I've said it several times before: the only people who are "pro-life" (more accurately termed "pro-birth") have not thought the issue through. This couple hadn't thought it through until they were confronted with a situation that forced them to think it through. So yeah, after having done the work, it's no surprise they can no longer wrap their heads around lawmakers forcing their beliefs on the electorate, because now they have first hand experience with how damned stupid the law is.Gunnar wrote: ↑Sun Sep 18, 2022 7:06 pmWell, I'm sure she has done that much already, which is why her own thinking changed. Hopefully her story will persuade others (especially lawmakers) why their own thinking needs to change on this issue. But I see your point. Certainly, at one time, she was able "to wrap [her] head around the thought process of lawmakers that would rather a full-term baby suffocate to death than allow a mother to make a decision that spares her child that pain," unless she initially didn't fully consider the inevitability of such scenarios occasionally coming to pass as long as draconian anti-abortion policies remain in place.
People who call themselves "pro-life" never consider the bad pregnancies, only the optimal ones. They aren't pro-life, they're pro-ignorance and pro-controlling others.
