Apparently, We Need To Remind People That Pro-Choice Women Are Allowed To Have Babies

Chelsea Clinton is pregnant, and some anti-abortion activists responded to the news Thursday by showing they don't understand what being "pro-choice" means: being able to choose to have a baby, or not.
Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child "later this year."
LifeNews didn't seem to understand Thursday how a woman who supports a person's decision to not have children could be excited about her pregnancy:
Abortion supporter Chelsea Clinton announced today that she’s pregnant — not with a fetus or clump of cells but with a “child.”
This is the same Chelsea Clinton who lamented last year that her grandmother didn’t have access to Planned Parenthood.
Responses on Twitter were in the same vein.

I love days like this when everyone recognizes a baby is a baby and not a fetus.

How far along is Chelsea? Is it still a clump of cells?

Waiting on @PPact to congratulate Chelsea Clinton on her "products of conception." When is the "uterine contents" shower? #prolife
Alert!! @ChelseaClinton is harboring a lifeless clump of cells that she may choose to recognize as a person later!!! #awww
