Yes, people can try to impose standards onto others. I do it quite the bit. In WW2 though, we used force to impose those standards. In countries that legalize abortion, you cannot use the force of the State to force the woman to follow your line of morality. Hence the reason you are better off speaking to your sexual partners about this issue if you really believe that it is murder.
I think I get your point though. If a fetus is truly alive, shouldn't we have the moral responsibility to impose our higher standards of morality onto others? If you honestly believe that, yes, I suppose. Hence the rather brutal tactics used by the Pro-Life group at times.
Hence the discussion on what constitutes life, I suppose.

Its called pro-choice because its easier to market than "pro-murder". That doesn't change what it is, it only makes it more palatable for those who would rather not think about the underlying issue.
