There are people
who consider themselves pro-life. They are eager to stand and scream in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic (harassing women going in for Pap smears but not actually stopping
even one abortion). However, they don't seem the least bit interested
in opposing war or capital punishment
(which would really save lives).
seem uninterested in addressing
rape, incest, poverty, economic and social injustice, lack
of access to adequate
of access to adequate health
care, or sexual ignorance
-- all of which are factors that drive the rate of abortion.
This leads outside observers to the conclusion that such people
are more interested
in being seen to be publicly
righteous than in actually furthering the values they claim to uphold. I tell you, they have their reward.
"You hear Ms. Catholic over there
calling for that guy to be executed?" -- "Yeah, she's totally
pseudo pro-life. Consistent ethic of life, my ass."
