No, vegans have a range of opinions on every issue, just like any other section of the population.
This is the reply I gave when this question was asked yesterday, including my response to Jenasaurus:
'I'm vegan and I'm pro-choice. I don't see the two as being connected in any way.
I support a woman's right to control her own fertility, by legal abortion if necessary, eg when contraception fails, as it sometimes does.
Whenever this question is raised on V&V several very young people, usually still at school, with limited life experience inevitably answer this question by saying 'protection works, use it or don't have sex or go ahead with any pregnancy'.
It is ludicrous to talk of using abortion as contraception; nobody does that. Abortion is usually a difficult decision and is a hideous experience that no woman goes ahead with lightly.
I have had an abortion too. Years ago I was in a desperate situation and could see no other way out. I have no regrets about the decision I took and never have had, though I wish the situation had never happened. I can tell you that if I had not been living in a country where abortion was legal I would have found a way to have that abortion somehow. That is what happens in countries where there is no legal abortion and it is what happened before abortion was legalised in other countries. Stories of backstreet abortionists and desperate women self aborting with knitting needles, coat hangers and other implements are horrific, but true. Countless women have died in this way.
It's poorer women who resort to such measures - well-off women have always been able to buy abortion, legal or not, and in any case can afford to provide for children.
So no, there's no contradiction. In fact being pro-choice shows greater compassion and humanity in my opinion.
Jenasauras, words almost fail me. Your argument is one of the most self-righteous, ignorant and judgemental I’ve ever come across, totally devoid of any compassion or kindness.'
Skully: no 'discomfort' here. There's no connection between the two positions and no contradiction at all in being vegan and pro-choice. One day when you've time will you tell us all about these 'other parts of the world' (other than where btw?) where the 'REAL' vegans live? Where they are , how much time you spent/spend there, did you live among the REAL vegans for long, do they know you consider yourself an expert on what they think and do? That kind of thing? I know you consider yourself our intellectual superior, but we'll try to keep up. Thanks.
