    "PRO Life" Mantle! When ever we discuss Abortion we should always claim we are the Pro Life side of the argument! The Right's ability to claim they are Pro Life must be challenged. Women who have an abortion must know they are NOT involved in the taking a life. Abortions are a simple harmless medical procedure when done by a licenses Physician. People who perform or have this procedure are actually Pro Life and should be informed of this fact. Women who bear the vital responsibity of having a child must have the absolute right to determine if they can and want to take on all that having a child brings with it. So deciding not to have a child is a sign of a true pro Life decision. I believe when anytime we discuss abortion we must take back the "Pro Life" moniker. There should be many arguments over this term like this "I'm Pro life" "No I'm Pro life".  At least we can neutralize it's impact. If both sides cant get past who owns this term there will be the need to redefine both sides.
