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.

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.
