Does Pro-Life Really Mean Pro-Life?

… or does Pro-Life mean Anti-abortion?

Again, I am having a hard time keeping this blog apolitical, especially now, in this fierce season of “red meat rhetoric” and candidate-baiting.

But when we support putting our troops in harm’s way, figuring that a certain number of deaths is considered an acceptable level of collateral damage, that is not Pro-Life.

When we support inmates being put to death, that is not Pro-Life.

As with most things in this world, this issue is filled with shades of gray. Abortion is bad except when… Capital Punishment is bad except when… War is bad except when…

My point is: don’t say you’re Pro-Life if what you really are is Anti-Abortion.

That’s a completely different issue.

Let’s not confuse them.
