It’s not a new argument, and we’ve most recently seen Linda Sarsour resurrect it after Alabama’s governor signed the state’s new Human Rights Protection Act; how can you claim to be pro-life if you’re also pro-death penalty?

Plenty stepped up to give her the correct answer to that question, plus, she also learned that a lot of conservatives oppose the death penalty. What she’ll never answer, though, is the antithesis to her own question: how can you oppose the death penalty but be pro-abortion?

A lot of news outlets shared their hot takes on the governor presiding over an execution so soon after signing an anti-abortion bill into law. Here’s the Los Angeles Times’ take, for one:

On Saturday, Jake Tapper stepped in to give a little bit more detail about the prisoner who was executed and why:

“I thought some facts about the case and a moment for the victims was worth 5 tweets.”

Thanks, Jake, for stirring things up again. He left things up in the air just enough to rekindle the debate over abortion and the death penalty.

Tell that to Bernie Sanders.

Why? What did the unborn baby do?

So what do people like Sarsour say to conservatives who are both pro-life and anti-death penalty?
