Hypocricy of life

Haven't you noticed it's usually the same group of people who "mourn" every american soldier killed and obsess over the body count....the same people who will defend to the death the "right" of a pregnant woman to have her baby slaughtered for any reason whatsoever. Which is it?

But as a counterpoint, you could argue that the same people that vehomently defend the life of the unborn strongly support the termination of the lives of convicted prisoners. If you throw out the innocence/guilty arguement, both still boil down to the ending of the life cycle. Am I correct?

BTW, for the record... contrary to popular stereotypes, I support the death penalty... hard to believe that with all the murderers on death row, only 1000 have been sent on their way since the death penalty was reinstituted.

Mike, I completely see those as two entirely separate items.

Soldiers are adults. People. Able to think and talk and (insert verb here).

Babies - fetuses (is that right? feti?) - tissues, whatever you deem them, cannot do that.

To me, that's comparing apples to oranges.

I usually don't like to open this can of worms, as the value of a human life, or a future human life isn't very well measured by logic and argument, and is one topic where argument is about as productive as a fist fight from opposite sides of a brick wall...

My personal view is that because every baby has the opportunity to grow into an adult, it should not be disregarded simply because it is not yet one. I think unrestrained convenience abortion is all the more tragic considering as adults, soldiers make the choice to put their lives on the line in defense of our way of life. A choice which I honor. An unborn baby cannot make his/her own choices, and is completely at the mercy of the adults involved. The very essence, indeed a purety of innocence.

I believe the measure of a society is not in how it treats it's equals, but how it treats the weak and defenseless. It just saddens me to see such a callous and selfish disregard among so many for something so wonderful as the creation of another human being.

If you don't believe ia fetus is a person, I'm not going to try to convince you with studies, scriptures, or sonograms. I would ask you to consider, and you don't even have to respond...but ask yourself, "Why do I believe the way I do? What goal am I trying to accomplish? Is the world a better place for having kept these children out of it?"
