49. My Only Point Was This
I am sure that there are indeed, as an earlier poster claims, some pro-life folks who don't care about children after they are born and who are completely insensitive when shown graphic pictures of dead, dying, or injured children in Iraq.

But I am also sure that there are some folks who say that they are pro-choice who, while expressing all sorts of concerns for dead, dying, and injured children in Iraq, are completely insensitive when shown graphic photographs showing the results of abortion, or the more grusome procedures sometimes used in late-term abortions.

That was really my only point.

ANd I do appreciate the views of those who have written to this thread.
