5. Pro-Life Anti-Choice meme

I agree that we need to alter the use of this meme. We have, for too long, allowed the Right Wingers unquestioned
use of this Orwellian Doublespeak term. I suggest that we aggressively address this by referring to them as
"Pro-Birth"....This term cuts through the deception and reveals the actual truth of their position as expressed and
revealed through their actions.
The "ReichWing" uses the terminology of "Pro-Life," yet promote policies that only seem to want children to
be born into a dog-eat-dog, Ayn Randian, 'survival of the richest" world. They do not, in actuality care, or have
any plan to help these children once they arrive.....far from being "Pro-Life" they encourage a harsh, heartless,
almost Satanic (i.e. Ayn Rand's "everyone for themselves philosphy" even though she, herself, died while
living on government benefits...this philosophy was actually used as the basis for the founding of the Church
of Satan) approach to the world....
