Blow's New Euphemism for Abortion: 'A Full Range of Reproductive Options for Women'

By Mark Finkelstein | February 1, 2014

The reluctance of abortion-rights advocates to call the procedure by its name, and their preference for euphemism, is legend.

To the euphemistic lexicon of "pro-choice," "women's health," "reproductive freedom," etc. ad nauseum, Charles Blow has made the latest contribution.  His New York Times column of today speaks of Republican candidates opposing "a full range of reproductive options for women."


What does such squeamishness say about the way abortion-rights advocates sense the public largely feels about abortion . . . or how in their heart of hearts some feel about it themselves?
 

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
