    I'd argue that having an abortion is pro-life, in that it...

    reduces poverty
    filters out deformity
    prevents really bad marriages
    leads to better opportunity
    sucks a little less air away from the rest of us.
    If you want something bad enough, just take it.

    Of course one can have an abortion and be pro--life. All those conservative women carrying pro-life signs, protesting in parades and yelling (or praying as some claim) at women going into clinics have had abortions at the same rate as pro-choice women.

    So yes, it is possible hold two opposing thoughts in your head. I'm against murdering innocent little babies and I'm going to have an abortion to get rid of my boyfriends baby because I'm in college and we're both too young to start a family", which is the same reason as the young women I'm yelling at or praying for who are going into the clinic to get an abortion.

    It's not difficult if you think like a conservative Christian that the world is divided into two groups the in-group and the out-group.

    The in-group is protected by the law but not bound by it. The out-group is is bound by the law but not protected by it.

    That's Wilhoit's principle. It applies to more things than just abortion. Think priests, preachers, Trump, Trump supporters, state aid, Merrick Garland/Bret Kavanaugh,

    Agree. An abortion is always pro-life. Aborting an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy always enables someone and often some family to live a better life. How more pro-life can it get?

    If we take that reasoning to it's logical conclusion; getting rid of half the people on the planet, especially the poor ones, will make life better for the rest. No more environmental concerns, no more welfare, much less crime. Can we count on you to be the first in line to go? We're looking for volunteers first....then we'll go to conscription.
