Are you a pro-life person who also supports randomly killing or maiming illegal immigrants as they cross the border?
That's sadly, one of the ugly media stereotypes about pro lifers.
No. I'm 100% Pro-Life, but I support catching illegals, photographing and fingerprinting them, and sending them back, but imposing escalating jail sentences (30 days up to 10 years) for repeat offenders.
I'm pro choice. I really don't know the best way to deal with illegal immigration.
I am pro choice and want to abolish borders altogether
No, sometimes I don't understand how conservatives can support such violent actions and still claim the pro-life mantle.
Even with these results right here in front of you, you still made the very same comment that inspired this poll.
Look at the results. By and large, conservatives-at least those on this app- don't support killing and maiming illegals.
I wasn't commenting specifically on these nativist policies taken to the extreme, which I acknowledge Republicans are opposed to. Look at other issues like the death penalty where conservatives seemingly abandon the principles of both the pro-life
movement and The Bible itself. It's simply an issue that perturbs me as a Republican.
The term pro-life isn't an amalgamation of "pro" and "life". It means something other than the sum of its parts, it specifically means 'opposed to abortion'. There are many such terms - couch potato, melting pot, bicycle kick... Mystery solved.
And the Bible doesn't prohibit the death penalty.
No. Why can't pro-life groups have billboards of murdered babies, but a dead lion makes headlines? Makes no sense. Oh. Wait. Yes it does. The media is controlled. Never mind.
Man, your poll attracted the subpar readers out of the illiterate woodwork. I agree with you that the two issues are separate. The argument that pro-life folk are hypocrites who thirst for undocumented blood is ridiculous.
So childish... how did this crap make it onto the main poll page? It's not a real question, it's just some guy crying out for people to think like he thinks about abortions.
Maybe you should read the comments thread before spouting off and figure out why I actually posted this poll.
And this poll isn't on the "main poll page." Since I kicked you off my follower list a long time ago, you must be seeing it because someone shared it.
Or on the hot list. Maybe, that's what he means by the "main polls page."
No, I checked. This poll's rating was nowhere near high enough to be on the hotlist at any time last night.
So, what's the verdict?
It appears that "all" pro-life users do not want to indiscriminately kill illegals.
I hope you didn't put money on this poll.
I'm pro choice
A fetus is innocent.
A fetus isn't self aware....
I'm pro-life, pro-path to citizenship, anti-death penalty, pro-gun control, and believe in strict hunting laws. (I don't believe abortion is murder but I am very anti-violence.)
You aren't prochoice?
Wait, I just want to be clear- you want to make abortion illegal?
For the most part. I believe in exceptions.
Wow, well that's something I wasn't expecting. Good to know.
Next your going to tell me you worked on Mike Huckabee's campaign😬
How did you know?! 😂
I am pro life and want our borders closed doesn't mean we should kill them
Exactly my position. I just put up this poll to demonstrate for the pro-choice/open borders lobby that being pro-life/pro-legal immigration is not hypocritical.
I've only dealt with this kind of question before with abortion vs death penalty, but I've always said that I think any of the 4 possible positions can be supported without hypocrisy, because they're different questions.
I agree, Susan. It isn't hypocritical to have a variety of combinations of opinions on these issues. But that's a more complicated discussion than is possible with someone who believes all prolifers want to kill immigrants.
I agree, & that's an absurd position for anyone to take. I also see some of the opposite misbelief in comments below, that if one is pro-life, that automatically extends to being against the death penalty, war, etc. Equally incorrect.
I voted "I am" because I felt like trolling.
It's this wild streak I can't control.
Md- take a look at my new profile pic. I think it should be posted on the border fence we build. 😃
And I love your new pic.
Thanks for ruining the scientificitude of my poll, EB.
When I saw this I literally lol'd! Perfect for this poll!
Wow. That was well-written.
I figured the direct approach would get less resistant from passive aggressive liberals who are constantly whining about bias.
Turns out I enrages passive aggressive pro-lifers who only whine about bias once in a while.
I need to stop typing on my phone when I'm multitasking. Too many mistakes on both tasks.
I do it all of the time.
Yeah, but people don't expect science-types to be good writers.
Especially ones with clumsy fingers on flat iPad keyboards who are becoming far-sighted.
Holy cow - you're seeking an active discussion...
Read the comments below to see the motivation for this poll.
Unlike you, I'm perfectly open about why I write the polls I write and don't accuse people of being mean for pointing out my bias.
I'm not pro-life at all, I'm pro-death. I think the death penalty should be more widely used and sped up. I am also no contest on abortion.
No. I am pro-choice and pro-shooting illegals.
If you're pro-life for a fetus, you have to pro life for everything.
