Is "Pro-life" the wrong name to give to that movement?Posted by: Charliecdubs
A lot of people who are "pro-choice" say "pro-life" people are not really pro-life and a lot of "pro-life" people say the opposite so what do you think? Is it really the "Pro-life" movement?
Yes they are pro-life
No it's really the wrong name for them
It is a movement that defend life at all ages.
Pro life is good, but a just as acceptable name would be the good guys
a better word for them is "hypocritical morons"
Hmm ... One could argue that by being "for" the unborn child's life they're "Pro-life". But in most cases, when an abortion would be involved, the parents are doing it because it would ruin their life or the child's life as they are not prepared for the child. So in that sense being "Pro-life" would mean you would be against the parents' lives as well as the potential child's livelihood.
"Pro-life" can also imply favoring the life we know definitely exists. "Pro-choice" can also imply tolerating conscious people to behave as they choose. Therefore, "pro-life" can imply tolerating abortion while "pro-choice" can imply opposing abortion. Instead, abortion should be between "pro-potential" and "pro-actualization" positions where we recognize that conscious people can potentially behave as they will versus expecting conscious people to actualize themselves in certain ways.
Should it be called the forced birthing group?
Most of these people support the death penalty, More wars, No healthcare, etc etc So... its the wrong name to give to them
