President Joe Biden’s sister Valerie Biden Owens said in her upcoming book that the pro-choice viewpoint should instead have been referred to as pro-life.

While pro-life advocates point out that an abortion kills an unborn baby, pro-choice advocates contend that women should have the option to terminate pregnancies. But in “Growing Up Biden: A Memoir,” Owens turns reality on its head by suggesting that the pro-choice view is actually pro-life.

“Like many women, I harbored complicated feelings on the topic,” Owens wrote, according to Fox News. “I’m pro-choice, but I remain convinced that Democrats chose the wrong term for our side of the issue.”

“We should have been pro-life, for we are the ones advocating for a better life, a life in which a mother gets to determine her future and that of her child,” Owens wrote, according to the outlet. “Sometimes, I even accidentally say I’m pro-life, because that’s what it feels like the pro-choice position should have been called.”

A Wall Street Journal poll of registered voters found that while 48% would favor a law prohibiting abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy with exceptions permitted for the pregnant woman’s health, 43% would be against such an abortion restriction. While 31% strongly backed the idea of such a restriction, 17% somewhat supported the concept, 10% somewhat against it, and 34% strongly opposed it.

While just 21% of Democrats were in favor of prohibiting abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, a whopping 75% of Republicans supported the idea.

The survey found that just 11% thought that abortion should be unlawful in all cases, while 30% thought it should be unlawful except when pregnancies result from rape or incest or when a pregnant woman’s life is at risk — 55% indicated that they wanted abortion to be lawful in all or most situations.

The issue of abortion remains a topic of cultural debate — while conservatives in red states push legislation to defend the unborn, abortion proponents oppose those efforts.
