Dunleavy also noted that Planned Parenthood made a similar insistence in 2021 under a post titled “What’s wrong with choice?: Why we need to go beyond choice language when we’re talking about abortion.”
“Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund in 2021: ‘It’s time to retire the phrase ‘pro-choice, not pro-abortion’ for good. … So what can someone say instead of just ‘pro-choice’? You can absolutely say pro-abortion…’” Dunleavy tweeted.
Planned Parenthood also explained, “The language of ‘choice’ centers one person’s decision to get an abortion or not; a choice is something one person makes. Focusing on someone’s “choice” erases the structural, societal factors that determine how and if someone can get health care, and the quality of that care. These factors are not incidental or insignificant: they leave many people with no choices at all.”
