Who is really pro-life, anyway?

The archbishop says no communion for Kathleen Sebelius. Will he also withhold Jesus from politicians who voted for the war in Iraq, causing thousands upon thousands of deaths? From those who are pro-death penalty? From those who would cut welfare benefits for mothers who did not have abortions? From those who think healthcare for God's children should remain a for-profit enterprise? Should those who would shut down the tent cities of poor and homeless citizens remain in full communion? Does a "pro-life" position give one a free pass on all other life issues? Come to think of it, can we truly call such politicians pro-life at all? I'm just asking. Let's keep asking.
