Printing Help:  While the default settings will work on most browsers, when printing the 2006 Pilot questionnaire from your browser, you may need to change your browser's page settings (for example, in Microsoft Explorer, File-->Page Setup). The questionnaire prints best if your page orientation is set to portrait, with small left/right margins such as .5 left and .2 right. Setting small top and bottom margins (such as .5 top and .3 bottom) will reduce somewhat the number of printed pages but is not a necessary setting.

Two. The law should permit abortion only in cases of rape, incest, or when the woman's life is in danger.
Three. The law should permit abortion for reasons other than rape, incest, or danger to the woman's life, but only after the need for the abortion has been clearly established.
Four. By law, a woman should always be able to obtain an abortion as a matter of personal choice.
