Frank Gilbert: Life begins at conception

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Abortion is a woman's unrestricted right"?

A: Oppose. I believe life begins at conception, and growing medical and scientific advances support that view. If the unborn represents a life, we have an obligation to protect it. In providing such protection we take on extraordinary obligations to the mother. We must "make her whole" to the degree possible if we require her to carry a child to term or viability.
