A good friend of mine pointed out these sites to me. She's pretty liberal (she calls herself progressive), but she's also pro-life. She didn't use to be. She used to buy into all the liberal rhetoric for abortion. She's since learned that protecting the unborn goes well with the "fighting for the underdog" aspect of liberal politics.
"We are committed to the protection of life, which is threatened in today's world by war, the arms race, abortion, poverty, racism, capital punishment, and euthanasia. We believe that these issues are linked under a 'consistent ethic of life'. We challenge those working on all or some of these issues to maintain a cooperative spirit of peace, reconciliation, and respect in protecting the unprotected."
"First things first…why 'Leftout?' The name stems from the left-leaning philosophy espoused here, as well as the fact that progressive pro-lifers tend to feel 'left out' of both liberal and pro-life groups. That's why this site was created."
"If you're a pro-life liberal, I hope this site makes you feel a little less like the only Martian on your block."
"If you're pro-life and, shall we say, have a problem with liberals (as all too many seem to, especially on the net), I hope you will see that liberals are not the enemy, and that liberalism is not at all incompatible with a pro-life position."
"If you're pro-choice or undecided, I hope you will take the time to at least learn about a point of view you may have never heard before."
