This is a very well argued position and, indeed, captures the sentiment of many pro-lifers who not only support a child's right to birth but also the welfare of their lives and their mothers'. Some pro-life conservatives may disagree with Stoker that that position requires support of government programs and instead prefer to do it themselves.
For example, I give you Heather's House, run by Chicago-based Aid for Women, where expectant mothers can find a caring, loving home up to and including those difficult times after birth. They're not alone.
I would add to Stoker's argument that a genuine liberal position also supports life in the womb. But Stoker's basically right; being pro-life doesn't necessarily mean that you are liberal or conservative.
