I just find that very interesting.
There is no inconsistency - if you accept that a fetus is a human then by definition it is an innocent one. Believing that does not mean you can't think a human's actions can eventually justify his execution.
A pro-lifer would respond it's interesting that pro-choicers defend people who have committed terrible crimes but want to kill innocent humans. Like I said above, I am pro-choice but there are no simple arguments here. It all comes back to when humanity begins and there will never be a consensus on that.
As for war, it is always a bad thing but often necessary. Whether the Iraq war was justified is a seperate issue and you're comparing apples and oranges.
