polls show most people are in favor of abortion in cases of incest and rape. I believe it should be allowed for that as well. The problem is the redefinition and enforcement.

Come Election 2012, the Democratic Party had better put this in several campaign commercials to remind women voters exactly what they would be supporting if they decided to vote for one of these despicable republicans.

In forcible rape, the victim shares absolutely NO responsibility. In date rape, the victim should share some of the responsibility. And before you yell at me, I've been the victim of both. The first time, I was with someone I shouldn't have been and somewhere I shouldn't have been doing something I shouldn't have been. In the second, I had no choice from beginning to end. And the witch from NARAL has no business comparing forcible rape to underage consensual sex. If the girl is old enough to consent & her body is mature enough to give birth, then that's NOT even close. I personally believe abortions should be ONLY for mother's health, forcible rape [violence] or incest involving a minor or force [violence].

Here's another example of why:

Sure, I believe your phony story, which is actually a commercial for anti-abortion.

Here is a better approach:
If you are opposed to abortion, learn about sex, and the consequences.

If you are prone to make up stories to trivialize rape, go shit in your hat and pull it over your ears.
