Abortion Proponents Have Quietly Dropped the Term 'Pro-Choice'

The New York Times’ Jackie Calmes writes of a new trend for abortion proponents: “For all the talk about women’s issues in this year’s midterm election campaigns, something is missing. One of the most enduring labels of modern politics — pro-choice — has fallen from favor, a victim of changed times and generational preferences.” Calmes adds, “No pithy phrase has replaced pro-choice. Activists talk mainly of ‘women’s health’ and ‘economic security,’ usually with policy specifics.” Of course, the Left is always changing the meaning of vocabulary to suit their agenda. They can’t talk plainly of abortion because it’s such a visceral issue. So they lie about “women’s health” instead. If they cared about women’s health, however, they’d counsel young women against premarital sex due to its accompanying health risks, as well as against abortion, which kills a child and has profoundly negative physical and emotional consequences for the mother. Whatever they call it, it’s not truth in advertising.
