Can you call them Pro Life now? by punctual3 Can you call them Pro Life now? by punctual3
First of all, 99% of the time, no babies are killed during abortion. Most abortions are carried out when the fetus is just a non-sentient fetus. The few times when they happen during late-term pregnancies is to preserve the mother's life, or when the baby won't survive childbirth.

There are, however, loads of instances in which anti-abortionists have directly and indirectly killed actual people. There was that tragedy with Savita Halappanavar, who was refused abortion, and died as a result of a miscarriage: [link].

There have also been many accounts of anti-abortionists first-degree murdering/injuring doctors and bombing clinics/hospitals (just naming some examples):

In addition, any attempt to illegalize abortions will just result in making abortions unsafe. Unsafe abortions kill 70,000 women a year. On top of that, an average of 300,000 women die from childbirth each year.

No one who values life would support any of this.

My stance on when life starts is this: if a person is clinically dead when their heart stops, then until the fetus's heart starts its not alive yet.

My german friend hasn't killed anyone, does that mean the holocaust never happened?

Which is exactly the point I was making. One has nothing to do with another. You want to be anti choice fine with me but don't pretend these murders never happened.

Other prolifers have though (as shown in this description).  So, nah, the stamp contains much truth.

Pro-lifers have killed over 50 million people?

If you're honestly making the implication that the number of deaths caused by abortion is anywhere near 50 million, I've already argued against the notion in the description.

The idea that a non-sentient being is not a living being is illogical. If it's not dead, then it's alive. Therefore, when the child is aborted, there is a death. Every abortion ends in at least one person dying.

And yes, in the United States, since the Roe v. Wade trial, there have been over 50 million abortions. Therefore, 50 million deaths.

Abortion can cause the death of the mother as well, such as the death of Tonya Reeves. I do not support the death of anyone, neither the mother or the child. Abortion should be made available if the life of the mother is at stake, but only for that reason. You cannot argue that one life is more important than the other. Both are equal and deserve the same respect.

One who values life would not deal in such absolutes.
