I think you're on to something with leftists always being "pro" and people with traditional or conservative values always being labeled "anti."

Obviously. It's been a linguistic gimmick they've used for years, and with 98% of the media fully on board, it's pretty successful. By the way, the opposite of pro-life is pro-death, or anti-life - but again, that's far too accurate of a description to ever see the light of day.

My (rhetorical) question is this: Why would a pro-abortion--or, "pro-choice" if you're looking for something more value neutral--advocate like Andrea Mitchell want the issue of life and death to be "value-neutral"?

Here's a little nugget I came across today from Pastor John MacArthur: "They keep saying, 'A school is supposed to be a safe place!' Yeah well so is a womb."
