Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Medical risks to mother or child. I think that we should focus efforts on helping adopt out healthy children. If the mother is medically able to birth the child and there is a happy and healthy home for that child, no child should ever be aborted.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Raised a Lutheran, my son was baptized a Lutheran. I believe Jesus Christ died for our sins. I do not attend church regularly, but do not feel I need to routinely attend church to life righteously according to the good book.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.
