This past Friday, Raine and I went to see Lizz Winstead as she brought her Lady Parts Justice
program to the Black Cat in DC. It's a serious look at the anti-abortion movement, wrapped in comedy and a little pathos. Eight women came to the stage and described their abortion experience, destroying the pre-conceived notions that the anti-abortion crusaders wish to sell to advance their horrible agenda.
Part of the underlying message, perhaps not overtly spelled out, is that controlling the message is important. We're not "pro-abortion", we're pro-choice and pro-women's health, and pro-women's autonomy over their own bodies. They are not "pro-life", they are anti-choice. The Lady Parts Justice team kept referring to them as "anti-s", which I think should be the norm for everyone going forward. I will never refer to them as pro-lifers again.
