    personal conviction? Or are they pandering to religious groups with campaign cash and influence with voters?

    Crazy ideas like "criminal miscarriage" and "legitimate rape" come from somewhere... I imagine it's something the candidates pick up while attending fundraisers hosted by wealthy evangelicals.

    One earnest pastor after another grabs their elbow and says, "We gotta do something about wimmin killin' theah babies with that mornin' afta pill".

    Once in office, the candidate gets a call from the wealthy widow who hosted the fundraiser... and legislation ensues.
