23. Disagree
They probably view a fetus as inherently "innocent"--although the more religious of them should be attacked for that belief as all humans (according to most X'ian theologies) are somehow stained with sin. Whereas they probably view people fighting in wars as not as innocent, or indeed as guilty.

EG fetus is innocent (so no abortion) whereas felon is guilty (therefore capital punishment)

As far as abortion goes. Nope. It's a private matter between a woman and her conscience for the first trimester. After that, more and more people become involved. Finally, when a fetus is viable, it's no longer her call at all. EG Roe v Wade.
