Anonymous asked: What about young girls who get raped?
First off, less than 1% of all abortions are done for rape. And less than 2% are done for rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother.
Next. Rape is a traumatic experience, the victims need compassion, understanding and support. Abortion adds to the trauma. Here are some statistics on rape. http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/sexual-assault-victims
Here are some quotes from the book “Victims and Victors” About pregnancy from rape.
“After my daughter was born, it was love at first sight … I know I made the right decision in having her.” -Nancy “Cole”
“Often I cry. Cry because I could not stop the attacks. Cry because my daughter is dead. And I cry because it still hurts.” -Edith Young
“I think that rape victims with pregnancies are discriminated against because people seem to think you’re nuts to have a baby by a man who raped you. We are looked upon as being liars, or stupid.” -Sharon “Bailey”
“They say abortion is the easy way out, the best thing for everyone, but they are wrong. It has been over 15 years, and I still suffer.” -”Rebecca Morris”
“I thank God for the strength He gave me to go through the bad times and for all of the joy in the good times. I will never regret that I chose to give life to my daughter.” -Mary Murray
“Abortion does not help or solve a problem-it only compounds and creates another trauma for the already grieving victim by taking away the one thing that can bring joy.” -Helene Evans
“The effects of the abortion are much more far-reaching than the effects of the rape in my life.” -”Patricia Ryan”
“I, having lived through rape, and having raised a child ‘conceived in rape,’ feel personally assaulted and insulted every time I hear that abortion should be legal for rape and incest. I feel that we’re being used to further the abortion issue, even though we’ve not been asked to tell our side of the story.” -Kathleen DeZeeuw
These women are in fragile states and need love, care and guidance. Abortion is not the cure all solution, it is an invasive and often painful surgical procedure that adds to the trauma of what just happened to them. The solution is counseling, and provisions. To assume that young girls, and any girl that conceives from rape is an insult.
