PhyllisStein was a member who I debated with quite a bit on abortion many moons ago. Back then I considered myself pro life, but she made me realise I can not agree with abortion for non medical cases and still support choice - which I do, and that this is really pro choice. I think she also realised I wasn't some hateful nutty pro lifer, just one that was struggling with the topic.
The long term TTC girls - there are so many - Bel, Bunxx, Shrillian, Starflame, CinderElla and so many more.
