Recent article: the October 27 issue of The American Conservative had an article entitled "Pro-life Means Anti-drone." It makes the connection between abortion and drones in that they both use similar excuses for killing innocent children. This is a marvelous example of transcending political labels, something necessary for ending societal approval of different kinds of violence.
