Shot In The Street

anonymous:

Being born isn’t enough. Because of ‘pro-life’ legislators, children are starving in their cribs. Children are being denied education. Children are being shot in the street because of the color of their skin. How about you work to help the children who are already here, instead of only caring until the moment they come out of their mother’s womb? You are worse than any pro-choicer.

Your statement is a fantastic and hyperbole ridden attempt to connect pro-life legislators to people who are shot in the street and babies ‘starving’ in their cribs, and it’s not true.

There are a myriad of public and private programs that form a safety net for mothers with child, both pre and post-born.

No child is denied an education. In fact, it’s illegal to not send your child to school unless they are being homeschooled.

I’m not sure how a pro-life legislator who works to save children from being killed by the depraved act of abortion bears the responsibility for another person’s decision to shoot someone in the street. Perhaps that person should be held accountable for their own actions?

Pro-life cares immensely about all life, whether in the womb or not. I hear your ridiculous claim repeatedly. Most people have a cause that they fight for and focus on. We can’t fight for every cause in the world. I am comfortable that there is sufficient support applied by others to end hunger, war, sex trafficking, child abuse, homelessness, sexual assault, political oppression, genocide, etc, etc, etc. I believe that many of the problems I listed would fade away if, as a human community, we fully embrace the beauty and dignity of human life beginning at the moment life begins.

When we devalue human life at any stage we devalue life at all stages.
