Redirect[edit]

I've changed the redirect of this page to pro-choice. I have also redirected anti-choice to pro-life. I believe this balances any NPOV concerns. Neitherday 21:35, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Page should stay a dab, not a redirect, as implied by consensus at pro-death discussion. JJB 08:39, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Analysis[edit]

Bkonrad has now removed all but six entries and left the cleanup tag live, with the only substantive discussion being "remove entried not supported by the linked articles and unambiguous entries and partial title matches". This is rather sudden and probably over-deletionist because a similar ax was taken to "pro-death" contrary to DRV unanimous consensus. I have invited WP:WPDAB to comment on whether individual entries in this diff should be in or out, as well as what the primary topic should be. Further, this page should be more inclusionist because of the greater need to dab the pejorative from other uses. Feel free to comment separately by bullet. Naturally it's not necessary for the article to use the "anti-" version if it's clearly about "life" and sources do use "anti-life" as an adjective for the article's topic.

  • Primary topic:
"Antagonistic or antithetical to normal human values", per Merriam-Webster indicating this usage goes back to 1929. I have split this primary four ways to indicate variations of it, as a typical exception when the primary topic needs a subdab anyway.
Keep, appears elsewhere in WP with this use. JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Keep, clearest match to the dicdef usage since 1929. Recommended that the primary topic be split for simpler organization rather than make "misanthropy" the primary. JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Neutral, this partial title match doesn't seem as necessary as it originally did. (Creating this redirect now anyway.) JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Keep with or without link. I thought it fitting to add a link to this line for clarification even though it's a subhead not a dab line, but what do you think? Also abortion-rights should be an adjective rather than a noun ("persons"). JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Strong keep, clearly established pejorative use. JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Keep, mentioned in article. JJB 00:54, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
