Is prochoice proabortion?

I thought I would present this for a debate. I do not believe that prochoice is proabortion. Prochoice people just believe in woman's right to choose. We believe that it is wrong to force a woman to give birth when she does not want to. We support contraceptive coverage too.

No.

Since pro means "for", or "in support of", no.

Mandating companies to provide coverage for contraceptives, if that's what you're referring to, (for better or worse) actually limits choice if anything. Moreover, saying that all pro-choice people support contraceptive coverage is an over-interpretation of the term.

Side: No.

Fair enough. I was talking more about prochoice liberals.

Side: No.

"liberals" are against the state regulating private companies to force them to provide contraceptives.

Side: Yes.

I'm pretty sure that doesn't even apply to all pro-choice liberals, either.

Side: Yes.

It is just like saying, "I support the troops." When someone makes this remark, it does not necessarily mean the person supports killing others in war.

Side: No.

Pro abortion just means that you think it is ok for people to have abortions. By being pro choice you mean the same thing. Pro abortion doesn't mean you are happy to see someone get an abortion.

Plus, people who are pro life are anti choice. :)

Side: Yes.

Hella agreed. I did not think of it that way. Thanks Cartman. :)

Side: Yes.

Well said.

Plus, people who are pro life are anti choice. :)

I suppose by that logic we could say that people who are pro choice are anti life?

No, people who are pro choice/pro abortion will still allow you to have the baby if you want. Whereas, the pro life/anti abortion people will not let you have a choice.

How is this a debate? The term isn't debated, it's well known the term is used for pro-abortion persons.

Maybe I should check out some of the opposing arguments before jumping to conclusions though xD

Side: Yes.
