Dear Mainstream Media,

Please stop referring to politicians who take an anti-abortion stance as "pro-life." In reality, the only thing most of these politicians have in common is that they oppose abortion. However, the vast majority of them are also pro-war, pro-death penalty, and anti-social justice. If we're going to be technically accurate here, that makes them more pro-death than pro-life. The only lives that they all agree are worth saving are those of human fetuses. The lives of women that are threatened by medical complications involved in taking a pregnancy to full term? No sanctity there. The lives of citizens of countries that oppose us politically? Collateral damage. So really, it's not just inaccurate to refer to Stupak and his ilk as "pro-life;" it's straight-up dishonest.

Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    I can't believe MSNBC just keeps calling Stupak "pro-life." I was practically shouting at the TV every time they repeated it during coverage of his press conference. I mean, I expect that from Fox, but MSNBC? Disappointing.
