    You may disagree, but I really hate it when progressives use the term "pro-life". To me, that implies that those of us who support abortion rights are pro death or something. I personally use the term anti-choice, but even anti-abortion is better than pro-life (although one can theoretically be pro-choice and anti-abortion).

    Otherwise, really great diary that does a great job of highlighting how nonsensical opposition to birth control is. I am all for respecting religious beliefs but as you point out, those who oppose abortion should be pushing for more access to birth control to reduce the number of abortions.

    Very good point you made about the fact that nobody thinks it's a good thing for a woman to have to choose whether or not to have an abortion. As you said, it can be very traumatic, though arguably less traumatic than giving a baby up for adoption. That is a point that sometimes gets lost.
