look up any word, like hipster:
The radical idea that murdering babies is wrong.
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

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

In relation to abortion, one who feels that it is wrong to intentionally terminate a pregnancy. Pro-choice individuals tend to call pro-life individuals anti-choice, though this is not necessarily the case. Pro-life individuals generally, but not always, believe that "elective abortions," or abortions for the purpose of birth control (as opposed to abortions in cases of rape, incest, or medical necessity) should be illegal.
While abortion is despicable and should not be considered an option, it is far better to convince one to choose life than to force one to choose life through lack of options. She who chooses life because she cannot obtain an abortion, has not reached the conclusion that abortion is evil; she who has the option of murdering her own child, but chooses life, has made a conscious decision to reject evil.

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.

it's kind of a double standard in a way, i mean they dont want women to have abortion's no matter the circumstance.

and the reason being is that they are a bunch of idiots who have taken the text of the holy bible too literaly so they are now out to save the hedonistic preggo's and smit the abortionist's.

isnt it kind of ironic that there are pro lifer's out there,,,murdering doctor's!

ha-ha, oh the irony,,,hahahahahahaha!
jerry falwell: hi im pro life!

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."

The attitude or philosophy that counts all human life as sacred and inviolable, from the moment that life exists, at conception, especially since the baby is alive and growing, and different in every way from either parent. Those who are pro-life reject abortion and euthanasia as murder.
The abortionist was intent on continuing his bloodthirsty destruction of babies for many years, and the law was doing nothing to prevent it. Being pro-life, we were left with a choice of taking one life, or turning our backs and allow the killing of thousands to continue. We dearly would have loved to take no life at all, but the abortionist, being a mass murderer, had prevented that choice from being available.
