Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Do they use pro-choice? I'm reasonably sure that it's common for the anti-abortion side to use other terms.

Not always: The Alive and Kicking Campaign - Abortion Petition. (Though the petition itself seems a little bizarre in its notions.)

Besides, even if they were to use a term such as 'pro-abortion' or 'baby-killer' for me, I would still expect them to pose an argument or reason for their stance against abortion. The same rules go for the pro-choice side, that the name used against them is unimportant, it's the arguments which matter.

Had I not used 'pro-life' to describe them, I can still imagine having this debate. There doesn't seem an acceptable way around naming your political opponents (could make a good diary that).
