I'm late to this effort, but would encourage other pro-life bloggers who read my blog to go and sign up in Jill Stanek's comments section, if you'd like.
One of the strangest uses of the "choice" euphemism for the brutal slaughter of pre-born human beings came about during a state's "Choose Life" license plate debate. A pro-abortion group proposed a second plate be made available, with the phrase "Choose Choice" on it--not realizing that this ridiculous phrase betrays all too clearly that people who are "pro-choice" value the legalized killing of unborn human beings, but are too squeamish to say so. After all, though, what sort of plate could the pro-abortion group propose? "Choose Abortion?" "Choose Death?" Choose a Dead and Dismembered Baby?" (Yes, I know that last is too long, but it accurately describes the situation.)
As is scintillatingly obvious to anybody with intact brain cells, being "pro-choice" means that you believe that women have the right to choose to pay someone to kill their babies for them in utero, so they won't have to give birth and then further choose either to be mothers or to give their babies up for adoption. I guess "Choosy Moms Choose Dead Babies" isn't that great of a slogan either, but that's what "choice" means: the choice to kill what is alive, growing, and human--the flesh and blood of the person arranging for the prenatal hit.
Women these days have lots of choices. They can choose not to have sex if they're not prepared to have a child. They can choose to respect themselves enough not to participate in the "hookup" culture. They can choose to see sex as a sacred gift and a responsibility instead of an entertainment choice or a way to make sure the guy keeps calling. And if they make bad choices in these areas, they can choose to make an infertile couple's dream come true by generously continuing to be pregnant for nine short months (eight, really, by the time most women figure out that they are expecting) so that the other couple can finally have a child. They can even accept the role of single motherhood that their life choices have led them to--and can do a terrific job, with the support of society, churches, family and friends.
With all of those choices--good, happy choices--they can make, why do we insist that "choice" means "pay someone to kill your baby?"
Well, pro-choice readers? Why does "choice" have to mean over fifty million dead American babies?
