Who says you can’t teach old abortionists new tricks?
It took years for Planned Parenthood to realize that “pro-choice’ wasn’t holding water for the majority of Americans because in the vast majority of cases, those advocating the “pro-choice” position showed disdain for those “choosing” NOT to have an abortion and they did nothing to encourage that choice. They appear only to advocate for and promote one “choice” so it’s hard not to see through the hypocrisy of the label and see abortion advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood for what they are: pro-abortion.
Might I suggest the term “Climate Change” instead?
“Rather than selecting a new term to replace ‘pro-choice,’ Planned Parenthood hopes to move beyond such terms entirely and present abortion as something too complicated to be divided into two sides,” reports Anna North. The question is, will newspapers and television news follow their lead and come up with more “nuanced” description for abortion advocates as well?
And Climate Change is already taken, right?
The musician formerly and now presently known as Prince, very briefly defined himself as an unpronounceable symbol. Maybe Planned Parenthood could create an obscure unpronouncable image to define what abortion is that way they don’t even have to talk about it. They can just widen their eyes slightly and give the knowing nod as if to say…you know what we mean.
