Palin Opposed Abortion For Victims Of Rape Or Incest.
According to ABC News, “McCain supports abortion in instances of rape or incest, but Palin, a mother of a 5-month-old infant with Down syndrome, said she would advocate abortion only if a mother’s life was in danger. ‘My personal opinion is that abortion [should be] allowed if the life of the mother is endangered. Please understand me on this. I do understand McCain’s position on this. I do understand others who are very passionate about this issue who have a differing opinion,’ she said.” [ABC News, 9/12/08]
