Is the word abortion misconstrued?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, it’s a royal baby boy, ‘Little thing is to die for,’ Prince Harry says, reports his opinion, “ How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension,” made after the birth of his son.

The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. (Proverb 10:20 KJV)

What’s My Point?

Is Prince Harry’s statement, “to die for,” misconstrued about the birth of a baby when compared to abortion definition?

In My Opinion

The definition of abortion is misconstrued about the meaning of “what to die for.”

Was Prince Harry’s other opinion also misconstrued, “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.”   

Birth or abortion, “choice silver?”
