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.

No, sometimes I don't understand how conservatives can support such violent actions and still claim the pro-life mantle.

SMH.
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

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.

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.

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.

MrMilkdud
07/29/15 7:53 pm

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.

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.

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.

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.
