Topic: Pro-choice and pro-abortion
What is the distinction between pro-choice and pro-abortion? I have Christians I dialog with who say in utter dismay that nobody is pro-abortion - how could they be?
An old axiom in psychiatry says, "Believe behavior." People would rarely admit that they are for abortion, but it is behavior that proves otherwise. Currently, the law allows abortion at any time of pregnancy and for any reason. A person who is against abortion can reasonably be expected to demonstrate that in action, by trying to prevent abortion in some way.

If "pro-choice" people want us to believe they are not pro-abortion, they need to show us what they are doing to stop it.

There are people in legislatures all around the country, and in activist groups like NARAL, who actively oppose a ban even on partial-birth abortion. In what sense, then, are they against abortion?
