The only thing funnier than watching the Women’s March Twitter account get roasted for posting that they are “pro-abortion” is the fact that a lot of the backlash they are getting is coming from the left.
Harken back, if you will, to the days shortly after the Supreme Court leak that indicated the Dobbs opinion would overturn Roe v Wade. Liberals far and wide tried to convince conservatives that nobody is “pro-abortion,” they just want people to have the choice to get one if they want.
Nobody is pro-abortion. They are pro-it’s-none-of-your-business.

Nobody is pro-abortion. It’s not like people want more abortions. That’s just more gaslighting from the right. As they also are gainer sex Ed and contraception. Insane

I don’t like abortion either. Nobody is pro-abortion, and everyone would like to see the number of abortions reduced. Why can’t we all just work toward a society in which abortion is no longer necessary? I’m pro-Quality of Life.

The left pushed the idea that they didn’t like abortion, but it’s a necessary evil and also none of anyone’s business.
That is, until whoever runs the Women’s March Twitter account decided that it was time to take the mask off:
We’re not just pro-choice.
We are proudly, unapologetically pro-abortion.
RT if you agree.

While the message itself was undoubtedly designed to rally their base and irk conservatives, much of the blowback they have received from this tweet was from the left side of the aisle. Liberals bashed the account for giving the right a way to bolster the argument for increased restrictions on abortion services.
I know that I’m likely to get jumped for this opinion, but this goes too far.
Abortion isn’t a good thing. It’s a medical necessity borne of tragedy. That tragedy takes many personal forms that are no one’s business but ours, but no one is glad to need a medical procedure.

I’m 100% pro choice but far from unapologetically proudly abortion. This claim feels so ignorant to the women who have had to make this deeply personal and often painful choice. For those it was not political.

I can’t agree. The fact that so many need or want abortions is the core of the issue and if that were addressed, this would not be a thing.

I’m Pro choice but also pro “please try and find any other way but this if you can”

Can’t be “pro” a medical procedure that may be wanted or unwanted, needed or not
There is no unconditional, divorced from context, support for anything really

Tone deaf and insensitive statement.
Choice is important, but how can you be proudly pro the termination of pregnancies?
I had to terminate a pregnancy because of foetal anomalies so severe the baby couldn’t survive. It was a choice, but not one I wanted.
— Lotte (@LethalLottie) September 30, 2022
It’s this sort of tweet that gives pro-choice a bad name. No woman wants an abortion just for “fun”! They have one because their circumstances at the time don’t allow for a pregnancy, whether it be medical, rape, incest, financially insecure, or other justifiable reason for one.

I’m pro-choice and always have been. Being “pro-abortion” is not something I consider admirable. It’s kind of disgusting, in fact.
— Hot Tub Rabbits (@QSCaepio) September 29, 2022
No, I’m pro-choice. Not pro-abortion.
