About fifteen years ago, Action aired a campaign of television advertisements about abortion. One advertisement featured a woman explaining that she used to be ‘pro-choice’ but in examining the topic, she began to ask questions. She said “Why is it a baby when you want it but something else when you don’t? Think about it.”
Language has always played a prominent role in the debate. Abortion advocates will refer to the unborn child as the product of conception, a clump of cells and tissue making it seem as if this child is not human. The health warning on this cigarette package shows the undeniable reality, if you’re pregnant, it’s a baby. Ask Health Canada.
