That's more of how I see it. "Pro-choice" doesn't mean "guaranteed
abortion", it means exactly what it says it means, that you would like
the choice. Many pro-choice decide to not have an abortion when the
decision comes around, they just don't want the decisions made for
them. So you can be very LDS and be pro-choice. Your choice will just
be to not have the abortion.
