How many times have we heard leftist liberals say that pro-life people [particularly Conservative ones] are hypocrites because they defend the right of the unborn while supporting the death penalty for murderers? They say that it's hypocritical to affirm the sanctity of life while favoring the death penalty for violent criminals. Well, I'm one of those guys who happens to be both. And I'll give a coherant and eloquent defense of that position. First of all, it's crucial to understand that the unborn are helpless babies who did no wrong. But when someone murders or commits a violent crime, then the guilty person loses his/her the right to live. As a society, we punish people who do evil, not innocent people who are helpless. And in actuality, being both pro-life and pro-death penalty is consistant with that position. It's still consistant with the basic moral position of punishing the bad guys and stopping them from doing any more evil while protecting innocent life. So yes, I'll show why I'm pro-innocent life. I'm pro- save any helpless life. Meaning I DON'T support aborting babies, especially if they're disabled. I consider the fact that more than 90% of babies being aborted for having down syndrome ot be an ableist Holocaust. And it's our duty as a society to help and care for the weak and disabled, not to kill people on the morally repugnant grounds of their existence being a burden. In fact, I'll show that in this issue, pro-choice leftist liberals who oppose the death penalty, are the REAL hypocrites. They want to protect the lives of violent criminals while they're ok with the systematic genocide of millions of babies in the womb in the name of the woman's right to "choose." In addition, they want to protect the lives of rapists while championing the killing of babies conceived in rape in the name of caring for the rape victim, which is hypocritical to the core.
