Perhaps. I can understand this, especially if the pro-lifer in question was never exposed to critical feedback on the issue. But how can a potential baby that does not yet have a will of its own be 'helpless'? There is no being to help.
After you explained said this over and over again to a pro-lifer, what explains their continued belief that what they are doing is out of love or a desire to help? The only thing they are loving is their own ideology. There is no other will to be the recipient of their love.
