I someone says they're pro-life, how can they say they're pro-war?
Warring ... against War ... Is indeed a Pro-life activity ...
It depends if you think war can be justified in any circumstance. I'm not talking about our current imperial conquests for oil. I mean a situation with a Hitler type.
If you think war is morally justified under limited circumstances, and your argument is defensible, then it's possible to be pro-life and "pro-war.". I'm currently undecided on whether all wars are unjustifiable, or just most. I'm still giving this some thought.
I'm not sure, when I look at the 20th century, I believe that only one war was justified, that against Nazi Germany.
I once saw a bit grafitti scrawled on an underpass wall:
'I'm fighting for peace
It's rather like f*****g for virginity.'
That sums up the whole thing, do I take a life to prevent someone else taking another life? That brings in all sorts of value judgements about worth of anothers life.
I don't think anybody says that they are "pro-war," even if they are--they know it sounds bad.
What they do say, sometimes, is that the 'unborn' are most deserving of protection, since they are the least guilty of all humans, not having yet had a chance to do anything wrong. Logically, it's a bit unpersuasive, since the opposite is also true--what value is there in virtue that is completely untested? But it has a certain emotional appeal, I suppose.
Then again--looking at previous answers, it seems I need to reconsider the thought that no-one says they are 'pro-war!'
It is difficult indded tounderstand how someone can fight for a fetus but support the bombing and disfigurement of millions of children. It is inconcievable that one can demand justice for a fetus and not use the same drive and passion to care for 1 of the millions of children around the world who are born but die of disease, wars and starvation. However, it is concievable that people can find justifications for whaterver in their minds they think is write or wrong.
because they have no idea what life or death is or what they're about
Simple, most people are complete hypocrites and pick and choose what morals and beliefs they want to stick to.

If someone says the words to you, 'what goes around comes around', how do you respond?Do you agree? Disagree? Totally dismiss it? And, I have heard this stated in different terms as well.

WikiLeaks is involved in uncovering many hateful activities of the US government. In this respect would it be justified to restrict their activities by the US government?

What do you think when someone says, "Does that make sense to you?"In Texas, this question seems to punctuate lectures on a regular basis. Three feelings tend to go through my mind when this question is...
