On The Issue of Abortion:

Abortion remains one of the more divisive moral issues in America today. The controversy over its legal and moral status rages on. Several labels have been invented to define the variety of stances available on the issue. Pro-Life is often synonymous with Anti-Abortion, and related partially to Anti-Choice. Pro-Choice is often assumed to be synonymous with Pro-Abortion, and by opponents, with Anti-Life. More often than not it is assumed that the pro-life/anti-abortion stance is rooted in religious belief and that the secular community shares a support for the pro-choice movement. We have found, however, that this is not so. A pro-life/anti-abortion stance does exist among secularists without its source or inspiration being found rooted in religious belief. Whether a secular case can be made against abortion is the topic of this debate.
