***Pretty Cool: A New Google Extension Will Change Every Mention Of ‘Pro-Life’ To ‘Anti-Choice’***

If you’ve noticed that the politicians who claim the “pro-life” label are often singularly focused on restricting abortion, and aren’t necessarily working on other policy proposals that could save lives, there’s a new Google extension for you.

An extension released this week will change every mention of “pro-life” to “anti-choice” once it’s added to a Chrome browser. “Tired of seeing the fraught term ‘pro-life’ used ubiquitously and incorrectly, we conceived of this extension to shift the language of the discussion towards a more accurate framework,” explains an online description of the “Choice Language” tool.

The extension was created by an activist who wishes to remain anonymous; she partnered with the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund to release it to the public this week.
“We thought it was a really interesting and creative idea,” Andrea Miller, the president of NIRH, told ThinkProgress. “We agreed with her that the language in this discussion really matters.”

This should be fun!

Hurst City Council candidate Jeff Childers Cobern, 40, faces at least one opponent for the Place 4 seat: fellow political newcomer Jeff Childers. Longtime incumbent Anna Holzer, 88, said she is not seeking re-election. The candidate filing period ends at 5 p.m. Friday for the May 7 election.
