Spare me, will you kindly, your “pro-life” talk if you believe war is the answer and the outrageously obscene military budget in our country can be justified.

Please do not tell me you are “pro-life” if you support the Trump administration’s efforts to squash legal asylum at ports of entry, where it is being documented many of our fellow human beings are, quite literally, fleeing death.

And finally, if you are in any way in favor of economic and social policies that benefit the already-rich and powerful, while doing next to little in terms of alleviating poverty and homelessness, keeping clean our air and water, feeding hungry children here in our own country, and ensuring universal health care as a right, you, my friend, are not “pro-life.”
