Part 0: What Am I (Politically)?

The question “where do I fall on the political spectrum” has been one that’s been plaguing my mind for months now and, unfortunately, I do not have a good answer.

Here’s how this post will work, the first half will talk about what I mean when I say I’m “pro-death” and how that interacts with the abortion debate and the “sanctity of life”. The second part will operate under a framework of NOT pro-death and I’ll explain why, under that framework, I’m pro-choice to an extent. So, let’s do it.
