HuffPo blogger’s new name for abortion support fails harder than you can imagine


Life

 blogger Janis Powers doesn’t like the terms “pro-life” or “pro-choice.” She feels they stack the deck too firmly in pro-lifers’ favor, the former “cast[ing] any dissenters in the shadow of death,” the latter a vague “passive approach to conflict resolution,” “refusing to decry any belief as wrong.” Personally, I thought refusing to decry any belief as wrong was pretty much the only way to sanitize killing your own son or daughter, but Powers has decided that “[i]t’s time to aggressively deconstruct the Pro-Life messaging and let the true meanings of the words speak for themselves”:

This definition makes patently clear that there is no “life” at fertilization. When a sperm and an ovum join, they set off a complex series of chemical reactions. Simply, the fertilized cell starts to divide, a process called mitosis. As this process repeats itself, the fertilized egg becomes a cluster of cells, which then magically and beautifully becomes a human embryo.
