    I always found it funny that nobody wants to be "anti-"anything in this debate. How can you have two opposing sides who are both "pro-?"

    I don't see what's so difficult to understand about this. Someone can believe convicted murderers deserve death without conflicting with a pro-life stance. How many aborted fetuses are guilty of murder?

    Anti sounds bad. Negation always sounds bad.

    But, two sides being pro is not illogical. Black and white are opposites. One side could be pro-black, and the other could be pro-white, and that would make sense (though I have no idea what they are debating).

    Just the same, we could have an anti-black side and an anti-white side, and it would mean about the same thing (note that it wouldn't if there were more choices than just black and white), but like I said, pro always sounds better than anti.

    Not using that phrase would be a good start to ending the confusion.

    The stances of pro-lifers are pretty much common knowledge. Where is the confusion? And why do you care?

    Then changing it to "pro-innocent life" or similar would be better.

    Because it sounds a bit too much like Orwellian Newspeak and people generally feel queasy when doublethink starts spreading?

    Their side can easily say that "pro-choice" is the inaccurate term. That is one of the hang-ups of this debate.

    My solution is simple. Both terms go away. One side can be for abortion, and one side can be against.

    Except that it's not that simple. Not everyone who is opposed to outlawing abortion is "for abortion." I'm certainly not.
