There is a lot said about what a woman thinks when she conceived in rape or how a child might feel having been conceived in rape. But rarely is the mother of a rape conceived baby asked how he/she feels. There are many people conceived in rape but it's not the kind of thing people talk about. CHOICES4LIFE hopes to open that dialog giving society the opportunity to know the truth and enable women and children of rape conception to be embraced and not shunned. Too many times the first reaction from society to a woman being raped and pregnant is to abort the child. It is a surprise to family and friends that the mother would want to give birth and keep this unplanned baby.
Watch the video below and hear for yourself what they think.
"I wish with all my heart that the law had protected me and my babies and forced me to carry my rape conceived babies. Not only that, I wish the law had not made it possible for people around me to pressure me into an abortion I did not want. Those babies were my only hope of being a mother in this life.
"I have to say that as the only survivor of 6 children conceived in incest, my biological father only served 18 months time for the crime he committed. I was placed for adoption, and could not be located years later to prove that he was guilty. This said, even if they had found me, I would not have wanted the death penalty for him. Deciding the fate of a person is not our job, it is Gods. That includes children still in the womb who are yet to have a voice for them self. Across the board, we all sin and fall short (not to be confused with rape being acceptable). We need to pray that the offender come to Christ, ask forgiveness, and be changed through faith.
