Are You Truly Pro-Life?

According to the UNICEF report "Patterns in conflict: Civilians are now the target" the UN Secretary-General's expert on the impact of armed conflict on children Gra├ža Machel states that "Armed conflict kills and maims more children than soldiers,"

How can Pro-War be reconciled with being Pro-Life?

How is it that the far right political candidates are at the same time both war mongers and staunchly pro-life?

Why is the Biblical mandate to avoid the shedding of innocent blood, which is at the heart of the Pro-Life movement, not equally applied to war?

These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Proverbs 6:16-19 (KJV)

Peace, Love, and Light!
