Response to ProfessionalLeftist (Original post)

6. I do understand, I think, what he meant.

I've always thought that if a person is pro-life & views abortion as murder of an innocent person, then they should also take taht view in cases of incest and rape. Abortion from a pregnancy resulting from incest and rape is STILL murder, under a pro-lifer's original argument.

I've thought before that a pro-lifer having exceptions for incest and rape was a political statement because it sounds so cruel to a pregnant girl who has been the victim of incest.

I don't agree with those views. I am pro-choice. I didn't hear ALL of what Santorum said, but what I did hear makes more sense to me than what I usu. hear pro-life politicians say. His view is more in keeping with a pro-life view & lends authenticity to it, IMO.
