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).
They also seem uninterested in addressing rape, incest, poverty, economic and social injustice, lack of access to adequate nutrition, lack 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."
