    Adding things like "choice" and "life" is only meant to emotionalize the debate, because I know of a lot of pro-"choicers" that don't like other choices and a lot of pro-"lifers" that support things like the death penalty and defensive killing.
    I have no problem with this, but pro-choicers do.

    Me personally, I'm a "I don't give a **** about abortion, there are bigger things to worry about."

    But the label is meant to emotionalize and sell the position, so I could see what the more accurate labeling is a problem for them.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I do not think any logical minded pro- choice individual would be against that. It does seem to be more accurate. I don't think the media would like it though.

    I disagree completely, I consider myself pro-life personally, and pro-choice with regards to the legal aspect of it. Morally I don't agree with abortion, but I don't think it should be illegal either.

    Ok, seriously? You see some sort of valid analogy here? Charging a new born for murder is the same to you as an intentional act of an adult. Wow.

    That's fine, but there is nothing wrong with being pro-abortion, my position could be defined as such and frankly I don't care.

    Edit: Actually, the pro abortion position is, in favor of legal access to abortion services.
    So it would still fit.

    Honestly, this position makes the least sense to me.

    Pro-abortion insinuates that you favor abortion as an act, that you think it's a good thing. I don't agree with that, but I don't think the government should make the procedure illegal.

    Pro-choice, my choice is pro-life. I'll let other people make their own choice.

    Then to be more specific, you are pro-legal access to abortion services.
    Pro-abortion is easier in my opinion.
