Frank Gilbert on Abortion

 

 


Only allow abortion for rape, incest, and maternal life

Q: Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Gilbert: To save the mother's life and in cases of rape or incest.

Q: What in the nature of mankind caused America's Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Gilbert: Men tend to naturally consolidate power and then use/abuse it. The Constitution was designed to provide limits on such power and to provide the checks and balances that would keep one person or group from acquiring too much power.

Life begins at conception

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Abortion is a woman's unrestricted right"?

A: Oppose. I believe life begins at conception, and growing medical and scientific advances support that view. If the unborn represents a life, we have an obligation to protect it. In providing such protection we take on extraordinary obligations to the mother. We must "make her whole" to the degree possible if we require her to carry a child to term or viability.
