Euphemisms can’t change the truth about abortion

In a recent op-ed, Susan Estrich claimed she could get three-quarters of the country to vote pro-choice simply by carefully phrasing the question. Doesn’t she realize that’s been the pro-choice strategy all along?
Using such euphemisms as “reproductive freedom” or “women’s health rights,” it seeks to cloud the issue and obscure the facts. However, as John Adams told us, facts are stubborn things.
Linda McCartney once said, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, the whole world would be vegetarian.” Put glass walls on the abortion clinics and the whole world will vote pro-life.
