It’s not possible to lightly dismiss this heartfelt piece.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for reading the piece and for your response. To answer your question, the essay is not meant to lump all pro-life supporters into sharing the views I describe in the essay. I am fully aware that not all pro-life supporters want to see food stamps slashed, or are opposed to the minimum wage hikes, for example. They’re not even all Christians. I understand this. But I do think the piece is addressed to all pro-life supporters. What I hope this piece does is makes those who are pro-life stop and think about what they’re really supporting when they vote for a pro-life candidate (i.e., Republicans by and large). I hope they stop and think that yes, by voting for candidates who want a Supreme Court Justice who will reverse Roe v. Wade, for example, they are also voting for a party that opposes so many things that make life easier for that child they want so desperately to be born. This piece is not pro-life or pro-choice, it’s simply an illumination on the fact that being pro-life should be a lifetime commitment, but as it stands the whole movement is riddled with hypocrisy.
