Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

In cases of Rape and incest, and when the life of the mother is in jeopardy due to the pregnancy.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

The executive, legislative, judicial branches are in place to ensure the rights of the people, to protect individual freedoms, prevent the government from abusing its power, and to adjudicate with fairness.
