I guess I would just like to know why women think that the pro-life movement takes away their choice at all. Are all abortions the product of rape? I believe that number is around 5% or so. Don't women have enough respect for themselves and smarts to decide whether or not to engage in sexual activities that will get them pregnant, or are they immune from the consequences of that choice as well? Did the feminist moment ever occur or are women still victims of all sex?
The pro-life position for me contends that life is sacrosanct. When we as a society believe in justification for any murder, it chews away at our moral fiber. We wonder why kids have become numb to violence and we see things like the shootings at Newtown and we're surprised? We want our government to protect our liberty, but it undermines itself by not protecting life (abortion, drone killings, capital punishment), the most essential liberty there is.
The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants
