    There are many people (numerous Catholic priests and nuns come to mind) who are against the death penalty, as well as being against reproductive freedom.
    That is a consistent wold view.

    I was looking at it in context of the 112th Congress, and no one in Congress meets your description (to my knowledge).

    So, as you pointed out, forcing one's own brand of hypocrisy on the nation is not a reasonable policy position.

    Don't make me meta. You wouldn't like me when I meta.

      the acceptance of the notion of humanity from fertilization on, as currently made, has the automatic and absolute effect of eliminating any competing rights or issues for the carrier of that fertilization. There is no competition allowed to the rights of the fertilization. We would be in a different place if the rights of born women were given the same respect as these want for the fertilization. A potential held worth more than any actual, person, no matter what the circumstances.
