This is so true and a brilliant rebuttal to most pro-life arguments.

yea, that's a very strong caption.  the sister seems a critic of the catholic churches more harmful policies.  As a nun though, she still has some seriously nonsensical views, and as a successful writer, views that can cause un told harm.

I've long held that pro-lifers aren't pro-life at all. They're the same people that are pro-military, pro-gun, and anti-social safetynet programs. They just want babies to turn into god-fearing sheep who will grow up and pay their tithes and fight their wars.

Yep, youve hit the nail square on its head, Randy.

Comment by Gallup's Mirror on January 6, 2014 at 8:39pm

It's been well established what happens when religious or ideological crackpots legislate unwanted pregnancies to full term: higher crime rates. Pro-life may be pro-birth, but it's also pro-tax-increase, to build more pro-prisons, pro-courthouses, and pro-police stations, and hire more pro-law enforcement, more pro-judges, and more pro-corrections officers.

ok, so it seems no one here is 'pro life' but is anyone a 'pro don't be a stupid bitch'? whats the views on the people that are regulars at the abortion clinic?  Just playing theists advocate

Comment by Randy Rose on January 8, 2014 at 10:10am

David Smith: no one that I am aware of, especially those who are pro-choice, are pro-abortion, especially pro-abortion-as-a-method-of-contraception. As a former Planned Parenthood Sexual Health Educator, I personally did not see or meet anyone who were abortion regulars. I have heard rumors of these people, but I cannot verify that they exist or that they exist in high quantities.

Comment by David Smith on January 8, 2014 at 10:27pm

yea, its probably over exaggerated to make a point, though it does happen.

Comment by Kairan Nierde on January 11, 2014 at 11:45pm

Actually, I'm 'pro-don't be such an irresponsible a dick,' too. Wow.

Comment by IkeArrumba on January 12, 2014 at 8:15pm

I agree with you David Smith. I am pro choice, but people should be responsible as well. If you are male and you get someone pregnant, and you didn't mean to, then man up and take responsibility for your actions. I believe that abortion should be the LAST choice, but it should be an option when the only other possibility is a poorly raised, unloved human. That would be the real tragedy.
