Portland Joins Nationwide Show of Support for Planned Parenthood


Does being pro-choice mean that you guy's support somebody's choice to not provide funding an organization that fundamentally violates their conscience?
In one simple quote, Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B. sums up the hypocrisy of many in the 'pro-life' movement:
"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."
^ Very interesting take ellej. I've never heard the argument couched in those terms before. Definitely adds some depth to the discussion.
