Parental Consent: Through the Eyes of a Post-Abortion Teen

Prolife Except in the Case of Rape?

“What about a woman who is pregnant due to rape or incest?” This is one of three hard cases often cited as “exceptions” that make abortion an appropriate alternative. (The other two are when the life of the mother is threatened or the child has a serious handicap or deformity.)
