In the course of an informal exchange on abortion it occurred to me that the pro-life position is literally more pro-choice and pro-woman than is the traditional “pro-choice” position (i.e., advocates of abortion on demand).
As a pro-lifer, I’m so pro-choice I don’t think any human being should be denied the opportunity to live and make choices. I’m so pro-choice I don’t think that any potential mothers should be denied the opportunity to be born and decide whether to get pregnant or not. I’m so pro-woman I don’t think that any female babies should be aborted. I’m so pro-woman I don’t want any women to experience the heightened incidence of depression, injury, death, alcoholism, drug addiction, divorce, sexual dysfunction, post-traumatic stress disorder, and infertility, that statistically follow abortion.* Most every sign of women’s physical and psychological health is harmed by abortion. I’m pro-choice. I’m pro-woman BECAUSE I’m pro-life.
