While I am passionate about my pro-choice belief...I do not doubt a pro-life person is just as passionate about their beliefs. But I don't feel that the CZ Abortion Debate forum is an avenue that we should use to try to CHANGE somebody's beliefs. Nor do I think it is a forum to judge or ridicule somebody for having a diferent belief than ours...and that goes for BOTH SIDES. a debate can simply be an attempt to try to convince somebody to understand a different perspective or to discuss some of the other issues that stem from this topic such as policy, law, etc. I applaud #59245 for reposting the above message.
