The wife of Republican presidential nominee John McCain doesn't agree with vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's opposition to abortion in cases of rape and incest. Cindy McCain also parts ways with her husband's running mate on sex education. Palin opposes abortion and rejects the view that pregnancies caused by rape and incest should be exceptions. Cindy McCain tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that "I don't agree with that aspect, but I do respect her for her views." Palin has opposed funding sex-education programs in Alaska. Cindy McCain tells ABC that she advocated abstinence as a part of sex education at her children's school. "I believe that it's two-fold and I think all of it should be taught."
