The last half of your post was just Republican talking points having nothing to do with the discussion.
I posited that a prolifer cannot believe in absolute protection of life AND be a proponent of the Death Penalty. It is an oxymoronic philosophy. Further that person cannot also support war. Sorry, you can't just be KINDA for LIFE. THAT is what you are squirming around trying to avoid looking straight at.
I can understand that. If I tried to stake out two opposing moral positions I too would be bothered and try and deny it.
As for my personal philosophy, or that of most liberals that I know, I don't know of any who have that kind of philosophical conundrum.
You can assert that, but you have no proof or evidence. You might believe that a "prolifer cannot", but what you mean is that a "prolifer should not, but because many do they are morally inferior."
Your problem is you consider abortion and capital punishment equivalent moral dilemmas.And then you dare to include killing in warfare among them. Here we have an example of the straw man argument again as well as making the perfect be the enemy of the good. And that is Democrat talking points, but hardly reason.
