20. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

I believe the one true God, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I also believe people have the right to worship in the church of their choice. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman.

I believe in our freedom and protecting our freedom.
