To be fully pro-life I must broaden my sense of morality and embrace a wider agenda”

Scott Arbeiter in the NYT:

Of course, my being pro-life never meant not caring about education or jobs, but I suspect like many people, I tended to see these as unrelated issues. Being pro-life has always been a deeply moral question; it still is. However, I now see that to be fully pro-life I must broaden my sense of morality and embrace a wider agenda.

My maturing pro-life views have also caused me to examine how I grapple with the question of war, nuclear proliferation and other causes I never used to consider pro-life. And it causes me to ask more of pro-life candidates and officials before I offer my full support.
