Is all life sacred?

Which one sounds right: the "right to choose"; "reproductive rights"; "pro-life"; "anti-abortion"? One of the biggest pre-referendum fights in 2010 was over the right to life (that was eventually enshrined in Article 27). I won't go into the arguments for or against the "abortion clause" because it will simply invite the unhinged onto this placid place. Instead, please consider the irony of those who are adamantly opposed to the termination o pregnancies in all circumstances because, they argue, all life is sacred are the same ones who champion an-eye-for-an-eye punishments, including the imposition and execution of the death penalty for any person that terminates a pregnancy, including the woman whose pregnancy has been terminated. Clearly, to them, not all life is sacred.
