Sister Joan Chittister, a Benedictine Nun, sums up the GOP anti-abortion hypocrites in her new book titled “Joan Chittister: Her Journey from Certainty to Faith.”

The quote was first lifted from an interview Chittister did with Bill Moyers on PBS back in 2004. Although its over 10 years old, the message is still powerfully relevant and directly attacks the hypocrisy of anti-abortion policies as legislated from the Christian right:

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 much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.

  7. Thanks for your blog post. Things i would like to bring up is that computer system memory is required to be purchased should your computer can’t cope with what you do with it. One can mount two RAM boards containing 1GB each, as an illustration, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should check the manufacturer’s documentation for the PC to be sure what type of storage is needed.
