"American soldier gets killed: "Oh my, pass the potatoes."
Fetus is aborted: "biggest crime against humanity!"
But, for the most part service men and women CHOOSE to join the armed forces with the full knowledge of the possible dangers involved; they play war games and everything. And if they are drafted, men are supposed to protect their land. That's part of their God-given roles in society. Tiny babies, or fetuses, do not choose to be conceived. It's not their fault that the parents had unprotected sex. Therefore, they shouldn't be punished for someone else's mistake.
There's no comparison between babies and servicemen.
