Rape Does Not Justify Abortion



this is a question we get asked at every college every campus right there's a lot of people who say I don't like abortion I won't have an abortion but I think abortion cases of rape are okay and this is a difficult one the answer right it's one where it actually demands that pro lifers be true and we're philosophically consistent guess what being philosophically consistent it's freaking hard sometimes because you have to take hard stances what I would say and what I do say when we're talking about rape I think the first thing you have to talk about when you're talking with someone especially who's a survivor of sexual assault is that we love you and we support you okay and that I can think of no greater injustice that they committed upon another human being than sexual assault and that no one in the pro-life movement wants to force women to become pregnant right that's not what I believe we believe that the rapist should be punished not only for his crime and the sexual assault forcing upon her sexually but actually forcing her to become pregnant forcing her to become a mother rapist should be punished for all that but she'll have three choices she can choose to birth her child and parent her child she can birth her child and place her child for adoptive family or she can choose to pay someone else to commit another act of violence against her child we would say in the pocket that's wrong that it doesn't matter the circumstances of your conception or your biology that you're you're an offspring half of your DNA is come from a rapist we don't think that invalidates you as a member of our human family and the way we look at the easiest way to think about it is say she gives birth and chooses the parents crazy Ashley chooses to parent her child two years goes by and her son she looks at her son one day and she's been in treatment she's been in therapy she's been getting help to deal with the trauma of the rape but she looks at her son and he just looks like her rapist and starts triggering her gives her flashbacks right do you think that at that moment when she starts getting these flashbacks she starts having a nightmare she's regressing do you think she should would be justified and killing her two-year-old son we would say no no no reasonable person would say sure she should be able to kill her two-year-old son it's the two-year-old son's harming her he's giving her flashbacks and nightmares why why would no reasonable person say that because he's a human being he's a person with rights that's the argument we make in the pro-life movement that the fetus the zygote the embryo is also a human person with rights and that human child who lives within her has the same rights equal rights

  1. James Robison, one of the world's great humanitarians who saved thousands of lives was a product of rape. Need I say more?

  2. i dont think anyone is qualified to make a negative decision against the fate of a developing human that is being processed.

  3. it is cause and effect. every decision in life has a dramatic cost to how the world is formed. abortion is only good for the individual, yet it is a complete removal of the world of another, and even costs history itself. it is world changing.

  4. Murder is murder.

    Our individual DNA process is a continuous process, unfurling from the moment of conception. There is no later stage of our existence that is not dependent on earlier stages of our existence, as a continuous entity in space and time. Our DNA process is continuous in both space and time from the moment of our conception, to the moment of our death.

    Acceptance, rationalization of the termination of an already unfurling DNA process, once invited to unfurl, requires the irrational acceptance of a temporal bias. In the continuum of space/time, that continuously unfurling DNA process is not a complete individual human 'yet.' That is because we are not regarding that human over the complete time-space continuum that it exists in. But, the only thing required to see the complete individual human is the passage of time.

    We are of course much more than our unfurling DNA processes, but whatever we are, the basis of our life, cannot exist without the unmolested possession of that unfurling DNA process.

    The fetus is a concrete example of a new individual DNA process, unfurling. There is and has been a conflict to define the most fundamental aspect of an individual — the term of its existence. The resolution of this conflict — between the newest individual and others — is resolved by others, based on whatever philosophical or moral guidance they bring to the conflict. The rationalizations in support of abortion boil down to the convenience of the others, based mostly on a shaky temporal bias that is permitted to stand, unquestioned.

  5. Abortion is murder if your raped give it up for adoption. The child created from rape is innocent though. It didn't ask to be born and it doesn't want to die

  6. Women who are raped and have an abortion after are 10 times more likely to die within the year than if they carried the baby to term. Abortion doesn't take away the pain and trauma from being raped- it adds more pain and trauma. She needs love and care not abortion.

  7. For the same reasons given for rape being a terrible injustice (which it clearly is) because it’s forcing one person’s iwill upon another’s body without their consent, abortion does the same thing and fatally so. If no force is exerted, the living child will continue ti grow and thrive. Abortion by definition requires an act of force to take place. “ But two wrongs don’t make a right.” The most profound pro- like banner I ever saw in the past spoke volumes and was an ah- ha lightbulb moment. … it said, “”ABORTION: A NEAT QUICK, PAINLESS, CHEAP, NON-EMBARRASSING EASY WAY OUT … FOR MEN!!!!!!” I am so surprised real feminists don’t see that they have been deceived , totally duped not to see that abortion is here because powerful MEN (not all of them) but it enables and empowers MEN to continue in irresponsible behavior far more than empowering women. It takes away the CONSEQUENCES for irresponsible behavior. Millions of women are suffering severely physically and emotionally today because of an abortion. Many of these women by their own testimony became staunch “ pro- abortion proponents” to convince themselves more than anyone else that its not murder. And the battle rages on. I would ask abortion proponents who call themselves pro choicers to consider the possibility that you’ve been looking at this battle all backwards. You know that If the ultrasounds of abortions were allowed to be seen on the evening news every night for the next month and the violence that is perpetrated on these little babies was broadcast daily, there would be cries for justice on every street corner tomorrow for them. BUT- Ultrasounds of abortions are not allowed because they are too violent for the general public. Please consider what you are promoting. These babies are being worse than raped, they feel pain , cry out and bleed red blood just like you and I because they are human beings, Just less developed and smaller like a newborn baby also is.
