    Pros and cons are arguments "for" and "against" a particular issue. The origin of the expression is associated with the latin term "pro et contra" ("pro" meaning "for" and "contra" meaning "against"). So, the expression "pro" isn't related to "progress" here. Therefore, "con" isn't the root of the opposite word of "progress."

    Otherwise, progress has many antonyms such as decline, retreat, retrogression, etc.
