I would like to be sure that a choice forum remains on DU3

We've got an awesome group to regulars who post in Choice. In today-world we have "Choice" and "Pro-choice". On DU3, I only see "Pro-choice". I am ok with just one.... but if we have to live with just one it would be the one where anti-choicers are not welcome.

if you don't like abortion, don't have one, but isn't it a Democratic value for people to make their own decision?

That said I think the reality is that a group is needed! So I subscribed, although in the old DU I never spent much time in most of the groups including this one.

the way that it supports other political minorities--i.e., allowing anti-women (anti-choice) posts.

Now, we don't have to allow that sort of thing anymore because the COMMUNITY decides what's acceptable and what's not. If you see a post by someone anti-choice, you are allowed to alert on it as a community standards violation and let a jury decide. Since DU is about 90% supportive of choice, the odds that the anti-choice crap will be hidden are quite high.

I like the new DU *much* better.
