Bill Jones: Pro-life except in cases of rape, incest, or maternal health

Like most Americans, I have a deep and abiding belief in the value of all life -- including that of the unborn, the disabled and the elderly. I struggle with the abortion issue, seeking to find the best way to reconcile the competing considerations and different viewpoints. Recognizing that there are people of good will on both sides of this difficult issue, my view could best be characterized as predominantly pro-life except in cases of rape, incest, or when the motherís life is endangered.

Bill Jones: Oppose partial birth; support parental notification

I oppose partial birth abortions and support parental notification when an abortion is being considered by anyone under 18 years old. It is not my intention to impose my personal beliefs on abortion, and I will not use this issue as a litmus test for judges or other policy decisions. It is my contention that Senator Boxer has inappropriately applied a litmus test regarding this issue to judicial appointments.
