Time to get rid of 'choice'?

"I am a progressive, patriotic American—and I am not ‘pro-choice.’ If you believe in a strong, progressive America, you are probably not ‘pro-choice’ either," writes Jeffrey Feldman, who points out that Roe v. Wade did not say that a woman has a right to choose abortion at any time, for any reason, by any means. Seeking a more effective response to Republican cries of "baby killer," he suggests framing the message to take advantage of Republican vulnerability: "PRIVACY AND PROTECTION," "CHILDREN FIRST," or "GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT FORCE WOMEN TO HAVE BABIES." Long but well worth the read. (Frameshop)
