Andrea Mitchell Corrects Guest Who Called Herself "Pro-Life": "Anti-Abortion Is More Value-Neutral"

I refuse then to be "value neutral." I am pro-life. Since when is life a "value?" Is "pro-abortion" value neutral? Does that mean that death is NOT a value? Very interesting.

And by spinning an argument to ones own interpretation of "value neutral" does that change the facts at all? Is parsing words and meaning the same as lying? or is "value neutral?"

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."
