I definitely think there are problems with the term ‘pro-choice,’ and have read some good critiques of it.

Just went to Project Vote Smart & was dismayed to find that the anti-choice candidate for the US House in my district called himself ”pro-choice” on their survey, even though he: favors an amendment to the US Constitution that would confer full personhood on a fetus from the moment of conception or an act of Congress to accomplish the same, thinks abortion should only be legal in the 1st trimester, and doesn’t support federal funding.
EEK! The incumbent is ACTUALLY pro-choice, and always stands up for women’s health & women’s rights. Hate to see a website allow candidates to publish misleading information.
