In the early 1970s a bill was introduced in the state House to legalize abortion on demand. It never passed, but a local newspaper (now defunct) wrote an editorial stating that any abortion bill should be fair to women but not lead to the wholesale slaughter of innocents.
A woman wrote the best letter to the editor that I ever read. She said: "Regarding your editorial, are you saying the slaughter of innocents is OK, so long as it's not done on a wholesale basis?"
This made me think that, as has been said, if you control the language you control the issue. The radical left has been very good at this -- substituting language that allows them to avoid the real issue. The "right to choose" comes to mind: the right to choose what?
Since we have allowed more than 50 million abortions since Roe v. Wade, maybe abortion in America should be called what it really is, "the wholesale slaughter of innocents."
