When it comes to abortion, mostly yes. When it comes to anything else, not at all.

Voting? No room to complain.

Yes, if we're talking about abortion.

When people say pro-choice, I think that's in relation to abortion. We don't use pro-life or pro-choice on other issues. So yeah, the democrats are pro-choice.

No, Democrats are not pro choice in any respect. Even on the issue of abortion they are not truly pro choice.

Actually I take back my first point. There are some areas where they are pro choice.

No, abortion procedures only consider the opinion of one of the two party's affected by the decision. That's a standard of "choice" that would not be considered valid in any other aspect of western society.

You can do it your own way, if it's done just how they say. (Great Metallica song by the way)

I don't think the party claims to be broadly pro-choice, the Democratic Party certainly is in favor of women having the option and access to an abortion. So it's definitely pro-choice on abortion, but doesn't really claim to be on all issues.

Guns, drug use, health insurance, union membership etc.

You're missing the bigger picture. Sometimes you have to limit some things in order to provide far more liberties down the road. When people can do what they want with their lives because they haven't died of cancer or gunshots, that's real freedom.

Nobody is advocating that kind of freedom.

You have a false dichotomy where you have absolute freedom with no restrictions and restrictions on some liberties. Nobody is advocating an anarchistic freedom.

I didn't say they were. You've lost me, sorry.

Aren't they for the greatest amount of choice in regards to drugs?

When it comes to abortion, sort of. Most mainstream Democrats probably only support it in the 1st and 2nd trimesters. When it comes to other issues, not at all.
