Public Radio Station Bars Use Of Phrase ‘Reproductive Rights’

Fearing it might be seen as, heaven forbid, a euphemism for abortion, it has been replaced with 'reproductive health.'

An Ipas’ vice president pointed out the two are quite different:

"'Reproductive rights' is not a euphemism for abortion," Kumar said. "Among other things, it means the right to infertility treatments, the right to contraception, the right to information, the right to live free of rape and violence. In global forums, those meanings are universally understood. And 'reproductive health' doesn't convey all of that. It's important to say that our work is about rights as well as health."

In our society based on values, who would not want to secure these rights for women? And this isn't even on some privately owned entity. This is public radio, folks.
