It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter.

Creationists? What is a creationist? Womb-Nazis? What is a womb-nazi?
A pro-lifer calling a pro-choicer a baby killer is tantamount to a pro-choicer calling a pro-lifer an anti-choicer, or a womb-Nazi etc. What makes you think you are the only ones that should be allowed to choose what you call people? Furthermore, since abortion does kill babies the term baby-killer is appropriate, while the term pro-choice is utter nonsense.
A fetus is not a baby.

The only rapes I know of are the men you send to prison for choosing to use drugs that are raped and murdered there by the drugs dealers you send to prison to rape and murder them.

A fetus is not a baby.
When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her unborn baby. Alcohol in the mother's blood passes through the placenta to the baby through the umbilical cord. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and a range of lifelong disorders, known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). There is no known safe time to drink alcohol during pregnancy. Drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy can cause the baby to have abnormal facial features. Growth and central nervous system problems (e.g., low birth weight, behavioral problems) can occur from drinking alcohol anytime during pregnancy. The baby’s brain is developing throughout pregnancy and can be damaged at any time.
If a woman is drinking alcohol during pregnancy, it is never too late to stop. The sooner a woman stops drinking, the better it will be for both her baby and herself.

<quoted text>Only a female fetus is a woman, as are all other female humans. Adolescents are not called young adults. Young adults are called young adults.
A young/prime adult, according to Erik Erikson's stages of human development, is generally a person in the age range of 20 to 40, whereas an adolescent is a person aging from 13 to 19, although definitions and opinions vary. The young adult stage in human development precedes middle adulthood. A person in the middle adulthood stage ages from 40 to 64.

Late term abortion mistake births are persons under the 14th Amendment. Killing a child born in an abortion clinic is murder upheld by recent court decision.

Poor women often do Not know they are pregnant as US does NOT have universal healthcare as is available in the UK.

Republicans love the fetus but hate the child once born.
Republicans feel universal health care would deprive the rich of 7th or 8th vacation homes.
Being a Christian and a republican is contradictory

Neither is a 10 year old.

But if you kill either, you eliminate their reproductive rights.

But I forgot - you do not defend reproductive choice.

So you wouldn't mind, even if Roe v. Wade were overturned.

Only those mature enough to reproduce have reproductive rights.

Your twist of what I said only serves to highlight your dishonesty.

A unmarried creationist troll that denies the fact of evolution, does not have any say in the personal choices that women make.

Religious pieces of sh*t will always be ignored until they provide proof of their god.

Doing this earns them the right to provide scientific evidence behind their stupid, egocentric & arrogant beliefs.
