I am a democratic socialist. I believe that from the moment of conception, we all have the right to equality and justice. Please come debate me today.

One could only hope, all "democratic socialists" may one day come to understand the physical nature of "unalienable Rights." Only then will "equality and justice" have a better chance.

Of course it is possible. There is nothing logically inconsistent with a view that people have no right to choose to terminate a life (potential life), and believing that private ownership of capital and voluntary individual plans, should be abolished.

Just as it is possible to be a Free Market Capitalist and be in favour of individual freedom and Pro Choice. The question for the Free Market Capitalist is at what point does the personal freedom to act eclipse another persons right to life. This is a question I personally struggle with.

Being a Leftist is normally only a predictor of being Pro Choice because it is philosophically more inclined to relativism, tribal group think (aka collectivism), and has a history of fighting against anything it views as reactionary (eg Church policies on abortion).
