Let's Think For A Minute

I was at a dinner this weekend during which a brief discussion took place regarding the same subject matter as this piece by Lionel Shriver of the UK's Guardian; South Dakota's attempt to ban all abortions. There is much to discuss here, but right now my interest is with respect to the following statement in the piece, which echoed a comment made at dinner: The term "pro-life" could not be less apt. (Enjoy the irony that many a "pro-lifer" also supports capital punishment.) I am curious. How many out there truly see no moral distinction between taking the life of a murderer, and taking the life of a soon-to-be-born baby? I mean, really. Forget about the other considerations on both sides of this argument for the time being and tell me, if you are pro-choice, do you agree that it is "ironic" (read: "hypocritical"?) that one can support capital punishment and also be anti-abortion?
