"No one is pro root canal"

Tom puts the big Dominican kibosh on the idiotic claim that no one is pro-abortion. Excerpt:
No, what they think seems to be that no one [practicing abortionists, for some reason, excepted] actively desires anyone to be in a position where they would choose to get an abortion. They mean it, in other words, in the same sense that they might mean “no one is pro-root canal.”
But this reduces to the singularly uninteresting observation that no one is pro-nuisance. And we note the empirical fact that, given the nuisance of an unwanted pregnancy, tens of millions of Americans want to be able to abort the child.
