Frances Kissling's skeptical point about commonality may have some validity, though I tend to see difference from another angle.    I feel if each individual articulated a point of view to the best of their knowledge, others would be inclined to find the commonality.

If the essay below does not represent the best of my knowledge, I'm willing to refine it to reach higher commonality.
The Collateral Damage of the Pro-Life Agenda

Few would suggest abortion is a good thing.   Maybe a necessary evil, though it need not be.  There are unexplored solutions to abortion.   Instead the focus remains on the hypocrisy of the pro-life agenda.

In a prior essay I equated the word ignorance to the conservative/pro-life view point. I stated the root of the word ignorance is ignore. I would like to expand on the idea. Ignorance is not a mental deficiency. One can ignore a solution because a lack of knowledge or one can explicitly hide their intention.

I understand that people wish to be left alone and I assume many who waive the conservative flag wish to live in solitude. The problem is the elite few who glorify the term conservative to enact class warfare.  It is the same mentality which exploits the have nots of the world.

Slavery still exist as it existed in biblical time. In the United States slavery is associated with the color of skin, though history shows individuals lacking social economic means are at risk of being enslaved.

Please bare with me, I'll get to abortion. I'm about to use another term which some may find offensive, though I use it in the context it was intended. Many allude to the pro-life sincerity of loving a child until it is born. Not only do I agree, I suggest bastard is the term many conservatives use for a child born out of wedlock. The same conservative mentality believing the bible supports slavery, is the mentality which sees bastards as an opportunity for social class slavery.

I'm not suggesting all pro-life activist support this evil. Many holding the conservative / pro-life flag ignore the collateral damage out of a refusal to understand. Though I suggest a few are ignoring the collateral damage with hope to exploit the sweat equity of many bastards.

Could it be a woman lacking means understands social economic slavery and fears bringing another bastard into the world for exploitation. I don't believe any child deserves such a derogatory label. If there is a God, I pray that all children are loved to the appeasement of the highest authority.  I only wish those of religious conviction understood God's message was sent through an abandoned son.

Poor bastard never had a chance.   Think about it.   Maybe each of us should examine the collateral damage of our good intentions.

Collateral Understanding

The services of planned parenthood provides education and reduce the occurrence of unplanned conception. Thus preventing pregnancies which too many are unprepared to support. The removal of planned parenthood will introduce additional unwanted pregnancies into society causing many more legal or illegal abortions. Or it will introduce many children into an ill equipped society.
