An ideal followed and believed by those who are intelligent and open minded enough to realize that, although abortion is not glamorous or favored by all, it is something that will happen whether it is legal or not.
In the times before legalized abortions, tons of women died trying to abort their children themselves or by going to unclean and unprofessional doctors to do the job.
Whether abortion is legal or not, women will still try to get rid of their babies if they wish to abort.
Now, if you really are "pro-life", then what about all of those mothers that bled to death or died by infection caused by trying to abort their unwanted children on their own? What about all of the women that it would happen to if abortion were to be illegalized again? Those lifes are just as important, are they not? Where's the "pro-life" there?
Many "pro-lifers" accuse "pro-choicers" of actually being anti-life or pro-abortion. Never in my life have I ever met a person who claimed to be pro-choice, but in reality was pro-abortion. No one thinks "Hrm, I think aborting unwanted children is a good idea."
Some just realize that it will happen, their are instances where it makes sense, and whether it does make sense or not, a woman should have the right to chose what she wants to do.
Pro-lifer: "Abortions should be illegal because I'm too stubborn, pig headed, and caught up in my own religious agenda to think logically about it and make a realistic decision on the subject."
Pro-choicer: "Women should have the right to chose whether they carry a baby to term, because it is her body, and no one else should be allowed to tell someone how to run your body and make your own choices."
