Abortion: Thatcher: Just because abortion should be legal in those relatively rare cases of rape or incest, it should only be last resort. The mental (as well as physical) well-being of the mother should take into consideration not only the trauma of rape or incest but also the additional mental trauma of killing an innocent child. Adoption should be given strong consideration. Generally, elective, non-medically necessary surgeries should not be publicly funded.
Fagan: Endorsed by planned parenthood.
