The Power of Words

Today the Senate defeated a bill which would have offered health care to children. Unborn children. Abortion advocates fear that if we start covering unborn children under children's healthcare plans, people might start thinking of 'products of conception' and 'blobs of tissue' as children. They have been striving, since the now defunct argument about 'viablility' in the 1970's to own the battle over what to call the unborn child. About what to call themselves.
NARAL once theNational Association for Repeal of Abortion Laws, was changed to National Abortion Rights Action League, however it is now renamed Pro-Choice America. It's all about your choice of words, are you pro-choice or anti-choice, or as the news likes to call us 'enemies of choice'.
Read this quote from one of the founders of NARAL aetheist abortionist, turned pro-life Catholic, Dr Bernard Nathanson, in a speech from 1980:
"There was only silence from the opposition. We fed a line of deceit, of dishonesty, of fabrication of statistics and figures; we coddled, caressed, and stroked the press. We cadged money from various sources and we, in one short year, succeeded in striking down the abortion laws of New York State and in one fell swoop established the city of New York as the abortion capital of the world. We were calling ourselves pro-abortionists and pro-choice. In fact what we were were abortifiers; those who like abortion."
So the losers are poor women who have the misfortune of needing healthcare while pregnant. Aren't these the very women which the feminists claim to empower, to support, to give choices?

There were thousands of true feminists in India today, marching against sex-selection abortions and infanticide(redundant, I know) in which baby girls are being killed in the millions. These women understand something Pro-Choice America never will.
You can't kill some women while you speak about empowering others. True feminists are pro-life. Women deserve better than abortion.
