Abortion After Rape

If you support abortion in cases of rape, listen to Ken’s story. His biological mother was beaten and raped when just fifteen years old. She gave Ken the gift of life and the gift of adoption. He’s now been married for fifteen years and has three beautiful children. One of them is an adopted child with special needs. Ken’s tired of people treating unborn babies conceived in rape—using his words, “like they’re nothing.” An abortion after a rape pregnancy only multiplies the violence. Women who’ve aborted under these circumstances tell me the abortion made them feel like they’d been raped a second time. We should never kill a child for the crime of his or her father. God loves every baby conceived and has a divine plan for them. All we have to do is love them.
