Quote: Life is passionately defended only if the subject of concern is fetal life. "Right-to-life" politicians are often vehement supporters of the death penalty, seemingly oblivious to the obvious internal inconsistency in their attitudes to the beginning and the ending of life. And they generally oppose gun control, despite the fact that guns are now responsible for about as many deaths as car accidents. And you won't see "right-to-life" politicians leading peace marches opposed to the heedless killings of civilians consequent to our careless foreign wars.
And it gets even worse. Paradoxically, the most vocal "right-to-life" politicians, seemingly so solicitous of the welfare of the fetus, are the very same people who suddenly care not a jot for the needs of the living baby. Save the fetus at all costs, but then shamefully neglect the child it inevitably will become. The politicians who insist most that every fertilized cell must be considered a fully formed human are most likely to vote against all social, educational, and medical programs that might assist the resulting child to have a decent and healthy life.
Once born, human life is suddenly no longer sacred. Attention to baby and child welfare suddenly becomes less important than lavishing welfare on corporations and bloating the hoards of the mega rich.
