No exceptions


I was just rereading this excellent piece by Jeffrey Rosen on what would happen if Roe toppled, and wondering about the 15% of people he says support no-exception bans on the practice, even when the mother's life is in jeopardy. Is this really true? I know that there's controversy over mental health exceptions, but how many pro-lifers would actually support, say, forcing a woman with severe pre-eclampsia to roll the dice?
