  •  Redefinition (0+ / 0-)

    One of the greatest parallels I see, is the attempt to change the language so the choices aren't so stark. Calling abstinence temperance is a lot like calling anti-abortion pro-life.

    Or like calling abortion choice?  ;)

    •  I can be pro-choice as public policy (0+ / 0-)

      Yet be anti-abortion as personal policy. They describe different thought processes though one allows the other.

      Anti-abortion and pro-life refer to the same thing; it's not only a redefinition for rhetorical effect, it assumes a fact not in evidence; that life begins at conception not at birth.

      If it were true, they couldn't say it on Fox News. -6.62 -5.90
