Pro-Life, or Pro-Control

Many people want to impose their will to control the lives of women without regard to the impact on their lives or desires. The people who claim control over women’s reproductive decisions say they are Pro-Life, but typically support the death penalty while being against universal health care. People claiming to be conservative and Pro-Life typically tilt toward controlling other people through fear, punishment, and assaults on dignity. We sadly live in a time where the mask of religious pretension slides off to reveal a lack of empathy, with a proverbial unfitness to judge. The conservative drive towards autocracy and tribalism is a threat to our republic. Women are the current target in the news, but there will be others if people of good will do not rise up humble Republicans. Research and act to protect democracy and dignity.
