“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”

So what? There’s always Catholic clergy or prominent lay people who’ll say stuff like this.
What she says is true as far as it goes but still totally misses the point.
Of course a consistent life ethic is not merely pro-birth. Duh.
Sound judgement is what is called for. IMHO it’s not sound judgement to say this kind of thing as long as the world is chock-full of people who are looking for excuses for the abortions they or their relatives have had or performed.
