personally I think we need to be consistent in the value we place on a human life. If a child is to be aborted because a grown man raped a child/teenager then he too should be executed. I do not see the moral justification for terminating the result of the iniquity but allowing the perpetrator of the crime to walk away and at worst be some-body's wife in prison for a few years.
Having said that I am not a fan of the death penalty because there is no conclusive proof that it is an effective deterrent to committing certain crimes and secondly innocent people have been executed which makes a mockery of the whole process. I therefore am pro life on that basis as well as others such as there is no scientific proof as to when life begins i.e at birth or conception or half way in between and therefore every abortion could potentially be murder.
I feel that governments and/or governors should be concentrating their efforts on providing adequate positive support to the victim and the baby and undertaking measures to prevent this type of crime from happening.
