I, along with many others, have long seen the humor and hypocrisy in the application of the term "pro-life". The problem with this term is that it implies basic respect for all living things, a quality that the people who wear this badge often don't display. After all, they're pro-death penalty, anti-environmental regulation, proponents of war... you get the idea.
So, what to do about this apparent contradiction? Coin a new term to describe these people. A Benedictine nun on Bill Moyers' PBS show recently used the term "pro-birth" in reference to these one-issue zealots.
It's accurate, succinct, and I like it.
