Don't start with me hugo!


I just got a phonecall, asking "my opinions." It was one of those "Press 1 for this, press2 for that."

Most of the questions would narrow down... for example, "Are you republican? Press 1 for yes press 2 for no." "Are you democrat? Press 1 for yes, 2 for no, so on and so forth.

One question... "Do you consider yourself to be pro-life?" I pressed 2. And that's as far as it went.

Yes, I see their assumption that if you're not "prolife" you're "prochoice" but there are some people out there who are actually proabortion. Few and far between, but they do exist.

I don't like the idea that I'm now lumped in with them. That you're either prolife, or you're proabortion. I'm prochoice meaning that I believe everyone has the right to decide what's best for them. While at this point in my life, the odds of my getting pregnant are very slim, if I were to get pregnant, I'd have the baby. However, there were many points in my life where I can almost garentee I would have had an abortion, so who am I to tell anyone what would be best for them?
