Hypocrisy Rantings

I have a lot of things swirling in my mind. They’ve been swirling for days so it’s time to write them down and hope they will leave my mind because I’m tired of having conversations with myself…

Ok, here goes my rant – hypocrisy. By definition, hypocrisy is the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform.

My hypocrisy rant is directed at people that call themselves “pro-life”. It seems to me that they’re only pro-life when it comes to abortion. The only time that they get upset and scream about life is when it regards a fetus. There is radio silence when it regards any other loss of life.

If you are truly pro-life then you would also be against wars and for sensible gun rights.

If you are truly pro-life then you would care that almost 16 million children in the US live in poverty and you would be working to alleviate that instead of trying to take away food stamps from families.

If you are truly pro-life then you would not expect a DACA recipient to be kicked out of the only country they’ve ever known.

If you are truly pro-life then you would not diminish other women for wearing a pussy hat and attending a march, which by the way is a pussy-CAT hat and not a vagina hat!

If you are truly pro-life then you would not be angry at people that are protesting for social justice and equality.

If you are truly pro-life then you would be against breaking up families for deportation and instead help work on a path to a legal status and citizenship.

If you are truly pro-life then you would not shame and try to convert gay people because you would know that that’s how God made them.

If you are truly pro-life then you would not use your “high moral ground” to put other people down, instead you would lovingly help lift them up.

If you are truly pro-life then you would be outraged that white nationalists are holding rallies and you would squash any act of racism.

If you are truly pro-life then you would agree that climate change is real and that we are killing our planet – the only planet we have to live on!

If you are truly pro-life then your heart would break at all the wildlife loss and extinction happening right now on our lands and in our oceans.

If you are truly pro-life then you would be against polluting our rivers, soil, and air to feed the greed of the fossil fuel industry.

If you are truly pro-life then you would worry about the kind of world you are leaving for the next generation.

You would not be selfish.

You would not only think of making things better for yourself.

You would not turn a blind eye because it doesn’t affect you.

If you are truly pro-life then you would care about ALL life – human, animal, and insect. Not just a life that is not even born yet…
