Abortion in the Case of Rape

Posted by Matt Postiff September 12, 2013 on Matt Postiff's Blog under GeneralĀ 

Today I happened upon an interview of Billy Graham by Larry King. I was taken aback by his answer to a question about abortion in the case of violent rape. The question at 10:40 was, what is "your stand on abortion in the case of violent rape"? Graham's answer starts at 11:40:

I would be for abortion in violent rape. I am against abortion...except in cases of violent rape and in cases where the mother's life is in danger.

Now, this is not meant to be a Graham-bashing post. I will let the facts speak for themselves for this particular interview. This post rather is meant to challenge you to re-think the issue of abortion in such a case, and I use Graham's statement as a template that probably fits many people who believe the same way he does.

So, do you support abortion in the case of rape?

One more question: would you support capital punishment for the rapist?
