In many situations I’m hesitant to use the term “pro-life,” as for a lot of people it really means nothing more than “anti-abortion.”
Gee, we wonder why. Could it be because THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS!!!
To be pro-life should mean doing all that one can to protect life from the womb to the death bed.

and not engage in a “shoot first, ask questions later” foreign policy.
Lib-speak for "No matter how or how much you harm us, we'll not respond in any significant way. We'll let the UN pass resolutions that we all know you'll ignore, or some variation on that theme".
