two quick things, one of which is mostly just a side comment and kind of a derail so i don't expect an actual answer, though if you can post even a cliff's notes version of a reply to appease my curiosity on the issue that would be cool.I'm willing to view life as sacred without any religious connotation. Even as an atheist, it is easily viewed that life is rare and beautiful.
But on the other hand, these pro-lifers don't give a fuck about life. They don't care about the woman who is undoubtedly alive.
1. how is life, especially human life, rare? or beautiful, but that's an aesthetic choice i guess.
there are almost 8 billion of us. we're fucking everywhere. you can't spit most place without hitting a human.
(ok that's obviously hyperbolic in terms of geography but i mean, there's a shitload of humans)
humans aren't rare, and human life being beautiful is... well let's just say i find the description of human life as 'beautiful' insanely narrow and cherry-picking from the broader swath of human experience.
2. they do give a fuck about 'life' but in terms of quantity, not quality.
existence, at any cost, regardless of the context or circumstances, is their central operating thesis.
forcing existence on as many new human consciousnesses as possible is the end goal, what happens to those beings once they're shat into existence is irrelevant to them.
