What Does Pro Life Mean?
What does it mean to be pro-life? Answer some simple questions and rate yourself.
- Should the sick be cared for even if they can’t afford health care?
- Should the elderly be cared for even if they can’t afford health care?
- Should the poor be cared for even if they can’t afford health care?
- How about if they have to chose between heat and medicine?
- Should the homeless be cared for?
- Should illegal aliens be cared for even if they can’t afford our hospitals?
- Should the minimum wage be high enough to provide a meaningful way of life for everyone, one that includes medical and retirement?
- Are you against the death penalty?
- Are you against abortions?
Count up all your “yes” votes. If you have only one “yes” vote, some strange folks would say you’re pro-life. But anyone with even the slightest grasp on reality would say that anyone with less than 90% “yes” vote is just mediocre. Anyone with less than 50% “yes” has a serious problem. If you are below the 50% mark, I strongly suggest you read the Constitution of the United States and start with the introduction, or preamble. Just in case you can’t find it, here is how it starts:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
It should be pretty obvious to even the most uneducated in our society that the purpose of our government is so we can provide for the wellbeing of ourselves and our neighbors. The entire introduction to our constitution lays it out in black and white.
