Carter: Jesus Would Not Approve Of Abortions
" ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta/AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter believes Jesus Christ would not approve of abortions.

Carter made the comments during Thursday’s “The Laura Ingraham Show” while talking about how the Democratic Party should be more pro-life.

“I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions and that was one of the problems I had when I was president having to uphold Roe v. Wade,”  Carter told Ingraham on her nationally syndicated radio show, “and I did everything I could to minimize the need for abortions.”

The former commander in chief feels women should only have abortions when their life is at risk during a pregnancy or if they got pregnant due to rape or incest.

“I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need, the requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose life are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest,” Carter told Ingraham.

Carter believes that if Dems took this position that the party would win back conservatives it has lost over the abortion issue.

Carter’s comments came the day Georgia lawmakers struck a last-minute agreement to restrict abortions five months after women get pregnant. "
