The pro-abortion view supports how roughly one million abortions are performed annually in the United States, many at taxpayer expense. "Pro-aborts" are those who are comfortable with this status quo and who oppose pro-life criticism of it or reform legislation to reduce it. Many pro-aborts even seek to increase the number of abortions performed in the United States, and worldwide.

Pro-aborts often prefer the euphemism "pro-choice" as a way of denying their support, explicit or implicit, for abortion at public expense. "Pro-choice" is a misnomer because the child does not have a choice and pro-aborts typically oppose any choice for the father also. Pro-aborts often oppose any choice by pro-life physicians, nurses or pharmacists.

Pro-aborts also typically oppose ensuring that women have information about the medical harms, such as increases suicide rates, that result from abortion. So "pro-choice" opposes "informed choice."

Planned Parenthood is closely aligned with the pro-abortion side: it performed nearly 135 abortions for every referral for adoption in 2008.[1]

Pro-aborts have caused abortion to be higher in the United States than in comparable European nations. For example, the laws concerning abortion are far more protective of the unborn child in Germany and in Israel than in the United States.
