Matthews’s Definitions

So you can’t be pro-life if you’re not for jailing women who procure abortions? I favor a legal regime that protects unborn life. If taking away medical licenses from people who commit abortions and fining people who commit them without a license provided that protection, I’d be for that. Does that make me pro-choice? Is NARAL okay with that? Is the Supreme Court? Is Matthews?
