For example, an anti-choice person responded to my tweet from my personal profile two weeks ago, and said I don’t seem to care that babies are being killed. I decided not to respond, because I did not want a fight, and was also not willing to engage with opposition from my personal profile Is this the best response? How else could I have tackled this? Using this can we come up with ideas for tackling anti-choice messages?
