Controlling language? The term "pro-life" clouds the issue, doesn't it? Are they advocating for all life? Soldiers? Terrorists? Sea life? I've met more than one pro-lifer in my time who decidedly favors the death penalty. Putting the word "abortion" right in there narrows it and de-politicizes it as much as it can be narrowed and de-politicized. And one side is in favor of abortion rights while the other opposes it. Harping on the whole "anti makes it sound bad" thing is dumb. I'm "anti-genocide." Does that sound bad? Do I have to say I'm "pro-genolife" in order to convey that meaning clearly? Your whole argument seems to assume that you don't think people know what the word "abortion" means.
