If you are pro choice then you cannot possibly be vegetarian. Why would you ever believe in the sanctity of animal life but not human life?

I am vegan, Even more strict than vegetarian. I am also pro choice.

My reasons for being vegan are not moral reasons so I have no problem with being pro choice.

You said it's not possible, I am living proof it is.

one source cites that zygote is when it becomes human. When the sperm enters egg. I can quote it.

@timmyjames What makes it human? DNA? Is a flake of skin human? Blood? Is cutting fingernails in your view analogous to chopping off little humans from the big human? At what point is the embryo human? Sperm? Egg? First time it multiplies at a cellular level? Can you be more specific?

I don"t care if it"s an embryo, It"s still a human

There are tons of ways vegans can remain consistent even when their choice to be vegan is based on moral grounds.

1. Practical reasons. Abortion being legal leads to better societal outcomes.

2. Personhood doesn't start until X point. IE 'when they can feel pain' or 'when brain activity starts' et cetera.

Just like vegans accept that people who eat meat for health reasons have no other choice.

Here is an argument for why pro choice should be acceptable, Regardless of personal dietary choices. .
You can start your next rebuttal against it if you want.

1) Killing an embryo is different from killing a living animal morally. The embryo has no feelings and it's not sentient. Religion seems to be the common obstruction to this argument.

You probably should have been more clear in your wording :). I can play devils advocate if you'd like and take that challenge on too.

Yes, But I was hoping to debate someone who was vegan for moral reason
