An especially good life.
Ever since I got that new house, I've really been living the pro-life.

A deceptive word usage or oxymoronic word. People who are pro-life are really only pro-birth. Once a person is born, people who are pro-life lose all interest in that person's life.
George W. Bush is Pro-life. His policies killed well over a million people in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he supports every fetus's right to be born. After that, he couldn't care less.

a euphemism for anti-abortion by spin doctors who think this sounds more wholesome.
The Fundamentalist Christian is pro-life, but only if that means she doesn't have to acknowledge the mulatto infant as a human being, and someone else will raise it in a third world country like Mexico or Botswana.

Anti-Women's rights crusaders (like Sarah Palin) who are against all forms of abortion, including cases of rape, disability, and when the women's right is in danger.

Right to know birth control and other methods of teen pregnancy prevention (ie sex education) is being denied by these poorly educated religious fanatics. They insist in abstinence only education, which does not actually do anything to prevent teen pregnancy. Statistics show that 8/10 chastity vow takers break these pleges.

30 years ago in Roe V Wade the supreme court ruled that Abortion was legal, this right has been restricted ever since down to outright banning.

Their followers are usually naive bandwagoners.

Pro-Deather: You're pro-life? You don't care about women's rights!

Pro-Lifer: Yes, just like I don't care about a mugger's right to shoot you

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."
