We need a better word than anti-abortion

Everybody is pro-life.

Not everybody is pro-choice.

Anti abortion is too long and sounds "bleh". What's a better word for people who are not pro-choice?

3. The anti abortion crowd have never

been pro life. They are PRO-BIRTH, after that you are on your own.

7. Pro-Fetus....Hunger Gamers....Ghouls

cause most social conservatives don't care much about human rights after birth and many are pro death penalty, well unless you are trying to keep a person in some form of forced vegetative state.

34. It seems to be a general purpose word these days, doesn't it?

I swear so much more often now, simply because profanity is the only way to express how I feel about these individuals in charge of things.

35. exactly. and the problem is, even the swear words do not begin to convey the depth

of the horror and awfulness of what we are dealing with.

10. Anti-choice or forced birther.

You can be pro-choice but anti-abortion for your own choice.

People who want to deny choice to others are anti-choice, and support forced birth.

11. Anti-choice

It is a binary thing and it is that simple.

ETA: Or we could call them fetus fetishists, because they tend to worship the fetus but not care one bit what happens after it is born.

That says a lot... You are against free choice, against "freedom" to make your own decisions.

24. Anti-choice is my personal preference

Because that's essentially what it's all about. People writing laws trying to stamp out abortion rights don't want women to be able to CHOOSE to have an abortion (And, I might add, in the Northern Marianas Islands/Saipan, they don't want their female indentured servants to be able to choose NOT to have an abortion if their sweatshop/sex club bosses demand it).

27. I like anti-abortion.

I like it better than anti-choice. Pro-life people see adoption and raising the child as two possible options. So, technically, they are not "anti-choice". The only choice they don't accept is abortion. So, anti-abortion fits.

I have known anti-abortion people to call themselves pro-choice. I hate it, but I've seen it.

28. Republicans are not Pro-Life

If they were pro-life, they would be pro-health care for all, pro-education, pro-jobs, pro-fair pay, and anti-death penalty.

32. Totalitarian and Dictatorial work for me

The people who would go out in the streets and protest the bizarre and undemocratic thought that just maybe you don't need a belt-fed AR-15 that comes complete with a free pack of 50 Hillary Clinton targets also believe it's God's Will that the embryo lodged halfway up your Fallopian tube should be allowed to make you bleed to death.
