"Compassionate Conservativism" or "Culture of Life"

A man was arrested by the FBI for soliciting the murders of Michael Schiavo and Judge Green (and another one was arrested arming himself to stage a violent "rescue"). Canadian Cynic wants to know how to reconcile these with "pro-life." Me, too.

In other news, the pro-life camp is trumpeting what they claim is evidence that Terri Sciavo is communicating: in response to the question "do you want to live?" she made noises that could possibly be interpreted as the words "I want...." But the pro-lifers are ignoring the possibility that, even if she is aware and is trying to communicate, and succeeding, after all this time, that she was saying "I want to die." Then, what?
