imageIn the wake of the huge pro-life victory in Texas, Think Progress has posted five ways abortion proponents are “fighting back.”

Most were all predictable: Challenge pro-life laws in court, continue protests in Texas and spread them to other states, and register pro-abortion voters.

But one was not: “Challeng[e] ideas about what it means to be ‘pro-life.'” Examples given were to push comprehensive sex ed and promote opposition to the death penalty as a pro-life issue.

Now, I know the other side has been attempting to muddy the lines between the “pro-life” and “pro-choice” terminology, in part to explain away the strengthening pro-life polls.

But this as a strategy struck me as playing into pro-life hands. It is the equivalent of our side trying to widen the definition of “pro-choice,” which in theory would seem to me to potentially bring more into the “pro-choice” fold.

But perhaps I’m not getting it? Your thoughts?
