I don't like telling people where I stand on this, alth

I don’t like telling people where I stand on this, although I’m surprised anybody wonders. I suppose if I say I’m pro-choice, if I make that clear, it let’s the audience off the hook, then they can sort of relax. Okay, it’s alright he’s pro-choice then I can enjoy this.
Todd Solondz
I hate movies that tell people what to think. I’m proud that Democrats thought ‘Thank You For Smoking’ was their film and Republicans thought it was theirs. I’m proud that pro-choice people thought ‘Juno’ was their film and pro-life people thought it was theirs.
Jason Reitman
I don’t think there is a libertarian position on abortion. Maybe if you took a poll of libertarians, it might be that a majority would be pro-choice, but, the libertarian position is to protect the rights of individuals against the use of force and fraud.
Charles Murray
Can you be a progressive if you’re anti-immigrant but pro-choice? No!
Pramila Jayapal
I won’t use abortion as a litmus test with a pro-choice individual. Someone that is an activist on the abortion issue, I think, goes outside the pale, and I cannot support an activist on the abortion issue.
Ken Buck
I should have known better. Pro-life arguments are now based on scientific evidence and the pro-choice arguments are not. That is a cultural, historical fact.
Stanley Fish
Obviously, I have been a pro-choice candidate for my entire political career, and obviously there is controversy always surrounding this issue.
Claire McCaskill
We’re always going to argue about abortion. It’s a hard choice and it’s controversial, and that’s why I’m pro-choice, because I want people to make their own choices.
Hillary Clinton
I think the Republican Party should be a pro-life party. I am pro-life. I do not apologize for that. On the flip side of that coin, the Republican Party has been big enough to allow pro-choice advocates to be heard.
J. C. Watts
Being pro-choice was not just a movement to me; it was a lifestyle. I wholeheartedly embraced that lifestyle and loved being a part of it.
Abby Johnson
I wasn’t just pro-choice, I was pro-everything, until I started taking everything off the table and began looking at things and asking if this view was consistent with that view.
Glenn Beck
Some pro-life advocates focus almost exclusively on the rights and suffering of the unborn baby, while some pro-choice advocates focus equally exclusively on the rights and suffering of pregnant women. This is a distortion of the moral choice that confronts us as a society.
Blase J. Cupich
You can’t wake up one day and say ‘I’m for gay marriage,’ and wake up the next day and say ‘I’m against it.’ Wake up one day and say, ‘I’m pro-choice,’ and the next day wake up and say, ‘I’m pro-life.’ There’s no credibility there.
Roger Stone

Charlie Baker
Militant feminists are pro-choice because it’s their ultimate avenue of power over men. And believe me, to them it is a question of power. It is their attempt to impose their will on the rest of society, particularly on men.
Rush Limbaugh
I’ll be on the street and go up to people – ‘Have you read a comic book before? Well, here’s one.’ You’ve got your pro-life people, your pro-choice people, your feminists. I’m a comicbooks activist.
Rob Liefeld
Earlier feminists were almost universally pro-choice and have dominated political debate until now. Having access to abortion was viewed as the only way women could have full equality with men, who, until recently, couldn’t get pregnant.
Kathleen Parker
I am pro-choice, but I don’t consider that inconsistent at all with pro-life – there’s no way that having an abortion, ever, is an easy decision, and it more often errs on the side of absolutely wrenching, not to mention physically debilitating.
Rachel Sklar
All I’m asking for is the law that’s been on the books for the last 33 years, no public funding for abortion. We are both saying the same thing, pro-life, pro-choice. Let’s find the language that works for both of us so we can pass health care.
Bart Stupak
My pro-choice activism keeps me busy.
Margot Kidder
I’m pro-choice and those things, but I typically vote Republican.
James Denton
I implore my Democratic colleagues to disregard the extreme voices of the abortion industry and radical pro-choice activists in favor of the loud, clear voice of the American people: Late-term abortion is a step too far, and post-birth abortion is horrifying.
Mike Braun
Your moral stance depends on what you think is being aborted. If you don’t believe it to be a person but part of a woman’s body, of course you will be pro-choice. I would be virulently pro-choice if I didn’t believe it to be a person.
Louise Mensch
You’ve got a movie where the pro-choice family gives their daughter no choice. The pro-life family murders. What seems to be the good mother, the kind of hippie painter, sweet and cute mother has no love for her daughter really.

Christine Pelosi
In 2012, the Liberal Party affirmed overwhelmingly at the policy convention that we are a pro-choice party. It means that we are a party that defends women’s rights, and therefore, it would be inconsistent for any Liberal MP to be able to vote to take away women’s rights.
Justin Trudeau
EMILY’s List members are deeply committed to electing pro-choice Democratic women whom we trust to stand up for our rights, treat us honestly, and make us proud. Our candidates fight for us every day. Blanche Lincoln failed to hold up her end of the bargain.
Ellen Malcolm
Electing pro-choice Republican women can help foster a discussion that reflects the full spectrum of views and can lead to a more balanced and responsible public dialogue.
Linda Lingle
This pro-choice issue is a legal issue that should be decided by the courts.

I support religious liberty, but I also think it is very important as a Republican Party that we bring a compassionate tone when talking about women’s health care issues, when we talk about pro-life and pro-choice.
Elise Stefanik
Tupac was actually pro-choice, which is fantastic. Of course, those moments in rap are few and far between.
Zoe Buckman
Whether you are pro-choice or strongly pro-life, as I am, there should be common ground that abortion ceases to be an option when a baby can live outside the mother’s womb or experience excruciating pain from a procedure.
Kevin Brady
If the American people – pro-choice and pro-life – cannot agree with the basic concept that the life of a baby born alive following a botched abortion should be protected, then when do the rights of these babies begin?
Mercedes Schlapp
Look, I am as pro-choice as anybody.
Michael Capuano
I am politically pro-choice, but personally pro-life. I have my faith but refuse to force it on the world at large – especially this world, so brutal and unjust. I cannot make these wrenching personal life and death decisions for others – nor do I believe they should be made by a church run by childless men.
Julianna Baggott
To say that I am pro life is just wrong. I am personally pro-choice and legislatively pro-choice.

Ellen Malcolm
As a member of the House Pro-Choice Caucus and a strong defender of a woman’s right to choose, my bottom line here is this: women have a constitutional right to access abortion.
