A Pro-lifer's Resource for Pro-choice Accusations

Remember this joke?

A new convict got bunked up with a lifer. After lights-out, a convict from a few cells down shouts out, "43." The lifer starts laughing. The newbie doesn't understand the laughter.

A couple of minutes later, a different convict at the other end of the block yells out, "14." The whole block breaks up in laughter.

The newbie gets confused at this point and asks the lifer, "Why is everyone laughing?" The lifer says, "We've all been here so long that we've heard all of the jokes. So we just number them and shout out the number. It saves time."

So, the newbie, trying to fit in, yells, "5." No one laughs. The lifer rolls over in his bunk and huffs, "Some people just can't tell a joke right."

Now, what does this have to do with the title? As a resource to fellow pro-lifers --and perhaps a call for pro-choicers to come up with better arguments-- I'll be compiling a resource of all of the accusations pro-choicers direct against us pro-lifers. It won't be that long --because, so far, there haven't been many new arguments-- but it will hopefully be helpful the next time your pro-choice co-horts accuse you of something.

And, hopefully, It'll help your timing.
