not everyone is fetus-focused.

Yes, because in the history of the world, religious adherents have never differed on this subject. You`re aware that the bibole says nothing about abortion, right? For centuries, in fact, abortion was unimportant because was considered to begin at the first breath, not in the womb.
