Be wary when you see people lecturing endlessly about how being pro-life is about more than abortion. It is, of course. But this argument often is used by insincere people trying to sideline the evil of abortion and justify supporting an agenda that includes deliberate killing.
The pro-life movement itself is so committed to the truth that being pro-life is about more than opposing abortion. You can tell pretty easily when someone is being sincere vs. when they don’t oppose abortion at all and are using it as a weapon against pro-lifers
Last thing I’ll say on this: Giving primacy to opposing abortion among the many pro-life issues does not deny the gravity of all the others. I care a lot about plenty of policy problems, but I think abortion deserves special weight given how widespread and destructive it is.
