Although incest is disgusting, if it is a consensual relationship, it should be treated like any other relationship.
"and when the mother's life is in danger (as in an ectopic or tubal pregnancy, which will kill the mother if carried to term)."
"Dangerous "back alley" abortions would also result if abortion were banned completely."
This is true, but this is why abortion should be regulated with common sense, not completely banned.
"An interesting contradiction in terms is that supposed "pro-lifers" also tend to be in favor of the death penalty"
There is absolutely nothing contradicting about opposing the death of an innocent child and supporting the death of a child molester, murderer, terrorist, etc.
"and have a real bad habit of shooting doctors and blowing up abortion clinics."
And how many times does this happen compared to those who peacefully protest it?
"It's also very difficult to decide exactly when life begins. By Pro-lifer logic, masturbation would probably also be considered murder, as sperm are technically alive and somewhat human (haploid)."
Except sperm are simply a cell and have no heartbeat or feel pain.
"What they don't seem to understand is that there's a difference between something that is merely "human" and a full-blown, sentient "person."

"but it's a woman's right protected under the law."
And what about the child's right to life? Life, liberty, property, not Choice, liberty, property.
The act of terminating the life of an offspring before it is developed enough to leave the womb. Wouldn't be such a big issue if the vast majority of people who undergo it didn't make the stupid decision of fucking without thinking ahead about the consequences, such as getting pregnant as a result.
