Anti-Abortion vs Pro-Life

As I mentioned in m last post there is a difference between the pro-life movement and the anti-abortion movement.

For me it is simple. Pro-life is support for life at any time on the spectrum of life. This would include the obvious things like abortion and capital punishment but should also include things like torture, poverty, lack of affordable health care, nutrition, war, and other things that diminish the divine spark of the image and likeness of God.

Fr. Z has a discussion going on over on his blog about this very subject. Surf on over and join in the conversation.

  1. As I see it, the major difference between anti-abortion and pro-life movements is that anti-abortion advocates are concerned with preventing abortions, while pro-life advocates are opposed to all forms of unnatural death, including abortion, capital punishment, assisted suicide, etc. The pro-life movement, then, is multifaceted, while the anti-abortion movement focuses only on the prevention of abortions.
