If a woman wants to have a baby or not, it's strictly her business (not the state's). Sarah Palin, John McCain's choice for vice president, doesn't sanction abortions even in the case of incest or rape.
If I were a woman, I wouldn't want to bring a hopelessly sick or deformed baby into the world and have the child suffer through a short, painful life, just to show I'm a bona fide right-to-lifer. How selfish and cruel of me.
I don't see any disconnect where a person who values the sanctity of life might choose to have an abortion and prevent a baby from suffering. While the choice would be a difficult one, in some cases it might be the most humane, "Christian" thing to do.
(And I'm not for aborting gays.) (Society desperately needs us.)
