I define myself as pro-life because I am pro-life for all people – not just the ones whose existence relies exclusively on the generosity of a host uterus. And that means I need to value the lives of women. All women. Including those who make a choice that I couldn’t possibly imagine making myself, because my own lived experience is one supremely inconsequential part of the picture and doesn’t give me any right to interfere with – or to judge - other people’s choices. But you can’t make abortion “unthinkable” by banning access to it. Banning access to safe, legal abortion doesn’t make abortion “unthinkable.” It just drives it underground and makes it dangerous, thus jeopardizing the lives of not just the fetuses it purports to protect but also those of desperate women driven to desperate measures. If you want to make abortion “unthinkable,” then start by making it unnecessary.

They call themselves "pro-life" because it sure sounds good, but they don't actually appear to value actual life (and many even want to put women to death for having a miscarriage or abortion, hardly a "pro-life" perspective!!) They are actually "pro-control-of-people-with-uteruses."
