Pro-choice is the position which advocates the existence of a woman's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion. Pro-choice can also be a position of support of a person's right to choose whether or not to end his or her life by euthanasia or assisted suicide[1] and other social ethic issues concerned with ones personal autonomy.[2] The term is most often used to emphasize a position of bodily integrity, individual sovereignty and self-determination, particularly on issues of public policy, law, political controversies and medical ethics.[3]
