Axios Attempts To Rebrand Abortion As 'Reproductive Freedom'

Axios is at it again with its pro-abortion rhetoric. 

According to Axios, the pro-abortion movement is attempting to rebrand abortion-related vocabulary in a way that paints pro-lifers as controlling tyrants, with pro-choicers as superior side. The outlet claims the decades-old terms of “pro-life” and “pro-choice” just aren’t “nuanced enough to describe policy positions after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year.” 

Axios insisted that those who support abortion embrace "reproductive freedom" while those who believe in the sanctity of life (us pro-lifers) apparently don’t. What’s ironic is that pro-lifers do support everyone’s freedom to reproduce. If people want to have unprotected sex, then they’re of course welcome to do that. But the issue lies with after they've already reproduced. At that point, “reproductive freedom” has already been exercised, and thus, if a child is conceived, that’s the result of reproductive freedom. Killing a child is where pro-lifers have an issue, not about your choice to have sex.

Even still, Axois tries to split hairs in order to nix the old terms and adopt this new, pro-abort framing.

“Advocates say a hard-to-track and constantly changing patchwork of restrictions and bans means the old labels — are you for ‘choice’ or ‘life’ — no longer apply. The spectrum now includes varied views on weeks of pregnancy and exceptions in the cases of rape, incest and the health of the pregnant person,” the article said. 

Axios brought up how groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America rebranded last month to "Reproductive Freedom For All." But again, abortion and reproducing are not the same thing. The latter is the act of creating new life, while the former is the act of ending it. 

According to an email sent Axios’ subscribers, a polling memo for One Nation by Axios Research indicated the following: 

[T]he most universally persuasive messaging on abortion includes an acknowledgment that this debate is about more than just abortion. Acknowledging that this is also about needing a better safety net to support young families and mothers, like better access, an easier adoption process and more affordable childcare, is a very strong message

Women and children do need a safety net. Yes. But that safety net starts with conversations about why it’s important to have sex within the bounds of marriage, and what safe sex is. Changing the vocab to be “pro-reproductive freedom” and “anti-reproductive freedom,” or whatever the heck the pro-aborts decide, is just a way of manipulating the public into thinking that abortion is something that women have a right to do.

I can assure you, they don’t.
