I see what they are trying to convey, but there is most definitely an aspect of "difficult" involved. I would also agree that there are better ways to frame the situation when it comes to keeping the anti-choice community at bay.
I cannot imagine what some women go through emotionally with a decision to abort a pregnancy. I said some women because I don't believe all women have the same reaction. As with most human conditions, it is never a simple binary thing. There is always a scale that leaves room for everything between the two absolutes.
