    Is "pro-abortionists" typical terminology in the UK, especially in the Guardian?

    I think he is about as self aware as an Apple IIe.

    This guy shouldn't go to jail for killing someone. He should go to jail because he's an idiot.

    If that's a jail-able offense, we're going to need to build a lot more prisons.

    It sounds a bit dodgy - pro-choice would probably be better.

    But as virtually everyone is pro-choice over here maybe they weren't sure on which word to use.

    Lock him up and throw away the key.

    And give him a big, strong, horny cellmate. Make him somebody's bitch.

    Terminology varies by source, pro-abortionists appears a fair few times on the guardian website. Of course so does the phrase anti-abortionists as exemplified by the above article.

    Googlefight! Googlefight!

    Looks like the Guardian says Pro-Choice far more often.

    Scott Roeder should be put in jail for the rest of his life. What he did was disgusting, immoral, and against God, natural law, or whatever you want to call it.

    George Tiller should have been put in jail for the rest of his life. What he did each and every day was disgusting, immoral, and against God, natural law, or whatever you want to call it.

    I agree with Scott Roeder, two wrongs does not equal a right. He should have taken his own advice... and fought tooth and nail to prevent the murders of innocent babies from continuing to take place, without taking the law into his own hands.

    You don't consider what George Tiller to be murder? Look up some descriptive procedures of late-term abortions and then tell me what you think. Disgusting.

    What George Tiller did was legal. And that's the only thing that determines if someone goes to jail. Not if it's disgusting, immoral, against god or natural law because we all have different opinions on that. But the law is the law and George Tiller never broke it.

    No. And neither does the law in most first world countries or indeed medical boards.

    Late term abortions are indeed horrific but unfortunately necessary in some medically indicated cases. Seeing you know so much on the issue perhaps you could fill us in on when late-term abortions are carried and and under what criteria. As you've presented it it's almost as if your trying to claim that elective late-term abortions are regularly carried out at abortion clinics which would most certainly be erroneous.

    His defence lawyer asked: "Did you go and shoot Dr Tiller?"

    Roeder replied: "Yes."

    This used to be a lot easier:

    Anyone can call themselves pro-life but the term is often misused. Anti-abortion is usually more apt.

    What do you guys mean by a late-term abortion? I'd say over 22 weeks or something, but Wikipedia seems to be saying over 16 weeks or even 13 weeks counts as "late" - even though the foetus isn't viable outside the mother at that stage.
