Pro-lifers could say that those who are anti-war are atually pro-death…. you don’t want to kill the enemy, but you don’t mind the enemy killing Americans.
Pro-war is in defense of innocent human life. If someone were attacking you, would you say, “No, I can’t shoot him, even though he is trying to kill me?” Probably not.
You defend terrorists, and yet you don’t defend innocent babies. You defend anti-American terrorists, and you defend the American terrorists: abortion.
And pro-lifers are the hypocrites?
And no, this has nothing to do with women’s bodies. A baby is not a part of your body. In that case, if you are pregnant with a boy, you must also have a penis as well. This is about keeping laws off of a baby’s body. Do I think a mother has the right to pay a doctor to puncture her child’s skull and suck out his brains with a vacuum? No. To rip him limb from limb? No. To burn him alive with salt saline solution? No.
Do I think you have to right to shoot someone in self-defense? Yes.
And every one of you believe that as well, and yet you criticize the President? That just proves who the real hypocrites are.

Fantastic and eloquent cartoon. The anti-choice lobby infuriates me because they choose to go searching between the legs of strangers for life worth defending as their heroes kill numberless innocents who have actually been born all over the world and the US continues its shame as one of the few savage holdout countries to still indulge in institutionalized vendetta killing Knowing that our judicial system is fatally flawed; And these “pro-some-life” cretins cheer all of that slaughter like the audience in a coliseum or worse, shrug and talk about how people like George Bush are Christian Men.
Until we close shut down all the HMOs in favor of faith-healing we’ll have to agree that life begins when science says it does, but even if it didn’t what kind of American would give the State the power to force a person to carry anything inside of their bodies under any circumstances? The person who made the Taleban comment is right. These people were born not only in the wrong century but in the wrong country.

If not hes a 24 carat phoney and really ought to discontinue drawing cartoons with this kind of content.
Well sir, it is odd to me that you accept the premise of the cartoon, yet you call him out on another subject. The point of the cartoon is the betrayal. It’s too bad you call him a coward (essentially) for not tackling abortion.
Well this isn’t about abortion, is it? You have been tricked in the name of your principles. That’s what it’s about and you seem to see that. Frankly, I don’t see how calling BS on the use of abortion means that he must then share his own beliefs. Do we really need one more schmuck’s opinion (no offense Mr. Fish)?
Do you care about mine? Go ahead, guess. Yep. You nailed it. Who cares.
The point is the political and moral betrayal, not what one more guy thinks.

I hear the anti-choicers voted for Bush.

Woman are sick and tried of mens obsession about the need to control womens reproductive systems; because it is NOT about being pro-life, it is really about womens civil rights to control their own bodies. Women do not need misogynistic Taliban-like DICKS legally trying to repress their rights.

A Catholic and a committed pro-lifer, I’d agree that this cartoon captures the regretable truth of the fate of some life affirming issues in the hands of the Bush Regime. And while most of the blood on the hands of the protestor clearly can be attributed to the aggression in Iraq, not all of it can. A reasonable portion owes its existence to the federal funding of stem-cell research authorized by the notorious compromise
annunciated by Der Fuehrer in 2001.
If the cartoonist’s point is that pro-lifers need to be consistent, he’s reading the thoughts of one that is. Does he have the personal moxie to be consistent himself, to step up to the plate on stem-cell research and abortion? If not he’s a 24 carat phoney and really ought to discontinue drawing cartoons with this kind of content.

Wow, Bushs hands were bloody from killing all those sacrificial lambs.

Pro-life activists believe in pro-choice; you can choose to join the all voluntary military—“better YOU dead than ME dead.”
