    What does it mean to be pro-choice? Well, many times people use the term to hide the sad truth of what they are advocating. Pro-choice does not always mean that someone is advocating abortion, but rather that someone is advocating that it is up to the woman to have an abortion or not. Pro-choice people want the woman to have a choice and to make their own choices.

    The real issue though is what are the choices? Generally the options are to carry the baby to term or to kill it. That’s the choice – it’s a choice to kill. So next time you encounter an pro-choice advocate, ask that person what choice they are advocating. Ask that person if he or she knows that it’s a choice to kill.

    Poor choice is indeed a better word for abortion than is pro-choice.

    Also at a Pro-Life talk we went to recently the speaker( a lawyer who is very active in the pro-life movement) said the word birth-control is so wrong because contraception results neither in ‘birth’ or ‘control’.

    Maybe you,ve heard that said before-I just thought it was worth repeating.

    I have heard that since the term “pro-choice” is not correct, we should refer to it as the choice to kill as you said. To leave out the words “to kill” would be incorrect and covering up the reality of the situation.

    Yeah, I’ve never thought of that before – you make a good point. It’s not really controlling the birth, it just ends it before it even has a chance to begin.
