Q And then President Carter also said, quote, "I've never been convinced that Jesus Christ would approve abortion." And my question: Does the President believe that a 13-year-old victim of gang rape or incest by her father or mother should be denied the right to abortion because he believes Jesus opposes all abortion?
MR. McCLELLAN: The President has made his views very clear about the sanctity of life and promoting a culture of life --
Q I wonder if you could clarify on this issue.
MR. McCLELLAN: The President is a pro-life President.
Go ahead. Roger, go ahead.
A question for Les - you do realize, don't you, that your hypothetical victim of incest at the hands of her mother would have no need for an abortion - don't you?
