    This is quite a heated topic as you can imagine.  I'll take the 
    liberty to define some of the terms since there is a lot of different 
    meanings being used - I'll take the obvious ones.  Pro-life is the 
    belief that life (especially human) is always valuable and should be
    supported and defended.  It is not however anti-choice, just like 
    pro-choice is not anti-life.  Pro-choice is the belief that people 
    should be able to make life choices by themselves, and in particular 
    whether they choose to have an abortion performed on their unborn 
    child. 

    Given the definitions above most who've got the straight-edge are 
    pro-life and pro-choice.  That is, they will take responsibility for
    their actions (which is the reason for being straight) and will not 
    take the easy option of aborting an unexpected child.  However, they 
    will not presume to force the same ethic on others. 

    Those who are hardline will also be anti-choice.

    "Anti-abortion figures into sxe about as much as veganism does.  It 
    is an extension of the making the personal life political.  The most 
    effective place to make a change is your own body and the actions you 
    take every day."
