The answer to rape or incest is really determined by one's position on abortion itself. If abortion is wrong, it's always wrong. Just like murder.
"They argue that the unborn possess an independent right to life, that one would and should not do to them in the womb what would never be done to them one second after they were born alive. Wanted or unwanted, conceived in love or in violence, they are ensouled and they are people."
I realize this is a tough subject. I asked a dear Christian lady what she thought, and her immediate response was that the evil of the rape was now in the woman's womb - but that's not really the case.
A friend recently had a grandchild in less than desirable circumstances. But this child is now the light of their lives, as well as the mothers and young aunts and uncles.
And I think you'll have to admit, the ferocity of the left to hammer on this issue is not really about "cases of rape or incest", it's really about the totality of abortion. Which is pure evil, yet it's the "law of the land", passed under very shady / shaky circumstances in Roe v. Wade.
and Frank Luntz agrees.
The PC crowd also refers to "radical Islam[ists]" as "extremists in one breath, then in the next breath utter "extremist" closely juxtaposed to Christianity, thus the deadly moral equivalency argument.
Bad Christians do not represent Christianity, but what the West considers bad Muslims are actually FOLLOWING Islamic tenets. You can look it up.
But Alaska bought it, lock, stock and barrel. Now they swallowed it.
and then the Alaska legislature passed (or is about to pass) "minor misspellings are ok if voter intent can be determined".
and how is it that voter intent can be determined ? I'm not sure about that legal principle.
