  •  "Pro-life" is simply not a useful category. (0+ / 0-)

    It means too many different things to different people.

    I consider myself pro-life.

    I oppose the death penalty. I oppose "stand-your-ground" laws that allow someone to kill another person when they feel threatened.

    I support Obamacare with its life-saving and life extending provisions. I support potentially life-saving and life enhancing embryonic stem cell research.

    And I'm pro-peace. (Thanks, CFAmick for that term.)

    I don't think embryos or corporations are people. I disagree with the Bishops and Mitt Romney.

    I'm also pro-choice. Iowa has a new vanity license plate that says, "Choose life." I like that. It needs to be a choice.
