Isnt it ironic..

Doncha think?
I would say both views are more consistent with a selfish outlook than irony, both are not mutually exclusive of course. But the former probably induces the latter therefore I would place a greater emphasis on that.

Rox, you’re better than this.

I haven’t said they’re selfish btw.

But they’re not pro life. A pro life person would be in favour of saving life. They would donate. It’s irrelevant how many others do it.

Do we give this a second thought on a daily basis, not a chance (and I include myself), you can call that a choice of ours to do the minimum or say no one is pro life or whatever but I don't really get your equivalence between abortion pro lifers as if they should be judged by a higher moral code than the rest of us, it would be a nice get out of jail card to absolve us for doing bugger all ourselves, but it is bullshit to imply they are somehow hypocrites whilst the rest of us are not.
This is a ridiculous argument Captain.

We all have lived to live, bills to pay, challenges to face.

A dead person doesn’t have any of those things. They’re dead. If you make a choice to keep your organs, that might save someone else, then you are not pro life.
