Today, you reminded all your friends of this quote from Ronald Reagan: "We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life—the unborn—without diminishing the value of all human life." Bravo! I have never heard a more persuasive argument for taking bold, immediate action to protect future generations from the devastating effects of global climate change. Because "the unborn" in that quote means all the future generations who will inherit this planet, right? Wait, you mean your idol, the Gipper, wasn't talking about protecting future generations, but was really rationalizing his (and your) desire for the government to seize control over women's bodies and fertility? And do you mean that you'll support, fund, and vote for people who want to do not only that, but also will prevent the rest of us from taking the necessary action to keep our planet as livable as possible, for all generations, present and future, in order to protect their profits and power? So that's what "pro-life" means, huh? What are your thoughts on the death penalty and universal health care? Yeah, never mind.
