Pro-life?


I've always been confused by those on the conservative end of the political spectrum who claim to be "pro-life" but have no problem shipping young men off to risk their lives in a pointless war. Or failing to help dying victims of hurricanes. Or denying health coverage to the poor and sick. Or refusing funding for stem-cell research that could potentially save thousands of lives. Or just basically continuing their dismal streak of ignoring the poor, needy, struggling families in our country.

Is a woman's choice about the best path for her life in the event of an unplanned pregnancy really more important to people than the rest of these issues?

Face it, conservatives. You're NOT pro-life; you're anti-choice. You want to deny women their right to choose by making their decisions for them. Because in nearly every other case regarding people's lives, life seems to matter very little to you.

  1. I'm always amused by people who are against abortion and against euthanasia (life is sacred!)... yet whole-heartedly support the death penalty...
