Pro-lifers wanting the power to impose their own opinion onto others by stripping them of their reproductive and legal rights. Tough luck. For the sake of discussion, I'm willing to take your opinions into consideration, but when it comes down to my reproductive choices, I simply don't care what you think.
I don't think the bolded part is fair. I think most pro-lifers genuinely just have very strong convictions regarding helping the helpless. In the instance of abortion at least.
EDIT Enjoy your dinner and keep this discussion out of your mind while you're enjoying your mom's company
