Duty or Choice?

Rethinking word usage just might make a huge difference when talking about weighty matters like life and liberty. Mike Metzger says that political speeches used to be filled with the word "duty," and the word "choice" was rarely used. It seems that American evangelicals helped regulate "duty" to the closet and have helped further the pro-abortion campaign by embracing the word "choice."

Actually Evangelicals use the word "responsibility" a lot in contexts in which it means a fair approximation to "duty". However "duty" does roll off the tongue a bit better.
