Death Sentence

Okay, so it's not okay to kill a foetus, but it's okay to kill a person. That's what the "moral Christian" anti-abortionists believe. We get that.*

Thank goodness for islands of sanity in this battle over a woman's right to control over her own body.

No, rather, pro-lifers are in favour of fetal rights. We are pro-unborn child. And not all of us favour the death penalty.

Shrug. It's not a child. It's a foetus.

Nor is it a "partial-birth abortion" which is practically an oxymoron. It's a "late-term abortion" and it's done in cases of extreme need when the mother's life is in danger or the foetus is no longer viable.

If you want to be "pro life" try being "pro" the life of someone who's already born. There are plenty of beaten, abused, starved, neglected infants, toddlers, children, women, and men in this country who need advocates.

Use that "pro life" energy to do some good, instead of victimizing and passing judgment on women whose lives you know nothing about.
