Political Framing

I am completely against war and the death penalty. I am not against the killing of animals, though. That's like saying you aren't pro-gun unless you want to give assault rifles to baboons. By your logic, even vegetarians aren't pro-life because they support the killing of plants.

I use "pro-life" to refer to the Consistent Ethic of Life (look it up). "Pro-life" means supporting the right to live.

"Pro-choice" is plain political framing. The right to choose what?
If it's to choose to steal, I'm anti-choice.
If it's to choose your outfit, I'm pro-choice.
