In my personal life, I am opposed to abortion unless necessitated by grave danger to the physical and/or psychological health of the mother or severe fetal defects.

In the public arena, I believe that the state should NOT be involved prior to the point of viability. Before this period, it is a deeply personal decision best made between a woman and her physician. Past this period, the viability of the fetus can be interpreted as a marker of individuality which deserves the protection of the state. This is essentially the current scenario in the US. This is consistent with my libertarian philosophy which exalts individual rights.

Okay, I misunderstood that and some of the others.
