Person 1: Pro-lifers are hypocrites who don’t care about people after they’re born. Person 2 (our hero): I’m sorry you’ve had bad experiences with pro-lifers. I agree that our concern for people shouldn’t end at birth.

Person 1: Pro-lifers’ real goal is to control women’s sex lives. Person 2 (our hero): I’m sorry you’ve had bad experiences with pro-lifers. I want to help pregnant moms and their kids no matter how the pregnancies started.Person 1: There are already too many kids in the foster system. Do you really want to add more? Person 2 (our hero): I’m concerned about those kids too, but there is actually no shortage of good prospective parents waiting to adopt newborns.Person 1: What about a mom with many kids who can’t take care of another? Person 2 (our hero): I want moms and kids to thrive. But let me ask a weird question; bear with me.

Person 2 (our hero): I care a ton about kids after birth, and I agree that we should focus on actual, living people. But biologically speaking, a fetus is already alive.
