In my world, you donâ€™t get to call yourself â€œpro-lifeâ€ and be against common-sense gun control â€” like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You donâ€™t get to call yourself â€œpro-lifeâ€ and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You donâ€™t get to call yourself â€œpro-lifeâ€ and oppose programs like Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children…The term â€œpro-lifeâ€ should be a shorthand for respect for the sanctity of life. But I will not let that label apply to people for whom sanctity for life begins at conception and ends at birth. What about the rest of life? Respect for the sanctity of life, if you believe that it begins at conception, cannot end at birth.
