It seems like pro-life politicians are hearing the “gotcha” question from reporters more and more: what’s your position on abortion in the case of rape?
Perhaps pro-lifers can say something along these lines:
I had no control over the circumstances of how I was conceived, but I’m glad to be alive, grateful for the opportunity to live in this world. Since I’m glad to be alive myself, I want other people to have the chance to live, too. So for me, this is a question of the golden rule.
The kids conceived in those circumstances had no more control over how they were conceived than you or me, and I don’t think they deserve the death penalty for those circumstances.
