    Same could be said of labels such as "pro-gun" and "anti-gun" or "pro-war" and "anti-war." Pro-choice means the support for the legalization of abortion. Pro-abortion, to me, rather means that one thinks abortion is a good thing and should be done.

    We do have a problem with "going too far " with many things.
    IMO, not one red cent to fund abortions should be taken from OUR treasury..
    Oddly, despite being pro-abortion rights, I do not have a problem with the concept of federal funds not being allowed to pay for abortions except under limited circumstances, which is the case now. This though seems to be taking things to a new level.

    So what do you think? Is this taking things too far, or are these proposed new restrictions reasonable?
    Agree, we do have this "sickness" of "going too far".
    Not one red cent should be used to fund abortions from OUR treasury.

    It's not my fault you fail to see the nuance between pro-choice(wanting abortion to stay legal so that women can have the choice to have the procedure), and pro-abortion(thinking that abortion is a good thing).

    However that is not the definition of pro-abortion.

    Trying to change definitions does not change the fact you are pro-abortion.

    When you can't manage to successfully argue against some one's points, you give them a nasty label and hope people will think they are bad.

    Trying to label some one instead of debating their points does not make you a good debater. The opposite in fact.

    What nasty lable? Are you trying to argue that Merriam-Webster's Medical Dictionary and dictionary.com are wrong? Why do you people oppose being called pro-aboriton when you support legalized abortion?
