Ask Them What They Mean By “Choice” Day 2013

565600_10200344040269360_2012432767_nUPDATE 1/24, 10:30a: Thanks to all who participated, whether by the many great posts I read on your blogs (links below), or on Facebook, or on Twitter (where the conversation at #Tweet4Choice is still going strong!).

I think our effort this year was particularly impactful given the dust up in the pro-abortion community over the word “choice.”

Thanks again for doing such a great job pushing back on their euphemismistic cover-up of preborn murder.

1/21, 3:10p: In response to NARAL’s Blog for Choice Day, we are sponsoring our third annual Ask Them What They Mean When They Say “Choice” Day – tomorrow.

All online pro-lifers are invited to join in!

Read backstory here.

This year we are expanding beyond bloggers to the online pro-life community at large – you!

Click to join the event on Facebook here.

By doing so you will become part of a pro-life contingent that will challenge abortion supporters tomorrow, January 22, whenever and wherever we see them use the word “choice” online.

If on Twitter, use the hashtag #Tweet4Choice for all tweets tomorrow, which NARAL has designated for its Blog for Choice Day, the impetus for our day.

Thanks to Planned Parenthood we have added fodder for discussion tomorrow. Almost two weeks ago PP announced it was abandoning the term, “pro-choice.” You might want to ask “choice” advocates about that.

Thanks to bloggers who have signed up to blog on what “choice” really means tomorrow. So far they include:

Final Update: Ask Them What They Mean by “Choice” Day

UPDATE 1/30, 7:12a: We blindsided and overwhelmed NARAL last year with our “Ask Them What They Mean by ‘Choice'” Day, but this year the group was more prepared. They signed up 1/3 more blogs to participate and tried to keep up with our counter-tweets. 

But we forced them to think about what “choice” really stands for, whether they wanted to or not. And NARAL will never ever again be able to euphemistically celebrate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade online unanswered.

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank noted NARAL’s “Blog for Choice Day” in his list of “carnivals” surrounding the terrible anniversary.

Thanks to all who blogged, tweeted, and Facebooked their groups to remind them what “pro-choice” actually means.

Today! “Ask Them What They Mean By ‘Choice’” Blog Day

FINAL UPDATE, 1/24, 5:30a: I continued to receive requests to participate in our “Ask Them What They Mean By ‘Choice'” Blog Day from pro-lifers even as the day ended. I have updated the list to showcase the 111 pro-life bloggers who used January 21 to expose “choice” as the code word for killing preborn innocence children with only 2-1/2 days notice.

NARAL posted its list of 90 participants for its “Blog for Choice” Day that morning, fewer than ours with much more notice.

And, as previously discussed, we completely overwhelmed the pro-aborts on Twitter.

This was quite a positive learning experience for me, and I have used the example of what you accomplished by this endeavor many times the past couple days here in Washington when discussing online pro-life activism with friends and colleagues.

Perhaps liberals owned social media back in the day but no more, that’s for sure. I think this was definitely an indicator that pro-lifers have come into our own for online advocacy of the sanctity of preborn human life.
