inri, I am not reading your posts to be at all belligerent, and I totally don't see you as having "talked at" James. I might be biased because I completely agree with you.
James, you've posted repeatedly that many of us don't "understand" the pro-life position, but it just reads as a convenient way to write us off. Of course there might just be a gap here that can't be closed, but it really looks like you're also trying to speak for us, and making our opinions out to be something they are not.
