Do you agree with, please vote.

    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.
    This is flat out wrong. The best terms I can come up with are Pro-abortion rights and Anti-abortion rights. You can be fore an act to be legal without being in favor of people doing that act.

    Neither is making a moral claim, both of mine are generic claims on if you want legal access.
    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.

    Except it's not murder, but I suspect that you do not know the definition of murder, anyhow.

    Pro-abortion is easier in my opinion.
    Yeah, I'll agree with that, I just don't think pro-abortion is specific enough, since it implies you are for the act, instead of it just being legal.

    No, your terms where whether or not some one is in favor of abortion. That is incomplete. The debate is over whether or not having abortions should be legal. Without realizing it, you made the same mistake you criticized others for.

    Yes, this. In trying to (correctly) clarify the terms, he again placed it in terms that are not accurate. I dislike guns, but am pro-gun rights. Don't call me pro-gun, cuz I sure as hell do not want to own one.

    If you are in favor of it being legal, you are in favor of abortion.
    There is no moral distinction made.

    It is a simple term, using the terms choice and life are both inherently emotional and don't make a real distinction of legality.

    I did the opposite, solely related to a generic legal understanding.
    The individual details of a person's "favor" for abortion must be hashed out in an explained debate, something that no simple "pro" or "anti" could carry.

    Saying you're pro gun is no reference that you want to own or posses a gun but that you merely want it to be legal.

    You're adding meaning to things that don't otherwise exist.
