Pro-choice and Pro-death penalty.

I see a fetus as the closest biological term that applies, a parasite. It feeds of the mother and makes her incapable of doing certain things. A baby I see as a human being, and then has rights. But before it reaches a certain developmental stage it has no brain activity, and it's nothing. It should be up to the women to decide whether she wants to keep it to term or not (although I also think the man should have a say in the matter). I don't believe in adoption as long as the parents are fit and well. There's too many unwanted children as it is.

Pro-death penalty I think for things such as terrorism, genocide, serial murders and severe child abuse/pedophilia. I do not believe that a person who has gone that far down the path of cruelty and hatred can return, and I'd rather not use my tax money on keeping them locked up and 'rehabilitated'.

Not really. Infants have rights., fetuses do not.

Pro-choice, anti Death.

I think everyone who can make a baby should be able to make a choice if you can raise it.

I'm anti death penalty because i think its wrong to kill someone to show him/her that killing people is wrong. Its not logic. Just put someone away, alone in a room for the rest of his/her life. Also if the judge made a mistake you can let someone go free, when he/she is death you cant do anything but put the judge on death penalty for killing an innocent person.

So far, 87% of WP thinks that killing humans is sometimes justified.

We never claimed to be virgin angels.

But we are practical and truthful.

No.

38% believe that killing humans is sometimes justified, and 47% don't define "human being" like you do.

If this is in reference to abortion,
supporting it is not in any way contingent on defining the fetus as a non-human being.

True. Indeed, my opinion is that the status as human being is not significant to the question. But I believe my bad statistic is less misleading than donnie_darko's.

I wouldn't say 100%. What about pacifists, like myself?
