From “Pro-Choice” to “Reproductive Justice”

Listening to WAMU (NPR) guest Dorothy E. Roberts bemoan her belief that “pro-choice” doesn’t cut it any more as an effective advocacy slogan.

As a replacement, she suggests, “reproductive justice,” which, Roberts opined, would allow abortion advocates to tie the pro-abortion issue (my term) with other so-called social justice calls like economic justice.

Boy, they can’t control the language enough, can they? It’s amazing how they never run out of euphemisms to avoid accurately describing the polices and actions they advocate.
