Tammy doesn’t support rape as an exception for abortion because she’s lived it. Days before her seventeenth birthday she went on her first date, which tragically ended in rape. In another tragic turn she chose abortion, which Tammy said was worse than the rape. Through the process, she accidently heard her baby’s heartbeat and told the abortionist to stop. He didn’t. Tammy can hardly remember college because she drank so much and suffered from an eating disorder. Any sound resembling a heartbeat sent her into terrible anxiety. Abortion isn’t the answer to the horrible act of rape. Why sentence the child to death by abortion when the crime was committed by the baby’s father? Several women have told me the abortion was worse than the rape. But none regretted saying yes to life.
