The new Term "Pro-Abortion" coming up from many pro-life people.
I personally think it's sick! There is no way I would consider myself "Pro-Abortion" but I think all women have the right to choose what is right or wrong for themselves.
What is Pro-Abortion anyway?
Wouldn't that be like offering all pregnant women an abortion, regardless of what they wanted?

To me pro-abortion is not much different from pro-choice. If you are pro-choice you want there to be an abortion option available, making you for the option of abortion or pro-abortion. If you are pro-life, you only want the options available that result in the life of the child, thus making you anti-abortion. No matter what name you slap on it, it's still the same principle, you are either for the option of abortion or you are against it.

You are not "either for it or against it". There are many shades of grey. I don't know a single person who is "pro" abortion. I know many, many people who are pro-choice. Those people recognize that others cannot make the decision for each and every woman who faces an unwanted or dangerous pregnancy. To call those who are pro-choice "pro-abortion" is very polarizing and ignores the many different reasons a woman would consider terminating a pregnancy. It is a completely charged term, meant entirely to pass judgement on all people who want abortions to remain safe and legal.
Oh--and the term isn't new. It's been used for years by the anti-choice camp. (There's your for or against--either you're for choice, or you're against it.)
