"She makes this claim entirely on the basis of the principle that it is wrong to force the rape victim to carry the rapist's baby to term. But no one wants to apply force to the rape victim. True conservatives want to ensure that no one applies force to the innocent child before he or she can be given up for adoption." I generally agree with Adams on this issue, but I have to point out that his statement about not wanting to apply force to rape victim is wrong. If she doesn't want to carry the child to term - regardless of how we fell about it - then requireing her to carry the child to term is forcing her to do something against her will. There's no way around that fact.
