"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."

We hear the phrase "pro-life" a lot from radical anti-abortion activists. Many are not truly pro-life since they don't value the fetus conceived by rape or incest as they do others. They are not truly pro-life since they are willing to execute criminals -- their lives don't count. They are not truly pro-life since they advocate war -- lives of "enemies" don't count.
Bush has moved toward a truly pro-death stance with his veto of the SCHIP bill. He is willing to spend billions for war, but the cost of health insurance for those who are not wealthy (or don't have taxpayer funded health care, as he does) is too expensive.
If one thinks that one can afford to kill but can't afford health care to save lives, then one is truly PRO-DEATH!
