How in-love are you folks with the term "Pro-Choice" ?
Is this seen to be an important element of supporting available/legal abortion ?

Could "Pro-Choice" be replaced ?

How interested are "Pro-Choice" people in making appeals to gray-area, in-betweener voters ?

----------------------------------------------

This discussion is predicated on survey discussions with "Pro-Life" leaning voters. Some of these voters lean over quite a ways, of course. A surprising number do not.

What comes out is that a good half of these "Pro-Life" voters differentiate opposing abortion, generally, with wanting to outlaw it as a matter of course. The language of the questions matter.

Take away the capital letters and just about everybody is pro-life. What else ? You would have to stop breathing asap to declare otherwise. For a neutral observer, this pro-life thing has a built in advantage.

Choice is more complicated.

Choice =Not_Equal= Necessity


This problem with necessity... a blind spot for using "Pro-Choice." Any comments ???

1. I'd suggest that rather than have two parallel discussions
the discussion be continued in the "Choice" forum (all members who can post in "Pro-Choice" can post there, but not vice versa).
