Andrew Thompson is dissatisfied with the term "pro-life" to describe his ethical stances and has come up with a better term:
I propose a new term: Pro Vita Christians. It is a way of saying "for life" or "in favor of life" but without the political baggage of the term "pro-life." It is a way of affirming God's love and care for all of his creatures - from the unborn baby in the womb to the convicted killer on death row.
This is a confessional stance, to be sure. And it is sure to be unpopular with both conventional liberals and conventional conservatives. But isn't it time Christians started thinking about their stances based on theology rather than secular political ideology?
I'm a Pro Vita Christian. All the way down. Who's with me?
