If you wanted to lobby a government (federal, state, county, city) to provide funds to support the above, I would not call that extremist.

However, if you want to pass laws making abortion (or some abortions) illegal, that to me is extremist. It's a demand that your views outweigh other individuals' right to make their own personal choices, that your notion of how things ought to be should trump others' moral and medical decisions, just because you say so.

(Not you you, unless applicable.)
Ok, well perhaps I'm wrong, but I really don't think I was being that unfair to your view, simply because I don't think there are many pro-lifers who wouldn't want to pass such laws. It doesn't seem like there'd be a lot of people who partake in the above activities who wouldn't be in favor of striking down Roe. Again, I could be wrong, but that's just my instinct.
She said the theme of this party's the Industrial Age, and you came in dressed like a train wreck.
