Why Do Christian Conservatives Claim To Be "Pro-Life" And Yet Support The Death Penalty?

Never understood that one.

The death penalty is not unjustified, while abortion is unjustified, from the fetus's perspective, considering that it should have a right to a life. That is the key difference. An innocent fetus has a right to life, while someone who has done something so heinous that they are considered a danger to exist in society, has lost their right to live. Obviously that is such a severe punishment that it is reserved for people who have seriously damaged society.

Once you commit a capital crime you have proven that you aren't an innocent person worthy of being saved. A fetus hasn't done anything to not be considered innocent. Hope that clears it up.

When you commit a capital crime and get a death penalty it is because society has deemed you too dangerous for itself and beyond the point where you can actually reflect on your actions and change. A foetus is living being apart from the mothers body so killing it is murder .

In conclusion Christians are against abortion because it is murder and are for the death penalty because it is justice. (Sorry if i made some fault I am still learning english)

It seems strange to consider life so sacred that there is absolutely no way we can allow abortion, but also recognize that humans are so bad that they need to be wiped out sometimes.

Saved? There's a very large difference between "saving" someone from a natural disaster or a freak accident and intentionally putting them to death. We are talking about intentionally killing people. How is intentionally killing anybody "pro-life" you silly word clown? And why have you failed to acknowledge that some of the people put to death are completely innocent? You are fine with the state murdering innocent people, but have a problem with the abortion of embryos because they are "innocent"?

Dumbass.

You aren't very bright. Why do you ask questions that you don't want to hear the answer to?

Because "pro life" has nothing to do with adults. I know that preschool logic is hard for you, but do try to keep up.

When a person is convicted of capital murder they deserve the Death Penalty but how you tie a child into the scenario only your twisted mind would know !
