    I hear people all the time talking about how abortion is killing. How saving that child in the womb is important. I also feel that way but unlike many here, my feeling run deeper! I support Obamacare! Everyone, including that unborn child deserves a chance at life. How can anyone be prolife yet against providing healthcare to all American? Sound like hypocrits to me! Do they not put a value on that sick parent, grandparent, child, or grandchild? Do they not care that these people aren't able to afford the care they need? Perhaps Obamacare isn't perfect but it gives a glimmer of hope, to those in desparate need of healthcare! Unless you are God himself, what gives you the right to decide who should or shouldn't live? Think about it! Is money that important to you that you put it above personal health? In the end God will judge us all. And as a Christian, I believe the short time we spend on this earth should be compassionate to our fellow man and help one another any way we can.

      Good for you for recognising the hypocrisy. Unfortunately, you seem to be a minority.

    Pro-life to me is being pro ALL of life.

    Hmmm, well, no. If you believe that life starts at conception, abortion would be a direct violation of the child's liberty. Stealing money from people to pay for healthcare is also a violation of their liberty, as is compelling them to provide insurance, or get insurance for themselves. This is perfectly consistent.

    I think people should provide healthcare freely and without coercion.

    I also don't buy the point because you're assuming that universal healthcare actually means that everybody gets healthcare. This is clearly untrue. Just look at the sorry state of the NHS, with declining quality and cleanliness of hospitals, suppression of treatment, rising costs and ridiculous waiting times. Arguing for a better system than that does not mean I want people to die in the streets.

    Most "Pro-lifers" are also pro-death penalty.  Just sayin .... more hypocrisy.

      That I agree with.

      A lot of 'pro-choicers' are also opposed to legalising all drugs.
