Mark Gordon on Abortion
Pro-life except for incest, rape, or maternal life
The forum consisted of a series of questions asked of all the candidates. All said they were pro-life and believe life begins at conception. Only two said they would make an exception to those beliefs:
Gordon in cases of protecting the life of the mother, incest or rape, and Foster Friess for the life of the mother.
Four are Wyoming natives, including Gordon, who was raised on a ranch west of Kaycee. Gordon is the state treasurer.

Anti-abortion, with exceptions like rape cases
There was also general agreement on most of the night's topics. All of the candidates said they were anti-abortion, though Gordon said he believed in exceptions in the case of rape, incest or if the mother's life were at risk.
That drew some grumbles from the packed crowd.
