Logical Syllogisms of the Day

Raise your hand if you're pro-life!
"Pro-choicers" claim that they don't favor killing babies. They can only make that claim because they never finish the sentence: I am pro-choice when it comes to a mother choosing... (to kill her unborn baby if she wishes.) Now if someone claimed to be pro-choice about rape (I would never rape, but I can't impose my anti-rape morality on anybody else.) people would be outraged. How dare anybody favor that violation of women. But somehow, violating an innocent, helpless baby fits the morality of many. Very sad and a clear demonstration of the manipulation of words to hide the truth. But here are a few logical syllogisms to reflect on. It really isn't that complicated once you define terms. Pro-choicers themselves have defined it as "a woman's right to choose" between having an abortion or not. Since they favor whichever decision the woman makes (they say) they do, by definition, favor abortion. And now for the logic:
All pro-choicers favor the right of a woman to choose an abortion if she wishes.
(Name) is pro-choice.
Therefore (Name) favors the right of a woman to choose an abortion if she wishes. 
Abortion kills a  baby.
(Name) had an abortion.
(Name) killed a baby. 
All pro-choicers favor the right of a woman to choose to kill her baby if she wishes.
(Name) is pro-choice.
Therefore (Name) favors the right of a woman to choose to kill her baby if she wishes. 
Killing babies is morally evil.
Abortion kills babies.
Therefore, abortion is morally evil.
