There has been much ado lately about the label “pro-choice.” Planned Parenthood, and other organizations who accept and promote abortion, are nervously backing away from that label, and are encouraging people to stop using the label “pro-life” to describe people who promote alternatives to abortion.
“These labels limit the conversation,” purrs the video’s narrator. “The next time you talk about abortion, don’t let the labels box you in. Have a different conversation, a conversation that doesn’t divide you, but is based on mutual respect and empathy.”
Don’t mind if I do! Here is a fine example of a supportive, respectful, empathetic doctor offering real choice to a pregnant woman in a difficult situation:
The article says that Rhonda, an 18-year-old college student, got pregnant by her boyfriend, Gary, despite using contraception. The last thing she wanted was a baby, and she argued with her parents until they finally gave in, and helped her get an abortion. The girl chose a medical abortion, and took the first dose of the abortion drug mifepristone, a progesterone receptor antagonist.
