Pet Peeve

What is up with well-meaning people abusing the term Pro-life? Recent actual examples:
"What do you think of Pro-life?"
"Pro-life is so important."
"I need to do something about Pro-life."

"Pro-life" is an adjective people- possibly an adverb - but it is not a noun. There is no big Pro-life walking around out there. It is not a person, place or thing. It is a description of a set of ideas, beliefs, truths - a description. An adjective.

Phew. I just had to get that off my chest. It's been bothering me for about 8 months.
