On 22 January 1973 the Supreme Court issued 2 rulings that will go down in history as the most horribly infamously wrong decisions the Court ever made. For the few people who have no idea what I am talking about that is the day that their rulings on Roe v Wade & Doe v Bolton allowed abortion for virtually every reason from the 1st mpment of conception to birth.
For the past 7 years NARAL Pro-Choice America has been running Blog for Choice Day
as a way to celebrate a woman's right to choose abortion. However, the 1 word they carefully avoid in their celebration of abortion is abortion. They talk about "reproductive rights
" or "choice
". But they almost always avoid the choice they are talking about, abortion.
That avoidance of the word abortion is a bit ironic given that NARAL began as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws. Later they became the National Abortion Rights Action League, & then the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League. It was in 2005 when they cut out the word abortion & added Pro-Choice instead.
They stopped using the word abortion because more & more people are waking up to the fact that abortion is wrong. So they talk about choice isntead because it sounds so innocent. But make no mistake, they are talking about abortion. & not as 1 option of many, but the only option. We have seen that with their recent attempts to shut down Crisis Pregnancy Centers, prevent women from having sonograms & the like. For them, it is abortion only.
This year they are putting special emphasis on working to elect candidates who support their position. They saw what happened last year as more & more of the truth about the abortion industry got out. That truth, that the abortion industry is willing to cover up rape, incest, white slavery as well as how unsafe many abortion mills are, coming out resulted in huge losses of support as well as funding. This year they know even more than ever they have to avoid the word abortion & paint this as something other than what it is.
Last year, Pro-Life bloggers said enough. Lead by Jill Stanek the 1st annual "Ask Them What They Mean By ‘Choice’ Blog Day,” aka “Blog Against Pro-Abort
Cover-Up Rhetoric for Killing Children Day,” was held. 99 Pro-life bloggers, including me, & countless activists overwhelmed 90 pro-abortion bloggers. By midmorning NARAL had
to abandon its Twitter hashtag #BlogforChoiceDay because us Pro-lifers took it
This year, the call has gone out to do it again. & again the charge is being led by Jill Stanek @ her blog. (Announcing
2nd Annual “Ask Them What They Mean by ‘Choice’” Blog Day, January 22
) The process is simple. "On January 22, any time you read pro-aborts spouting obscure “choice” rhetoric
on a blog, website, Facebook, or Twitter, call them out on it. Ask them to
explain what the “choice” euphemism means. Tweeters plan to use their
If you are a blogger, plan on posting about “choice” on January 22."

NARAL has a list
of those participating in their blog day that you can choose from to respond to their posts. Do not be surprized to find out your comments get deleted later if the blog automaticly posts them. Or that they don't get approved if the comments arer moderated. As I said in a post
on this last year: "The truth is, they don't want to have an honest discussion about what they mean
by choice. To do so means that they would admit what it is they want to happen
is that an abortion will take place
." All they want to do is promote their side & lie about the Pro-life side. As I pointed out in another post
, they are afraid of a fair & honest debate. All they want to do when it comes to the Pro-life side is spew out huge amounts of hate & vitreol towards us.
However, we are not to respond in kind. Ask them what they mean by choice, point out where they are misrepresenting us & challenge their claims in a peaceful, respectful way. We have truth on our side so we don't need to resort to their tactics.
1 thing that this will do, is let those who are supporting "choice" know that they are not going to go unchallenged in their attempts to sugar coat what they want.
