    Apparently I do. I start with the most vulnerable who cannot defend themselves.

    Nice broadside there. Did I fail your litmus test for compassion? Are you using some sort of AI to mentally probe my brain if I am compassionate to all who are in need? What a shameful deflection and accusation. Just bury the fact that innocent defenseless human beings are being slaughtered by the millions.

    I wouldn't call God's written word a shameful deflection.

    I agree. I am Pro-life on all matters. Failure to protect innocent babies is equal to failure to protect innocent immigrants.

    One can oppose abortion while recognizing that criminalizing it may not be the most effective way to end it---and certainly not the most compassionate.

    Not the most compassionate to whom?

    Certainly you aren’t referring to the innocent and entirely vulnerable unborn child who can’t advocate for her own life.

    I was referring to the appalling lack of compassion these innocents receive after they are born by many who championed their right to birth

    By merely criminalizing abortion supporters can have the smug satisfaction of labeling women who have abortions as criminals. It is always easier to label someone, thereby dehumanizing her, than to do the hard work of relating to her and allowing your preconceptions to crumble.

    These young ones can overcome that.
    No overcoming abortion.

    Who exactly is implementing the 'appalling lack of compassion?"

    Legislators who cut funding for children's programs, put immigrant children in cages, cut special ed, do nothing when lead us in the water supply, etc.

    Guess who their fearsome leader Is? The most pro-his own ego president ever.

    The simple answer is no one.
    More compassion shown to all in the US than most other countries.
    But, some were born to complain -- even when they have a good thing.

    I am always surprised that voters believe Republicans want to end abortion.

    If they succeeded, what could they point to as evidence of compassion?

    I saw that Melania introduced a new fashion item to accompany the MAGA hat when she visited the border--a jacket bearing the words "I really don't care."
    It seems to typify Trump supporters, Especially after the display of cowardice we saw on Wednesday and the disgusting blasphemy of a president who made a prayer breakfast all about him and his unholy vendettas.

    So? I know several pro-life individuals who would allow exceptions for cases involving rape, incest or the life of the pregnant woman.
