Abortion for Rape and Incest: Abortion for incest is cruel. Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics cover up the crime of incest, and typically send the victim back home to her rapist. Even worse, they often send her home with her rapist, the same criminal who brought her to the clinic.

Abortion for incest:

  • emboldens a criminal to rape his young relative;
  • helps him escape being caught;
  • tempts him to repeat his crime; and,
  • is not compassionate because it kills a baby and increases the woman's suffering.

Personhood for the unborn helps people understand there are no hard cases when deciding to protect a baby. You don't kill a baby because her father is a criminal. Similar tragedies result from non-incestuous rape. Clinics nationwide refuse to comply with mandatory reporting laws for suspected child rape. In Sherri's state, Colorado pro-lifers brought audiotaped evidence of that failure to Colorado's attorney general's office, and Republican John Suthers chooses to look the other way.

By tragically promoting politicians who advocate killing a child whose father is a criminal, the pro-life industry undermines the public's understanding of the unalienable God-given right to life of the innocent. The lie of abortion being justifiable for rape is what unleashed the slaughter of the innocents in the first place, as in Mississippi in 1966 and Colorado and California in 1967. Christians will never end "legalized" abortion as they tolerate and even defend laws that further entrench the very foundation of the abortionist argument. So.... Do something good with your vote: Personhood!

Personhood will reduce crimes against women and children. Such powerful arguments notwithstanding, Bethany IS the strongest argument!
