If you were really Pro-Life...
Excuse me, Mr. President. But I am really Pro-Life and I know a lot of other people who are. I don't know one pro-life person who is vengeful or hateful. But I do know a lot of them who are prayerful, calm, but immovable. What you and those in your audience need to understand is that we pro-lifers exactly don't want to put every woman and doctor who has had or has performed an abortion in jail. We recognize that the term "Pro-Choice" is a false name. Most women have abortions because they have no choice. Many women have serious trauma after their abortions, as well they should. Guilt is not always a bad thing. Sometimes it is your conscience waking you up. We want it illegal going forward but to embrace those who in the past may have taken part in abortions under the assumption they were moral and legal, and especially those who were forced against their will.
Just a side note. I'm not so sure those protesters did more good than harm. We need to pick our battles wisely.
