Well, that's convenient isn't it...that people with your opinion only restrict the meaning of PRO-LIFE, which means "For Life" to be only about humans. If they did extend it to all life, it would be as you say, which would be impossible.
I think other creatures of the earth are imbued with their own intelligence as well, and are clearly unique in their form, as we are. They may not have the same kind of awareness that we have, but they are at least in touch with their instincts and connected to the earth, which I can't say the same for most of us.
