Quote from: "Smarmy Of One"There is a saying that anti-abortionists love the fetus and hate the child. Once a child is born and put up for adoption for example, they don't want to have to fund any programs that might help pay for that child's development or any programs that might help single mothers.

You know what's funny about Christians and adoption? They don't do it! They tell girls they should put their kids up for adoption and then never adopt one themselves. In all my life at church, I knew a total of TWO couples who had adopted, and ONLY because they couldn't have children of their own. This is sickening to me.
QuoteThe second item in the liberal creed, after self-righteousness, is unaccountability. Liberals have invented whole college majorsâ€" psychology, sociology, women's studiesâ€" to prove that nothing is anybody's fault. No one is fond of taking responsibility for his actions, but consider how much you'd have to hate free will to come up with a political platform that advocates killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers. A callous pragmatist might favor abortion and capital punishment. A devout Christian would sanction neither. But it takes years of therapy to arrive at the liberal view.-P.J. O'Rourke
Quote from: "susangail"I often here the statement that people who are pro-life and pro-death penalty are hypocrites. This can makes sense especially since these people usually shove it down your throat. But then I turn it around. Are people who are pro-choice and against the death penalty hypocrites?I personally hate the idea of the death penalty and I don't thinks it's ever really necessary. I also don't like the idea of abortion, but I think in some circumstances it is.... appropriate, for lack of a better word. Such as, if the woman was raped. When discussing these topics, I usually say that, to me, the death penalty is a yes or no issue while abortion is more of a grey area. So, does that make me a hypocrite? I simply used myself as an example. I'm not really posting this cause I want to check my views and change any hypocrisies I may have. I just wonder, in general, if a person's views on abortion and the death penalty even relate.
