Hm. I was reading an article by pro-lifers about a march for reproductive rights. The merits of the article aren't worth going into (they talked about being there as unbiased and objective journalists, and finally decide on the summary, "this is pure evil").

But the way they continually referred to the pro-choice folks as "the pro-abortion movement" made me step back for a second and think. In general, I refer to the folks who want abortion made illegal as "pro-life", because it's their term. I don't think it's a very good description of their position, but I accept it as the appropriate term because it's the one they chose. However, they don't do our side the same courtesy.

Obviously I need to start calling the sides "pro-choice" and "unwanted baby". "Sir, as a representative of the viewpoint that women should have unwanted children, how do you feel about this?"
