“Pro-Life begins at conception and ends at birth.”

I don’t believe that all pro-lifers are like this, but way too many of them are, as evidenced by this shocking piece by pro-life blogger Jill Stanek. In a review of the new Costner film Mr. Brooks, Stanek concludes that aGf2i serial killer who targets women is slightly “redeemed” because he doesn’t believe in abortion. And in a similar post, a real man who discovers wife/girlfriend has had an abortion will slap the shit out of her (as opposed to the “wimps” of today who say “I’ll support you in whatever you decide.”) -Yay Michael Corleone!

You can’t make this stuff up. Read about it in the very clear and succinct post by Jill on feminste.

By the way, the Godfather II scene is tremendously powerful. And when he slaps her after she admits she aborted his child, it is the exact right action for that character. Michael Corleone, boss of a mob empire, kills when he needs to, maims, roughs-up as called for, spends his life in an effort to maintain utter control of the world around him. Old-school Italian man with a sense of ownership of wife and children – they’re yours to provide for and yours to control. The mafia world is one of male supremacy where the notion of “respect” reigns above all else.

It is a tremendous scene in a tremendous film. It is NOT an across-the-board blueprint for how to behave today.

It is this extreme elasticity of reason that is such a frightening quality in many pro-lifers who, as Stanek so generously illustrates, will go to any lengths to pull together a case for their cause, even when the case they make advocates and/or excuses violence against and killing of women.

The value of life begins at conception and ends at birth. Horrifying.

    You have grossly misrepresented Ms. Stanek’s blog posting. Her point was that even sadistic criminals understand that abortion is wrong. Not one word of the post even suggested that she was giving them a pass because they opposed abortion. It is you who have stretched the truth.
