And yet, they enthusiastically murder adults.

They call it "the death penalty" but it's really state sanctioned pre-meditated murder.

Alabama apparently has the highest per capita death penalty rate in the country. It's been known to impose more death sentences than Texas, a state with five times the population. How does THAT connect with honoring all life?

Let me start and say I am pro-life and I'm against the death penalty. But an adult sentenced to death has been charged and coveted in a court of law and a unborn baby is innocent and has done nothing wrong. Even if the child was conceived by rape or incest the baby is innocent.

2. Lets call it a State Sanctioned Late Term Abortion

And then they’ll be in favor of it


Punish the Guilty, Spare the Innocent, an unborn baby is pretty innocent

Don’t want the kid? Give it up

3. I'll bet that

plenty of convicted criminals were also innocent at the time of their executions.

Not all guilty people go to prison, and not all people in prison are actually guilty.


Question....

If you knew beforehand that, say, Charles Manson and his followers would be responsible for the deaths of a bunch of people including Sharon Tate's unborn child, would you choose to not abort Manson and his followers before they were born? Would that whole question become a difficult ethics problem?

4. Since you are asking hypothetical questions...

what if you aborted a baby and later found out that he/she would have

discovered the cure for cancer?

5. Yes.

That's why I'm against the death penalty. An innocent person could be executed but 100% of aborted children are innocent.

The Parable of the Weeds. Matthew 13:24-30
24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

Funny you brought up the Manson followers as my wife went to high school with Patricia Krenwinkel. To your question I say no. If we know beforehand then you don't let it happen.
