This law is not pro-life. It’s pro-fetus. Pro-life means all life. A Navy Veterans Prayer shirt How can one support the death penalty and be “pro-life”? How can one be pro-guns and be “pro-life”? How can one be okay with locking children in cages, separating them from their parents and be “pro-life”? How can one be against aid to the poor and be “pro-life”? I could go on and on. Again, there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between pro-life and pro-fetus. So wrong Our Veterans Mias POWs fought for America not the Lgbt movement or stupid metro movement. Father, I am so angry at this not because I am in favor of abortion but because it takes the choice away from the women or in some cases young girl. We do not support life. We as Catholics have this wrong. Jesus was conceived and born because young women said YES. She was allowed a choice and because of his trust in her ability to make that choice she gave us her so. It is not surprising that a government that devalues women’s dignity and autonomy would commit deadly violence against its citizens. It is all part of a patriarchal worldview

Sadly most people who say they are pro-life are only anti-abortion. I asked the pastor of our Catholic Church to talk about what it means to be pro-life according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. He said no because he doesn’t want people to think he is against Donald Trump. So glad there are people who know what it means to be pro-life. Thank you. Thank you for this post. I have been saying this to people forever. As well as gun reform is a pro-life issue. A living wage is a pro-life issue. Healthcare is a pro-life issue. But what people mean by pro-life is pro-birth and once that life is here you are on your own. The death penalty is the same. You can’t preach one is wrong and murder and sanction the other. When a bill is presented, that is to say, voted upon and presented to the Gov. for signing, it is ONE bill! One Law being passed! As in ONE AT A TIME! Certainly, most pro-life people believe in the sanctity of life, I do! A pre-born child has committed NO crime! Broken NO law! And does not have a voice!! When and wherever we can we must defend the most vulnerable.

Thank you for your well put reflection. All life is sacred from the womb to the tomb. It does not make sense to ban abortion, yet carry out the death penalty, the two are the same and go hand in hand. All life is precious and is a gift from God. Texas did pretty much the same thing a few years ago. The governor gave a “Texas cares about human life” speech, probably relating to something that restricted access to clinics for women, and then executed someone that night. And how many of the people who want to replace “Black Lives Matter” with “All Lives Matter” are the same ones who are thrilled with the bill signed yesterday and probably don’t care about the execution? A Navy Veterans Prayer shirt Thank you, Fr. Martin. I have seen so much about abortion on the internet in the last few days, but I have decided not to be drawn into a discussion that will surely become an argument that will change no one’s mind. It is refreshing, however, to read something about the sanctity of life that actually makes common sense, a commodity that is sorely lacking on both sides of this question.
