How to get your pro-life card

From LOLGOP at EclectaBlog:

If you want to call yourself “pro-life,” fine. You just have to meet at least five (5) of the following requirements:

[  ] I support publicly funded nurse coaching.

[  ] I support universal health care.

[  ] I support paid parental leave.

[  ] I oppose the death penalty.

[  ] I support comprehensive sex education.

[  ] I oppose abortion in nearly all circumstances (if you must).

[  ] I believe abortion should be safe and legal, which makes the procedure less common.

[  ] I oppose wars of choice.

[  ] I believe that pregnancy should be qualifying event for health insurance, because that’s the least we can fucking do if we want a child to be born healthy.

Support any five — even the one I don’t support — and you can have your pro-life card.

To which Alison adds: “I support efforts to ensure that babies once they are born have the material support they need to be healthy and thrive”

  1. Can we also include “I support efforts to ensure that babies once they are born have the material support they need to be healthy and thrive”?

  2. That’s more like it! I am so tired of the misuse of phrases like “pro life” and “religious freedom”.
