Rape is a horrible and traumatic event in the life of any woman who has suffered its indignity. It is the forcible act of sexual intercourse against the will of the woman. Should she become pregnant, not only must she bear the memory of the rape, but she also carries the child of the rapist. The question, then, is whether or not a woman should abort the baby that is the result of a rape? This is a very difficult question to answer. After all, it is a highly emotional issue. Of course, I am a man and cannot possibly relate nor understand what it would mean to be in the place of a woman whose body has been invaded in such a way. I can only speak from what I know and what I believe about the sanctity of life that is derived from God's word. In my opinion, a baby that is a product of rape should not be killed. It is not the fault of the baby that it has been brought into the world. Why should the life of the baby be sacrificed because of the indignity suffered against the woman? Yes, I know the rape is horrible and that it is wrong. I know that the woman has the right of self-protection and emotional security. But I also know that love is greater than all these things, and few things on earth have greater love than a mother for her child. I know that some will strongly object and say that my attitude is callous and insensitive to the needs of the woman. Indeed, a woman impregnated through rape has suffered greatly, and bearing the child would certainly be a reminder of the horrible incident. The "father" would not support the child and the mother would be left to raise the child on her own. Without a doubt, the woman gets the raw end of the deal. It is only natural, then, for a woman to want to protect herself physically, emotionally, and financially by removing from her very body that which has invaded her through rape. I cannot blame a woman for desiring to justify an abortion intellectually and emotionally in this case. But still, in spite of the great indignity against the woman, and in spite of the emotional and financial hardship she would bear in the future, must the child be required to pay for the sin of the rapist? Is it right to kill the child who is not at fault? Is it right to take the life of someone who has done nothing wrong? In civilized nations, protection of the innocent is a primary concern. In the hearts of mothers, love should win out. Love that sacrifices and gives life, instead of taking it, should be the goal. Just as Jesus loved us and sacrificed Himself for us so that we might have life, so too should the mother give life to the child. Is it fair? No. Neither was it fair for Jesus to die for us, but He did it anyway. He showed us what true love really is. But for those who place no credence in God's word nor the sacrifice of Christ, it all comes down to the persons' values. If a woman considers the life in her womb to have human nature, even though it is the product of rape, then she will be more likely to spare its life. However, if she considers what is alive in her to be nothing more than an invasive parasite, then killing it would be easier to do. In today's world, sterile medical terms are used to describe the life growing in the womb, thus making it easier to detach oneself emotionally. "Embryo" and "fetus" are clinical words that do not carry emotional baggage. Terms like "baby" and "child," however, do. Which words do you use? How can anyone not realize that what is alive in the womb is human in nature? How can anyone so easily dismiss its life? That is easy for you to say Of course, while sitting here in the comfort of my office, it is easy for me to urge women to keep the babies who are the product of rape. After all, I don't have to carry the child, suffer the emotional trauma, or bear the financial burden. This is true. The closest I can come to experiencing their situation is to try and imagine what I would do if my wife were raped and impregnated. Years ago, I decided that if it happened, I would want to raise the child as my own. I dearly love children and could never simply want to get rid of it. My wife feels the same way. Jesus showed me His great love by sacrificing His life for me, a sinner. I deserve to be judged harshly by Him, yet He is gracious and kind. So too, I must be gracious and kind in response. Therefore, I would keep any child given to me and raise him or her as my own, with all my love and dedication....by God's grace.

Yes, I would keep a child conceived in rape. My husband and I have discussed it, and he would be fully supportive. The main reason is because I believe that all human life should be protected, no matter how that person was conceived, no matter what physical or mental challenges that person has, no matter what that person might have done (I'm also opposed to capital punishment). The child conceived in rape is not guilty of rape and therefore should not suffer a death penalty. The child is equally innocent, as is the mother. I'm not in the habit of punishing children for the crimes of their fathers. Furthermore, the child is as much the mother's offspring as the rapist's. If I conceived via rape, it would still be MY child. And I would control all the environmental aspects of that child's life, so there is an excellent chance that the child will grow up to be a wonderful person (which is my goal as a parent). I am not under the belief that rape is a heredity thing -- are you? Also, getting an abortion doesn't make the rape go away, doesn't "cure" the effects of the rape, doesn't increase the woman's health or survival rate after the rape. All the abortion does is add another traumatic, negative experience to a woman who has really had more than her share.

I believe abortion is always wrong. I am against abortion because I believe that at the moment of conception a new life is formed, a life with its own genetic code completely separate of the mother's life. this new human life is innocent and deserves the dignity that every human deserves. The baby can't help the circumstances of his or her conception. Yes, a rape is certainly an extremely difficult thing for a woman to go through, but taking a human life by having an abortion will not ease her suffering. So yes, if I was raped, even though it would be difficult, I would absolutely have the baby. I would give the baby up for adoption since I wouldn't be able to raise him or her myself.

That human being that isn't born yet is just that a human being and that human being that had nothing to do with what his father did to you is innocent. If a women has been rapped and gets pregnant and does not want the child, she should have the baby take the baby home, and make that decision to keep the baby after she's been around it. ' I was going to say that she should give the child up for adoption if she doesn't want the child, but I'm changing my mind to her taking the baby home and deciding after spending time with it. No, I don't believe in abortion, but in the event that I was rapped by a family member such as a brother or father.......SICK, but it does happen unfortunetly, then I would say yes. And yes it is killing no matter what the circumstances.

If I was raped and got pregnant, I would want the man punished not the child. I may not raise the child, but I would have the baby, and most likely place for adoption. Adding another atrocity on top of the rape is not the answer.

i will take a stand for the different part the following. with the help of no potential do I choose the different part though, i'm kinda on the fence about this. If I were a political candidate/lawmaker, i'd vote professional-decision. If the final public of your voters are professional-decision, thats it; era. As a own element, I kinda have a situation. type of a judgment of suitable and incorrect element that couldn't bypass away. I really call for obstacles. the reason being that u.s. has thoroughly lost music of the fee of existence. How can we candidly with the help of a existence away? do not gimme any of this fetus $*** both, there's a huge vast difference between a rock and a fetus. it is really a case-with the help of-case situation. in spite of the undeniable fact that, i imagine we are arising a morally weaker society. We bypass to warfare continually, we've abortion clinics everywhere, media violence with the help of the roof. not something shocks us anymore. thats the most magnificent element of all to me.

Being male, I can't really say, but I read a story once about how the guy who founded the Smithsonian Institution was the product of a rape, and his mother was run out of their little community for keeping him. If that is true, it only goes to show that the child's origin is not an issue when it comes to their potential for contributing to the greater good. I would cite that story if I could recall where it was.

No, I would give it up for adoption. I wouldnt punish the child for an act it was not guilty of. But keeping the child is like having apart of the person who did commit the act. It would also be a reminder so I would give the child up to a loving home and they would never have to live with the knowledge of being a product of rape.

yes. nobody has the right to get an abortion no matter what. that's a human being and who are you to take their life away for your own selfish reasons? like when people say they don't have enough money to raise a baby, or it's not the right time in their life. yes being raped is a bad experience but if you don't wanna wake up and look at the child every day the least you could do is put it up for adoption, not kill it.

it bothers me when they ask for people to do it for them. i am a senior and take hard classes. i only ask for help, not what the answers are. you can look back and see that. but the people who don't even want to know how to do it. the homework section is for HELP, not to be an easy way to cheat. if only the others realized this and realized that it gets them nowhere because they will fail their tests when they cheat.
