Lame Excuses Dept.

The American Catholic tries to address the argument of some that the pro-life movement is oftentimes inconsistent, failing to address important pro-life issues other than abortion.

The reason given is that if the pro-life movement were more in favor of big government, it would be less inclusive. Huh?

Either anti-malaria programs in Africa are pro-life or they are not, and the decision to defund them must be seen in that context by pro-life advocates.

Either aid to women facing crisis pregnancies will help those women to decide to keep their child and carry it to term, and is consequently a pro-life policy, or it isn't. The American Catholic averts his eyes when it suits him. And, there is nothing pro-life about that.
