What is pro-life?

Dear Editor:

As a devout atheist, I am humbled by Benedictine nun Sister Joan Chittister's insight concerning abortion, as well as our Pope Francis' progressive, realistic views of individuals and their right to be themselves.

This is a far cry from what had hardened me to the damage done to mankind in the form of the many superstitions created by man, each with the title of a different God or phantom of some sort as the omnipotent end all.

Following are the words of Sister Joan Chittister:

"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born, but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there.

That's not pro life. That's pro birth. We need a broader conversation on what pro life is."
