This topic dominates political discussion on this board. Let's get the truth out. For simplicity I'm grouping two positions together: Against Abortion 1) In all cases 2) Except when the life of the mother is at stake Pro Abortion 1) In all cases 2) In any other case except when the mother's life is at stake. In other words, the Against abortion position only would allow abortion in that fraction of 1% case in which the mother's life is at risk. The Pro Abortion case would allow abortion in other cases.
