Here's a thread of polls on abortion; everyone of any gender should be able to participate.

Boosts are encouraged and appreciated, to get the polls out and circulating outside of our usual nonbinary bubble.

If you identify as more than one, e.g. nonbinary man, genderfluid cis man/trans woman, vote in as many polls as you feel apply.

Women who were categorised as girls when you were born, which of the following is closest to your stance on abortion?

Men who were categorised as boys when you were born, which of the following is closest to your stance on abortion?

Trans women and women who were categorised as male when you were born, which of the following is closest to your stance on abortion?

Trans men and men who were categorised as female when you were born, which of the following is closest to your stance on abortion?

#Nonbinary people, which of the following is closest to your stance on abortion?

Thank you, everyone. :)

If you are up for RTing that'd be a big help - obviously the majority of our followers are nonbinary, so anything anyone can do to get the poll in front of cisgender and transgender men and women is much appreciated.

If there are lots of votes I'll update this thread with some graphs when the polls close.

Thanks again!

At the moment, the least represented group in these polls is trans women:

- Cis women: 144
- Cis men: 93
- Trans women: 70
- Trans men: 76
- Nonbinary people: 227

Someone made a good point, so I'll add this:

If you feel for whatever reason like it's not your place to have an opinion on it (or you just don't have an opinion on it), but there is a poll that represents your gender, please choose "other" so that you are counted in the total for your gender!

@gendercensus I'd not use "pro life" for anti choice. Full disclosure, I answered "pro choice" for trans woman and for non-binary.

@gendercensus The actual answer would be "it's complicated". I believe in Jewish halacha which is not so pro choice. At the same time I believe that other people may not be compelled to my views, especially in a pluralistic secular state/society (which I am strongly for). So politically I am pro choice of course.

@project1enigma I think if your Jewish preference for yourself isn't something you necessarily want to apply to others, and you want all pregnant people to be able to choose, that puts you firmly in the pro-choice column!

@gendercensus Yes definitely. There are alas too many orthodox Jews who see this separation between our "internal" rules and the secular state less. But in turn, as far as I know most non orthodox Jews are quite strongly pro choice, together with a few orthodox ones like me.