Who asked this question? The turd who mowed the ducks? What a ridiculous moronic question.
Okay, Milkdud, now I read some of these comments and get your question. You're not a duck-mower at all. You're pointing out the real turds. Go Milk go.
That's alright, you aren't the only one who misinterpreted it.
I assumed most of my followers would know enough about my positions on these issues to see where I was going with it.
Pro-life means being anti-war, anti-death penalty and against state violence
I don't support any "random" killing. I do support preventing illegals from entering the US.
It's not random... It's only the ones who are committing a felony by illegally crossing the border.
The question asked about randomly killing or maiming human beings. I do not support randomly killing people.
It is random in the sense that you can't necessarily choose your targets, or hit all the possible targets.
I'm a pro-life person who supports deportation of those living here illegally off of welfare. Take the bias out of the question, you partisan hack.
Would you like to ask me why I posted this poll instead of whatever it is you just did?
Because I'm also a pro-life person who supports deportation of those living here illegally off of welfare.
I was responding to a liberal on another poll who claimed pro-life users who don't support open borders are bloodthirsty hypocrites.
The poll doesn't have a response for a pro-life supporter to have a rational border opinion. The question should have been worded with less bias towards pro-life supporters
So the purpose of this poll was to demonstrate for that person that pro-life people don't generally support indiscriminately killing illegals.
Next time try to remember that a poll does not necessarily reflect the writer's opinion.
If the question was sarcastic, I apologize for not catching on. It's a shame that in today's world that question could be seen as serious
The wording of the question seemed biased against pro-life supporters
The two options are designed to isolate one small group- prolife people who are for the indiscriminate killing of illegals- from everyone else.
You fall into the "everyone else" category. As do pro-choice people.
If I worded it any other way, then the pro-choice user I'm dealing with would have accused me of slanting the poll toward pro-life users.
The question is framed in a way that seems like the options are pro-choice or evil bloodthirsty Mexican hating foetus lover
No, it isn't. That's your bias tainting how you're reading the answers.
I concede that I reacted with bias after reading the answers, but nobody can look at a question like that purely objectively. I now realize that it will have bias regardless of the wording
And to further clarify, you are indeed not a partisan hack (national anthem plays in background).
Pro-life with respect to innocent life. You break the rules and all bets are off ... whether you're legal or illegal, the application of the law is the same.
I support deporting them immediately, but we still should be civil.
Big machine gun nest would help.
I thought somebody so anti-freedom of choice would be all about preserving human life at all costs.
Ron, aren't you pro-choice?
Hey, I'm not anti freedom of choice. If the Dems convince young black women to kill their babies it's all on them. They have to live with it not me. I don't even mind if PP sells the dead babies to save old people.
I'm the same with same sex stuff. I don't rally care what you do with your uglies just don't show them to me.
No, but if an illegal opens fire on an American or American law enforcement officer, the border patrol should be allowed to shoot back without any 'green light' from their superiors. Its idiotic that the border guard can't even defend themselves.
Minefields on the border?
They shouldn't be able to cross the border. If they do, deport them back
Just FYI: I am pro life for me, but as a libertarian, I believe that abortion should be legal. If it is not medically necessary, then it should be elective surgery (where you pay). Do not force docs and hosps to perform things they disagree with.
"Are you a pro-life person who also isn't vegetarian?"
Are you comparing illegal immigrants to animals we eat?
No, it was meant to be a "you don't wanna kill these barely sentient, non responsive beings, but you don't mind murdering thousands of perfectly sentient animals who have even more cognizance at that point than a fetus?"
I don't want to eat illegals or unborn babies. Maybe you should think twice before posting such a ridiculous, off topic comment.
Neither do I...but! The point was that there are a lot of exceptions that we make when considering whose lives we take and whose lives we value over others. It's a more complicated issue than just "I value all life above convenience," because that's
very hard to come by.
It seems like you were trying to hijack the poll by making it about vegetarianism.
No, I'm just saying it's a comparable question that puts it into more perspective. Sorry to come off as hijacking.
Hey, how can you tell if someone is a vegetarian?
They'll tell you they're vegetarian 🍔🍗
Nope. I'm pro-life, with focus on the word life. I don't support killing.
Not killing them, but I do support temporarily killing their dream of coming to America by throwing illegals to the back of the line.
I'm pro-life & pro-justice! Illegals are invading criminal scum. Defend the line boys! Give 'em hell! No retreat, no surrender!

I'm surprised that you haven't been pounced on by liberals for making that picture of an Asian soldier shooting at illegals.
At this point I think I've simply terrified the Libtards into submission 😞 But yes, thank you. My Chinky-chong needs some glasses to shoot straight.
