MARTHA MACCALLUM (ANCHOR): Clearly there has been a lot of activity at the state level with regard to this. Do you think that this bill is right? Do you back it? It bans abortions even in the case of rape or incest. So, it's the really the most controversial version of this that we've seen. Do you think this is a good move and do you think it will be supported? 

KRISTAN HAWKINS (PRESIDENT, STUDENTS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA): I absolutely do think this is a good move. Look, Roe v Wade is going to become a historical footnote in our country -- just another tragedy that we silently sat by and allowed [to] happen when we allowed the courts, once again, to rule that a group of persons were less deserving of equal protection under the law. And while I know this is a difficult subject to talk about when we speak about rape and the women who have endured this -- who have suffered horrifically from rape. But the reality is that your humanity doesn't change based on the circumstances of your conception.
