American Thinker: Philosophy: Daniel Payne: "Pro-Choice Only Goes so Far": Defining Pro-Choice in America

Articles: 'Pro-Choice' Only Goes so Far

Its a little hard to read an article about Pro-Choice from the American Thinker which is basically represents Neoconservative and religious-right thinking. And has argued in the past that personal-freedom and freedom of choice are dangerous because it allows for people to make bad decisions. Which has been their argument in the past but Daniel Payne makes a good case here when he says that Progressives have a. Tendency to argue for Pro-Choice and just leave it when it comes to abortion. But things like the War on Drugs or prohibition which are Progressive ideas seem to have nothing to do. With Pro-Choice and personal-freedom but protecting society as a whole even from the people themselves which is true. As a Liberal I'm Pro-Choice but just not when to comes to reproductive-rights but across the board. As long as someone's choices aren't hurting innocent people. I draw the line when it involves how people interact with each other and that both sides need to consent before someone can. Do something to the other.

If you want to know my full position when it comes to abortion. I'm 98-99% Pro-Choice and draw the line when it comes to public-financing of abortions except in the areas of rape, incest, life or health of. The mother that women who've voluntarily decided to get pregnant by agreeing to have sex with a man the father of the baby. Have a right to end that abortion but that since they decided to get pregnant, they are now responsible for seeing the fetus to birth or not. And should have to take care of it on their own. That they have a right to abortion but not the right to force others to pay for it unless they were forced to get. Pregnant and that's where I draw the line on abortion but personal-choice in general. As far as I'm concern all free adults in America have the right to make their own choices in life as long as they aren't. Hurting others with their decision making and I apply that to all issues as a Liberal, not a Progressive. Progressives who tend to believe in prohibiting things by law that aren't healthy for us.

Not to pat myself on the back but you could use the gun-rights debate or the War on Drugs when it comes to personal-choice in America. Towards Progressives or Social-Democrats lets call them who tend to believe that government has a role to protect people even from themselves. But I'm a real Liberal someone who truly believes in personal-freedom and has a healthy skepticism about. Governmental power unlike Progressives and Neoconservatives and that argument simply won't fly with me.
