Ok, so could you answer both these questions:
Are you pro life or pro choice?
Do you believe the foetus counts as a living being?

I don’t identify in either camp. I do think a fetus is a living thing, but does that mean it’s entitled to human rights? Not necessarily.

For me its a question of when does a baby become a baby not wether its in a womb or not.

Ive taken the opinion that once a baby has cognition it should be considered entitled to human rights (this is at about 23 weeks).

I do still think in general abortion is a very very poor solution and people should endeavor to find a better option but I don’t think anyone takes such a decision lightly.

Politically pro-choice. Personally, I lean towards thinking that killing humans is always unacceptable.

Foetuses are objectively living beings. No question about it.

Also, those born after the year 2000, if you don't mind, could you say so.

Pro-choice for sure I don't understand why people think they have any right to stop a woman from doing what she wants with her own body.
And no I don't think they are living beings

Pro choice 100%
Pro life people seem more like pro-baby to me. They seem to forget about the mother, who actually has a sustainable life.
I do think, however, that abortion should only be done if necessary: rape, health issues, detrimental to mothers/family's health (mental or physical).

Pro-choice 100% it's a woman's right to decide whether she wants to have a baby or not not a bunch of men in the government.

Fun fact: men and women have very similar views on abortion and pretending that this is a men vs women issue is blatant propaganda.

except that in each individual case, it only matters what that one woman thinks and wants

In the UK at the moment, that is true for the first 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Pro-choice, but to a certain extent. I think abortions should be legal for pregnancies that are up to 6 weeks. I've always found it odd how some women would have an abortion when they're 8 months pregnant. I feel as though at that point in the pregnancy, it's no longer an abortion. It's just going through labour and then killing a baby. Besides, is it really that difficult to wait for another month and just give the baby up for adoption? Of course, all the points I have made are only towards women who get an abortion by choice. I'm not referring to women who have to have an abortion due to medical reasons such as eclampsia

this is very true; I've just been researching, because people have been telling me that its mainly men who are pro life, but turns out its equal.

well, i guess in a way its also the man's child, but i suppose the woman feels the pain...
