Andrea Mitchel just stopped a guest who ID'd herself as "pro-life"... [View all]

...and told her: "What I call anti-abortion...". Bravo Andrea.

As a grade school student in the mid-'60s when abortions were illegal, my mother was my prime political influence, and legalizing abortion was one of her central causes. I'll never forget one afternoon, when I got off the school bus and found my mother in the house crying openly.

Fearing something terrible had happened, I asked her what was wrong. She pointed out an article in the local newspaper describing the death of an area woman who hemorrhaged from a botched coat hanger abortion.

Something terrible had indeed happened, and people like Mitchel's guest would have been fine with that. She didn't deserve to call herself "pro-life", and Mitchel did what so many others in her line of work should begin doing.

Stop letting these people identify themselves as effin life savers.
