Objectively, the prerogative is to enforce that any consensually or non-consensually pregnant woman is forced to give birth to her child, regardless of extreme physical pain, psychological trauma (rape,) potential death (miscarriage, vaginal bleeding,) their own fully developed humanity, conscience, relatives, children, or the fact that the baby (no matter how valued by others) is of their creation and responsibility.
This indirectly portrays pregnant women as little more than human incubators; Pro-life is considered by some to be an unconscious form of female objectification/anti-feminism.
Some Pro-lifers (some of whom are men and/or otherwise incapable of experiencing the pain of child-birth) seem to believe they have a self-given right to regulate the abilities of pregnant women.
However, it should be noted that despite some Pro-lifers are an embarrassment to others, some are actually polite, intelligent and have substantial respect for the concerns/conditions of pregnant mothers.
Jack: "Just because I'm pro-life doesn't mean I condone violence against women, or the reduction of their rights."
Jamie: "You could be in support of specific women's rights, but that doesn't change the fact you condone the removal of one of two significant choices made available to mothers and rape victims."
Jack: "I can understand your sentiments, but my approach to the removal of abortion would be gradual, sensitive and respectful."
Jamie: "Maintaining such a seemingly justifiable cause would be challenging in light of your blatant opposition to established women's rights."
Jack: "It would be replaced with a system that provided unanimous support and respect for pregnant women."
Jamie: "Well, at least you'd be willing to establish such a system in its place, as opposed to just destroying abortion clinics and bellowing misogynistic profanities."
Jack: "I know you don't agree with my sentiments, but thanks for at least understanding them."
Jamie: "No problem, I suppose not all Pro-lifers are bad."
An American political stance characterized by the belief that abortions constitute murder. Currently, America has legal abortions available to those who want and can afford them. Persons of the pro-life platform wish for abortion to be illegal. Compare to pro-choice
President Bush is pro-life.
The belief that all life is sacred and deserves to be protected. One who is truly pro-life will oppose capital punishment, war, poverty, and all forms of physical or mental torture. Such a person will see abortion as a tragedy for all involved, not a "reproductive right" to be celebrated - and will work to end abortion, not by force or intimidation, but by working to change the social and economic conditions that lead people to choose abortion.
i hate it when people think that because i identify as pro-life, i would support such atrocities as capital punishment, pre-emptive war, or violence against women.
1. Someone who is against abortion. While most merely protest and express their outrage for it, few others go hypocrite and kill abortion clinic doctors. Opposite of pro-death, indeed!
2. Often called Anti-choice.
The pro-life woman ranted and raved that killing is wrong, and to prove her point, she shot a doctor dead because he performed an abortion. In other words, she felt that a fetus was more important than a living, breathing human being.
A political stance in which protects the human rights of a undeveloped human, but apparentley the feelings of the woman who was raped didn't matter.
"My sister was raped but due to the Pro Life laws, She was forced to have a kid she didn't want."
Politically correct label that applies to people who oppose a woman's right to chose. The choice of words, 'pro-life', suggests that the people who don't agree with them are 'pro-death' and therefore bloodthirsty babykillers.
Using the 'pro-life' label allows those who are described by it to do the following:
-Avoid any rational debate
-Advocate the murder of doctors who perform abortions
-Walk around with pictures of dead babies
-Never have to point out that they have never been in a predicament that would have them consider abortion (extreme poverty, rape...)
-Live in a fantasy world where abortionist kill babies as a hobby in satanic rituals
-Speak God's name in vain
-Hello, I'm Michael, 'I'm pro-life'.
-Really? well that's nice, death sure is overrated.
-Wanna look at my pictures of mutilated babies?
In the most non biased way I can say it:
A term, generally used to describe the views preserving life,although most commonly used for those against abortion.
Pro Lifers usually believe that
- Abortion is Wrong
- Euthanasia is Wrong
- The Death Penalty is wrong
- Everyone has the right to life
No we are not anti-woman or sexist in any way. We just belief everyone has the right to life.
I believe that all life is good, and should be respected. I am Pro Life.
Name given to citizens who believe that abortion and/or the dealth penalty is wrong. Many believe that pro-life only refers to abortion.
Christians usually spend too much time focusing on abortion and not enough on the Death Penalty. Usually to present this they carry around picture of mutilated babies, many of which are fake.
Although some may disagree with their beliefs, they should not dehumanize them. They have the right to believe what they please. They should also do this to pro-choicers.
1. I am pro-life, I believe that a fetus is actually a human life, with a soul, and every fetus has the right to life.
2. I am pro-choice, the opposite of pro-life, I believe that the fetus is just a mass of human tissue. I believe that a woman should decide whether she wants to continue with her pregnancy.
