Catholic Nun Explains Pro-Life In A Way That Will Stun Many!!
Reader the 2 year old quote below is from Sister Joan Chittister, a Benedictine Nun, who sums up the anti-abortion hypocrites during a PBS interview. She makes a very valid point, Pro-life means all human lives. Not just babies in a woman's womb.
"I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there."
It annoys me that anti-abortion advocates call themselves "pro-life"…1) for the reasons cited by this nun and 2) because it infers that abortion rights activists are against "life." Like I've mentioned on this blog before, one can be for a woman's right to choose but morally against the idea of abortion. Most people, I believe, do not "advocate" abortion, but believe that it is a personal decision that should not be usurped by government or religious moralists.
