Being pro-life is to defend the defenseless. To be a voice for the unborn. The smallest among us whose voices cannot yet vocalize a defense for themselves. Sadly, Defend them from their own mother.
Though their rights, By law, Are minimal, They deserve protection and the opportunity at life.
When an individual is executed by the state, They have been found, By a jury of peers, To be guilty of having committed heinous crimes that have taken the lives of the innocent; destroyed families and often have terrorized once peaceful communities. The convicted has had multiple opportunities to appeal their cases, To no avail, And by the people is declared unfit for society. Their appeals occur over the course of up to ten years or more and they are cared for at the expense of taxpayers.
These individuals were given multiple opportunities to choose better options and failed at doing so. They have a debt to pay society and the families of victims.
When digging deeper than just the subject line, More information reveals just cause for the protection of the unborn and the execution of the convicted.
No inconsistencies here.
I think republicans only want to say that they are pro-life
in order to pacify their Christian constituents. The bible says that thou shalt not kill. But, that applies to criminals as well as
unborn fetuses. Republicans can’t
support capital punishment and not support abortion and still be seen as logical. If their foundation is the bible, then they
should be pro-life and anti-capital punishment.
How can a movement that is pro-life be consistent with death? It can not. Capital punishment should be considered murder for a lot of reasons regardless of whatever past crime the victim may have,or may not have in some cases, committed. People do not have the power to restore a life so therefore it would be selfish and audacious to agree with taking one.
