Comment: I'm also pro life

(See in situ)

I'm also pro life

but these 2 comments made me wonder:
Brigger said, "In the case of life, you are not allowed to take/harm someone else's life."

Wistfulthinker said, "But if a pregnancy threatened my life, I'd weigh the odds and choose."

What about self defense? Everyone pretty much agrees that if someone is about to shoot you, you have a right to protect yourself and kill your would-be killer.

In the case of a pregnancy that would jeopardize a mother's life, doesn't the mother have the right to protect herself from inevitable death against the known assailant? This is something I've never thought of in this way before and really look forward to responses.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
