Your argument provides fodder to the fallacy that the pro-life crowd (often conflated implying the two are mutually exclusive) don't care about life once it's born.
Both arguments are fallacy.
Just because someone holds an opinion on one topic doesn't mean they don't have the right intentions on another.

It wasn't a good war at all. It started with imperialism and a megalomaniac and saw millions of people die and put the world at a halt to rebuild civilization. It also gave birth to another terrifying war one which put the entire world on edge.
Ummm...where in all that justification...is the acknowledgement that human beings are the quintessential apex predator species on this planet.
War is neither good or bad...it simply reflects the innate behaviors...inherent in the species...
The irony...sir...is when we falsely think we've risen above...evolved beyond...resolution by conflict... It's much better for the psyche of the individual and species...to recognize and accept...to understand and express the truth about either societal or individual angst amidst interaction...
I've articulated harmony and compassion hundreds of times in hundreds of threads on this very site...over a hundred of my own creation...but I never once not dared to look in the mirror and recognize all the myriad aspects that imbue an singular character...I like that In one hand I hold an olive branch...and in the other a sword...and am content...
