Pro-life Green gets coverage

From time to time I have engaged in discussion with Greens and potential Greens who don't understand why we are pro-choice. "You're against violence, surely you must be against abortion, as it is the ultimate violence."

I understand this position. I don't agree with it because it ain't that simple. If abortion were outlawed then women who did not want to bear a child would be forced to carry a pregnancy to term. In addition, the only way to enforce such a law would be to incarcerate both the doctor and patient.

Even so, I do understand why folks don't see eye to eye on the issue. One who doesn't agree with that position is Joe Schriner. An article from Grove City, PA explains a bit about Schriner, and a bit about the Green Party. Schriner is quoted saying "at the convention, the majority of Green Party members I talked with were willing to listen,". I think this reflects well on us, and while I don't see my state voting for Schriner, I am glad to see that we are getting a better reception from the Gravy Train media.
