Subject: RE: BS: Roe vs Wade ByPass Effort
Pro-choice refers to the womans's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion. That is what everyone who uses the term means by it. It is, in that sense, perfectly accurate. Opportunistic moralising about other areas of choice whenever the word crops up, Guffers, is disingenuous and misleading. And thoroughly dishonest.
I suppose that the people who oppose the woman's right to abortion are anti-choice. That's accurate too, but again it carries that polarising factor with it. It reeks of intolerance and lack of understanding. I happen to think that people who oppose a woman's right to have an abortion are those things, but the name doesn't exactly help.
