The use of the term "anti-abortion" has a negative connotation, compared to the terms pro-adoption and pro-life. Your paper uses the pro-choice title for pro-abortion groups, so why use the anti-abortion label, which is demeaning, for pro-life groups? By using pro-adoption and pro-life, people are offering a positive action, not a negative one.
