Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice

Generally, people who identify as pro-choice believe that everyone has the basic human right to lớn decide when và whether to have children. When you say you’re pro-choice you’re telling people that you believe it’s OK for them to have sầu the ability to choose abortion as an option for an unplanned pregnancy — even if you wouldn’t choose abortion for yourself.

People who oppose abortion often gọi themselves pro-life. However, the only life many of them are concerned with is the life of the fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus. They are much less concerned about the life of women who have unintended pregnancies or the welfare of children after they’re born. In fact, many people who Hotline themselves “pro-life” support capital punishment (AKA the death penalty) & oppose child welfare legislation.

The black-and-trắng labels of “pro-life” và “pro-choice” pit people against each other, as if they’re on two different teams. But we agree more than we disagree: A majority of Americans believe sầu abortion should be legal, và they tư vấn the right lớn access abortion.

We Say “Pro-Reproductive Rights” và “Anti-Abortion”

To be more clear and inclusive with our word choices, we at Planned Parenthood say “pro-reproductive sầu rights” và “anti-abortion” lớn describe people’s beliefs about abortion access. The pro-reproductive rights & anti-abortion labels leave room for a variety of beliefs, while focusing on access to abortion specifically. “Accessing” abortion means having the ability to lớn afford it, physically get to lớn an abortion provider, và other factors that allow you to exercise your right khổng lồ abortion care.

Pro-Reproductive Rights

When you say that you support reproductive sầu rights, that means you support laws that allow people khổng lồ access the full range of reproductive health care —including safe, legal abortion.

Pro-reproductive rights folks oppose laws that ban abortion, as well as laws that keep abortion out of reach —like laws that shut down health centers or that force patients khổng lồ jump through hoops to lớn get the care they need.


Using the term “anti-abortion” is a more accurate way to describe people who want abortion khổng lồ be illegal. Many anti-abortion people don’t believe that pregnant people should be able to lớn choose abortion under any circumstances, even if their pregnancy is a result of rape or if carrying the pregnancy khổng lồ term puts their life in danger.

Anti-abortion people tover to:

Disagree with most medical authorities about the definition of pregnancy. They mistakenly believe sầu that pregnancy begins with the fertilization of the egg. Most authorities believe sầu that pregnancy begins when the implantation of the fertilized egg inkhổng lồ the lining of the uterus is complete.

They believe sầu that people should not be allowed to lớn use birth control.They want to overturn the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. In that decision, the court ruled that a woman’s right to lớn choose abortion is protected by the Constitution và that abortion is legal throughout the United States.

The Bottom Line

Decisions about whether lớn choose adoption, over a pregnancy, or continue a pregnancy should be made by a pregnant person with the counsel of their family, their faith, and their health care provider. Politicians should not be involved in anyone’s personal medical decisions about their reproductive sầu health or pregnancy.
