Pro-Choice author: Question of whether abortion is murder is “risky”

Pro-choice author Miriam Claire wrote:

“Somehow, the key issue is not being addressed [by the pro-choice movement] and is “off the page,” because the question of whether abortion is murder is risky and unanswerable in an absolute sense.”

A few pages later, though, she answers the question. She wrote:

“When you choose to have an abortion, you are responsible for a decision to halt the development of a human life. That is the most significant difference between abortion and miscarriage. It is somehow easier to accept “fate” or “the will of nature,” than it is to accept responsibility for our actions.”

Perhaps “halt the development” is an easier thing to say than “kill.”
