Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
When the mother's life is imminently threatened with full term pregnancy. Some would include rape & incest. But it's not the child's fault. In any case, I would hate to end the life, given by God, whom we know oftentimes works in mysterious ways. All life is precious. A series of miracles occurs with every birth. We must rekindle respect for life that God has given us. My granddaughter is an example of a high-risk pregnancy, which the doctor recommended abortion. The decision to proceed with the pregnancy gave us a wonderful, smart grandaughter, whom is now highly sought by Duke and Harvard Universities. Thank God.

Additional comment from candidate:
I am a non-politician, who is tired of seeing my country spiraling downward. I am running for Alabama's Second Congressional District. I have the necessary fortitude to stand against liberal/progressivism, which is against the American way of living set out in our constitution.
