We must change the language around abortion and acknowledge that safe and legal abortions are critical to women’s health and reproductive rights. For this reason, I prefer to say I am pro-abortion.
Being pro-abortion does not mean I advocate for everyone getting abortions. A good analogy is being pro-chemotherapy. I do not advocate for indiscriminate use of chemotherapy on patients, but I believe it should be fully accessible when it is necessary as a medical procedure. In the same way I support chemotherapy for cancer patients, I support abortions for those seeking them.
