For the larger part Pro-life as a movement has nothing to do with any actual concern for any life. If it did they would have a much more supportive social policy. The pro-life movement is a cleverly designed movement interested only in forcing people into what they view as proper sexual morality and nothing more.
But at all of these dinners they serve meat! I'm a vegan, so I discuss this with her and it's usually the same answer: Animals don't have souls.]
All I see here are is one person trying to out holier-than-thou the other. In short, Preachy, meet Preachier.
This clearly places any Christian who eats fast food or almost any store-bought meat in a category of direct dissension from their god. They are to be the champions of anti-animal cruelty yet they decide to champion Chix-Fil-A instead!
Ezekiel 34:2-4. Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of
themselves! Should not the shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds,
clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you did
not take care of the flock! You have not strengthened the weak or healed the
sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched
for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally.
I have to assume then,that entertaining any idea that plants have a consciousness,an awareness, that could be considered akin to a soul, also does not compute in your reality of the world? Nature is what it is,and we are apart of nature on this planet. That despite your holier than thou attitude.
This is YOUR interpretation of pro life and imho does not give you right to chastise anti abortion advocates that do not conform to your choice of lifestyle.
You have all the right in the world to push your agenda if you so chose but to me it sounds like your grasping for straws on this one. Find a better way to promote being a vegan then the "holier-than-thou" attitude. It's very unbecoming and only hurts your agenda. Just look at the negative reactions thus far on this thread alone.

At the risk of appearing stupid, could you explain your last paragraph, as it has gone over my head?

Oh, most definitely. It goes for anyone with an agenda. There are right and wrong ways of doing anything. Gain your support through the positive aspects of your agenda. It will go a lot further.
