Do you think it is hypocritical to be both pro-life AND in support of the death penalty?
Are you trying to split the vote?
I'm pro-choice and against the death penalty but I don't think it's hypocritical. People on death row are assumed to be guilty of some awful crime. An unborn child is innocent.
If one were to draw a line between extreme innocence and extreme guilt, saying HERE'S where they deserve to die, surely the unborn would be among the innocents. On the other hand, one could use a scale of awareness or pain and justify the opposite.
Yeah that's why Im against the death penalty
We're all a little hypocritical in our beliefs. Lots of beliefs contradict each other.
Yes but usually on smaller issues, the sanctity if life is a pretty important be considering all of the debates it has sparked recently
Sanctity of life is a pretty big topic. Personally, I support abortion but do not support the death penalty. Many people are the opposite. Texas executed their 500th person the same day they were up in arms over abortion. It's hard not to be...
Hypocritical when it comes to abortion and the death penalty. My reasons for supporting one and not the other having nothing to do with life but other factors that have to be considered. Good question!!
Knowing my own stance on the issues it would be hypocritical. But, it really depends on the reasons a person gives for being pro-life and for supporting the death penalty.
Maybe we just need to get better at predicting future behaviors. Kill'em while they are still fetal.
Haha great solution!
You say that like there is an obvious flaw in my plan ... ;-)
Hahaha you crack me up sometimes sir!
Of course. You are either pro-life in every case or you're not pro-life. You don't get to add asterisk on "life" to fit your agenda, especially not when you use the term "pro-life" as an ideological battering ram on those who disagree with you.
Using that logic I can only assume that you are pro-life and against abortion as well as against the death penalty is that correct?
Pro-life is just an emotional rhetoric piece used by people who use emotional arguments. I don't label myself that, and I'm not against abortion.
Flip your argument around in the same could be said about the pro choice movement.
How is that?
I am all for giving an innocent the ability to live and pursue happiness. But as a free thinking adult I believe you can forfeit that right by an action or actions that cause great harm or death to another human.
Really good question. I'd be interested in seeing the results if the coin were turned as well
I can't wait to see how it breaks down
Sure, why not
