Why do many pro-life people find abortions in case of “rape or incest” specifically acceptable?


Now, rape is a pretty understandable one. But what’s incest got to do with it? If two cousins or siblings have consensual sex and the woman gets pregnant, why should an abortion be allowed in that case if it wouldn’t be for an unrelated couple? And if the sex was non-consensual, that’s already covered…

Because, incest, like rape, is a crime. Your assumption that incest is consensual, or usually consensual between siblings or cousins is simply false. Not saying it doesn’t happen, but incest is not typically two related teenage kids experimenting, it’s usually an older man; father, uncle, grandfather, cousin, against a younger girl.

This is also why statutory rape is a crime, because a child under a certain age, boy or girl, cannot lawfully give consent.

It is about the ethics of the sanctity of life, all life. When does life begin or better yet when does a fetus or unborn child gain a soul? The simplest answer is at the beginning. If life begins at conception, then that life is precious (no matter how it came to be) and should be covered under all laws and rights. Therefore, abortion is murder. However, if life does not begin until full birth, partial birth is just the removing a tumor from the womb. As long as there is no conclusive proof, this war of words will rage on.

That’s a good question actually. I suppose it has something to do with the possibility that children from incest will have serious birth defects. But of course lots of other things can cause birth defects, but nobody makes exceptions for those.

Because babies born from to similarly genetic parents are at a higher risk for birth defects (around 14% for siblings I think), this chance increases every generation of incest (so if a brother and sister of parents that were siblings had a child, it would have a higher deformity chance than they did.)

I do not doubt it. If abortion is outlawed within the USA the youngsters of professional and anti abortionist might secretly ship them out of the nation for abortions. I’m now not announcing all, I am announcing a few. Having a teenage pregnant daughter, with a few, is a larger embarrassment then having to are living with a abortion for the relaxation in their lives. The greatest hypocrites I recognise are those that forget about their possess selves.

This is not my belief, but I believe the answer to your question is probably because incest a lot of times creates babies with birth defects.

Not all Pro-Life people hold to that. If someone says abortion is just in ANY case, that person is NOT pro-life by definition.

Because they see you as an example of what happens when incest is involved.

they are trying to find some compromise with the pro-abortion crowd, but there is no such compromise
