Mark Zaccaria on Abortion
Zaccaria: Strongly Agree
Question topic: Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?
Zaccaria: yes, only under immediate threat to the life of the mother.
"No Federal Funding for Abortion" should also include Military Hospitals.
A: "Safe, Legal--and Rare." A woman's access to basic medical care, more specifically the right to choose that care, has become one of the great political issues of the last 30 years. I believe that in its simplest form choice is a question between a woman and her doctor.
I believe many people understand that choosing to carry a pregnancy to term and offering a baby for adoption can be the correct choice. I believe that we also must understand that it is not always so. Many of us recall the back alleys of the 1960's. As a father of two daughters, I will not risk a return to those days of less than full and proper medical care for women.
Roe v. Wade is stare decisis: in plain English, settled law upon which future abortion decisions must be based. I will stand up to insure that all women regardless of race or class have full and unfettered access to the first rate medical care that all in America believe our citizens deserve.
