Regarding the "Pro-Life" / "Pro-Choice" issue I don't usually comment on such being 59 and without children myself through exercising my own responsibility, but there is a POLITICAL solution.
I'm going to start out by saying this is a POLITICAL solution and by all means NOT a MORAL or RELIGIOUS one. The purpose is to put a legal end to the endless debate on the subject of pro-life vs pro-choice and the energies and funds it wastes, freeing them to be devoted to issues that can more readily be solved like jobs, the economy and removing the short-circut in Social Secuity and Medicare (
Enact a "Sovereignty of the Womb" rulng that makes a woman of adult age the absolute sovereign of her womb, declaring that the laws of our nation do not apply to any unborn until a live birth occurs without the sovereign's consent.
Note that with this in effect what then happens inside the womb amounts to what happens in another country. Whether right or wrong in any other sense, it is left to the decision of the sovereign of that country, in this case the mother, as to handle matters inside that country. Only if live birth occurs, effectively a border crossing, would national laws apply.
Like I said, no moral or religious values apply here nor are they meant to, any more than they would apply to another nation. This is purely a political solution but a "Solomonistic" one (like cutting the child in half) that maybe we should enact.

Now the most ideal way to avoid the abortion issue is to avoid unwanted pregnancies to begin with, and this is how I explain it
Every time a man and a woman decide to get together it is a threesome:
1) There is what the man wants,
2) there is what the woman wants, and then
3) there is what the candidate unborn third party wants.
No one considers the third party's view, which I see as follows:
If you're going to bring me into the world, raise me on love as kind caring parents and give me a decent start in life then count me in. Otherwise take the pill, wear the rubber and Leave Me Out! Do not be irresponsible by bringing me into a life where I will not be loved, cared for or guided!
