"..kill her unborn baby.." Is an emoting phrase. Terminating a pregnancy must be the personal responsibility of the pregnant woman regardless of your value judgement of the result.

Unless, of course, personal responsibility is not a Conservative value. Is that your position?

Is it the Conservative position that the state should control all sexual activity - with whom, whether or not licensed, appliances incorporated, associated medical procedures, disposition of resulting children -?
