A Partial List Of Things That “Pro-Life” Conservatives Support

…Based on the right’s passionate and indignant opposition to any and all policies that would curtail them:

  • Deaths from gun violence.
  • Deaths from war.
  • Deaths from drone attacks.
  • Deaths from torture and mistreatment of military detainees.
  • Deaths by execution.
  • Deaths from tainted food and poorly tested drugs.
  • Deaths from accidents in mines, oil rigs, nuclear plants, or any other unsafe workplaces.
  • Deaths from polluted air and water.
  • Deaths from infrastructure collapses.
  • Deaths from lack of health care.
  • Deaths from poverty and starvation.
  • Deaths from natural disasters.
  • Deaths from abnormal pregnancies.
  • Extinction of endangered species.

The right’s definition of “life” as fetuses and corporations is as narrow and senseless as their definition of “civility” as the absence of swear words.

Hey, here’s a thought: How about we eliminate the cap on income subject to payroll taxes, then revisit Social Security benefits?

And if that means we have to increase those benefits or lower the retirement age to make the numbers balance out, well, I’m willing to live with that.
