    “Pro-lifers” are also about making sure pedophile priests have enough motherless kids to molest.  If the RCC believed its own crap, it would ban abortifacient caffeine and consecrated wine at Masses for all fertile women.  It would also administer last rites to used tampons.  Ask fetal idolators about these “oversights” and watch their pompous heads explode! :D

    So Jesus served non-alcoholic “miracle” wine at the Cana wedding and Last Supper??  Bummer!  And while your priest serves non-alcoholic wine at Mass (for the blue haired ladies), he keeps the real stuff for himself and the altar boys! :D

    With that said, I am also pro-choice.  The 2 times in my life I have been a party to an unwanted pregnancy, I supported my partners choice although I had a different opinion.  Don’t downplay that attitude.

    Sorry for the double post.

    I have no love or respect for the current “pro-life” crowd.  They are about punishing women for not fitting into their sterotype of a virgin bride waiting until marriage to have sex.  These “pro-lifers” will rant against contraception and comprehensive sexual education that would actually reduce the rate of abortion and save their worshipped fetus.  Being “pro-life” is forcing a pregnancy on a woman as a punishment for being a slut in their eyes.  These are the same people that will threaten women with hell and death at abortion clinics for exercising their legal right.  They’ll even force a rape and incest victim to continue a pregnancy despite the wishes of the incubator(woman).  “Pro-life” my ass, more like forced birthers.

    This is a bit of a mischaracterization of both Libby Anne and the article itself. She writes in this piece that she no longer believes that a zygote, embryo, or fetus is a person. In other posts on her blog it is clear that despite her pro-life past she is now decidedly pro-choice, this was just one in a series of articles about abortion and how she came to change her beliefs.

    Hence the term  ‘former “Pro-lifer”‘ .

    Yes, but the author of this article ends it with this statement: “Libby Anne is only wrong in one regard. She’s still pro-life. She’s just no longer anti-choice.” Which is clearly not true.

    There is a difference between being pro-life and being part of the “pro-life movement”. To me being pro-life means supporting the lives of born children with things like housing and food and adequate education, it means protecting women’s health and lives through a health care system that sees them as human beings and a legal system that takes domestic violence seriously, it means not starting unneccessary wars and protecting our environment so that future generations have access to clean water and aid neccesary to sustain life. All of these things are pro-life and none is inconsistent with supporting the bodily autonomy of people. 

    The anti-choice movement believes in life until birth and that’s not a very pro-life position to me.
