I consider myself pro-choice and support the death penalty but can appreciate other views.
Doesn't sound like it. These are obviously 2 completely different situations in question here. One a convicted felon who committed a terrible crime versus a fetus, possibly human or not. How is that life similar in any way? I believe life begins at conseption. This is a child who has not had a chance to make any decisions. The aforementioned deathrow inmate has.
Yes they are different situations but isn't a life a life. You said in school you were taught when life begins...were you not also taught that all lives are precious? I don't necessarily believe that but some do.
When you take a life, you forfeit your own.
And not every one believes that either. You know there are plenty of anti-death penalty people out there. It just proves we all different lives differently. So we're trying to tell the mother, sorry your fetus's rights takes precedent over your rights'
How are the fetus's rights taking precedent over the mother's? The mother was born.
