  •  They claim (17+ / 0-)

    fetuses are seen as "human garbage", while they themselves see pregnant women as merely breathing incubators.

    If they were truly "pro-life", they would be in the forefront of health care reform including single payer, so that every pregnant woman has access to full pre-natal care, women who might want to become pregnant can access drug treatment programs so they can kick their addictions, and comprehensive sex education and contraceptive access (and don't give me that "abortifacient" crap) so pregnancies can be prevented until the woman and her partner are ready to shoulder the responsibilities.

    But it's not about the "pre-born" -- it's about punishing the woman for opening her legs (whether voluntarily or under force).

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
