Pro-Life

Pro-Life January 16, 2018

You say you are Pro-Life.

I am Pro-Life.

Everybody is Pro-Life.

Hitler was Pro-Life…except for Jews.

Stalin was Pro-Life…except for his political enemies.

Serial killers are Pro-Life…except for their targets.

What you mean by Pro-Life is not what I mean.

For you, it is a euphemism for anti-abortion.

Pro-Life sounds sweet and innocent, but it is acidly passive-aggressive.

What you mean is that if I am not anti-abortion, I am pro-abortion, and therefore anti-life.

That Is a logical fallacy known as a false dichotomy.

I am not pro-abortion.

I am Pro-Choice.

Pro-Choice is not a euphemism.

Whether a woman wants an abortion or not is okay with me.

But if a woman wants an abortion it is not okay with you.

You are anti-abortion.

Pro-Life has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Hiding your agenda behind a euphemism is disingenuous.

Passive-aggressive behavior is cowardly.

You are Anti-Abortion.

Why not be courageous and give your views that honest name?
