What Pro-Lifers REALLY want
Taryn De Vere

Generalising from anecdotes of people not thinking this through doesn’t make you sound like you have a strong case. I’m a former pro-lifer who did think things through — up to a point — and I could tell you about lots of pro-choicers who were confrontational while very ill-prepared.

Also, to be pro-choice very much is to be pro-abortion. You don’t have to call yourself that, but actively denying that makes you sound like yours is a cause that dares not speak its name. I’ve never met a death penalty supporter who insisted on being called something milder — such as, I don’t know, “pro-option” — with the clearly strawman argument that “pro-death-penalty” made it sound like they wanted as many people executed as possible.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
