The South Was Just Pro Choice

I saw a post today about whether or not the Civil War was a battle over slavery.

Now, I believe that the South was fighting the Civil War to preserve slavery. They were pro-slavery. That's why we had the horrific American Civil War.

But what if we look at it this way: The South wasn't pro-slavery: they were pro-choice. They wanted the right to choose whether or not they kept slaves. And they told opponents - "Don't approve of slavery? Don't have any."

And how would that make them any different than pro-abortion people who label themselves pro choice?

The label and the choice don't make the underlying activity, be it keeping slaves or killing babies in the womb, any more justifiable.
