Someone who either removes or supports the removal of the ability of an individual’s right to make choices through laws, coercion or murder.
Note: A common misconception is that those who call themselves “pro-life” are “anti-choice”: most pro-lifers are Christian and as a result believe in free will, or the freedom of an individual to make their own choices; for example to have an abortion, rob a bank, commit murder, or have sex when one is not ready to have children. However, pro-lifers largely believe that although one is free to make any choice, one should be held accountable for one's actions, especially if it hurts another human being. Furthermore, it is a pro-lifer’s belief that they should protect the rights and future choice making ability of others, especially those who cannot speak for themselves e.g.unborn persons.
Hitler was anti-choice; he removed choice making abilities of many through coercion and murder.
The rapist was anti-choice; he removed my choice to have sex with him because he forced himself upon me.
My biological mother was pro-life and not anti-choice: she gave me up for adoption instead of having an abortion, thereby allowing me to have the ability to make choices and choose what to do with my life.
