What up with this??? (abortion related)

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?

  • Sounds like to me, They would be all for abortion.. No matter when or terms. I feel all women have a choice.

  • I didnt know this was a new term... you are either anti- or pro-..most people say they are prochoice meaning they really don't care what other people do with their bodies...its their choice. i guess if you are proabortion you are all for it and you believe in it rather than some other options and you support it for other reasons

  • It's just yet another stupid label put upon others to further polarize the issue instead of bringing everyone together to make progress.

  • That is ridiculous.

  • I have never heard that. I have heard and read Pro-CHOICE. In other words, lets allow people to CHOOSE what happens in THEIR OWN lives.

  • I would think it would be hard to make progress on an issue that some believe is murder and others do not...

    You are either for it or against it....

  • 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.

  • This is being said, I believe, in response to pro-lifers being called "anti-choice." It's a game of trading insults that never adds anything to the discussion.

  • 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.)

  • With progress you should know it is a child not a choice.
