Anyone who supports laws compelling women to persist in unwanted pregnancies is an extremist. End of story. I am not open to discussion on this.

Thank you for your unusually thoughtful tone in the rest of your comment.
Well, abortion isn't something I feel very strongly about, so I have no desire to discuss this further either. You won't be surprised to learn I don't think all pro-lifers are necessarily extremists. There's another discussion to be had about the word extreme and how we use it. I think it's overly used as a derogatory term as a convenient way of trying to label someone as not mainstream. The trouble is, there's nothing inherently wrong with not being within the mainstream on a certain issue; the majority of people have been wrong about lots of things before.

As for the last part, you'll find you aren't the only person who responds in kind.
