  • I'd consider it, but I think I'd rather have the child and put it up for adoption.
  • I couldn't do it. It wasn't the childs fault. It definitly wouldn't be easy to raise a rapist's child, but I think I'd forget that, because it would be MY child.
  • I think I would have an abortion because every time you look at that child, you will relive that horrible moment.

  • Abortion. It's also the rapist's child. That would really just weird me out too much.
  • Alright, I have a hard time with this situation. I am VERY against abortion, and believe that if you are choosing to be sexually active, pregnancy may happen and you should realize you are always taking a chance. BUT when it comes down to rape, if I put myself in that situation, i'd have a hard time giving birth to my rapists child. Everything about that seems so wrong...and I do not believe God would at all accept the thought of abortion, but at the same time would he want you to have the devil's baby? Because a rapist is a part of evil, and there is no other way to look at it. If I was you, I would not feel guilty about having an abortion if i was raped. Under the circumstances, you've already been through enough!
  • No I would not have an abortion. Yes it was unplanned so are many. Yes the guy forced himself on me and it was horribal. There comes a time in your life when you have to put childish thoughts away and live like an adult. Maybe you feel it to be unfair but life is almost never fair. That child is half you. That child did nothing wrong. I personaly would keep my kid and overpower the thoughts but there is always adoption.
  • NO! I would give the child up for adoption to a loving family. But I could not murder(abort) an innocent child.
  • Absolutely. A rapist commits a violent crime against me, and I should bear his child? He gets to produce offspring, and I'm punished with nine months of pregnancy and the knowledge that I created a child with a monstrous human being? No way. I didn't choose this man to have a baby with, and frankly those genes do not need to live on. Hopefully I won't ever be in such a position but.. Assuming I wasn't prevented from doing so, I would be getting the morning-after pill immediately to prevent the pregnancy. If I did become pregnant, I would have to end the pregnancy. Fortunately it is available to me where I live, and it would not endanger my life to get it. At least for now. If I ever have a baby, it will be one that is absolutely wanted and loved without reservation, not one that is forced upon me by a violent criminal.
  • Yes, because i wouldn't be able to take care of the baby.
  • I'd raise the child, no question in my mind. The child has done nothing. My husband and i have even discussed this and there is no question in our minds, and we've known someone who did just that with great love and hope.
  • I think that's hard to answer. But yeah, I would. Because I don't think I could go through that pregnancy and have a constant reminder of what happened.
  • No i would not. if i felt like that i could not keep the child because of teh rape then i'd give it to a person who whated a baby. i think that it is a sencless waste of life to kill a baby because of something domeone did even in the rape sisuation.it wasnt to babys fault so why punish the baby by killing it. it didnt ask to be killed just like you didnt ask to be raped. trun a negative into a postive.
  • I absolutley would not. I know someone who was in this situation and chose to give the child up for adoption. 35 years later she still does not regret her decision.
  • I would definitely have an abortion. I would not be able to carry the child of a man that raped me.
  • I think I would keep the baby then put it up for adoption. NO baby deserves abortion.
  • I would abort. My husband had a vasectomy after our first child because it nearly cost both mine and the babies life and I would not wish to risk that again. I take responsibility for my sex life and should not have to take responsibility for a rapists. To all the self righteous people who yell murder and give it up for adoption would you be so sure if it meant you might die carrying that baby?
  • No. I would take the morning after pill to try to prevent a pregnancy from occurring but if all failed and I became pregnant I would have the child. There is nothing a pathetic rapist could do to make me think so little of myself that I wouldn't want a child that took life in my body and who shared my blood and my genes. When I look at my children I have already I don't resent them because of who their father is. I just love them for who they are. If this rapist wants to go for visitation rights that's cool, I'll be suing him left and right, his life will never be his again. He will rue the day he ever thought he could victimize me.
  • i've been in this situation. i aborted. for my mental health it was the best option for me. it was a hard decision to make, but i made it. and i am living with it just fine. if that baby was meant to come into the world it will one day. if not thro me thro another person
  • Personally i wouldnt be able to do it i dunno how i would feel about it because its never happend but i deffently wouldnt take it out on the child if i couldnt face bringing him/her up i would put him/her up for adoption so they could get the love they needed
  • Yes. My uterus is a no-vacancy zone, and being put there by a stranger instead of a lover isn't going to improve the odds I'd relent.
  • Im probably considered a freak in his day and age, but I don't believe in abortion..Even for rape. Adoption would be my solution to that terrible delemma
  • No i would not get a abortion or adoption
  • couldn't have an abortion why? me personal choice
  • I am not a female, of course, but I would think that the situation of the rape would be considered. Father, brother, cousin, etc. The chance of the child being deformed would be a factor.
  • No I would because it's not the childs fault. i would love that child no matter were it can from because it would be a part of me.
  • No, never. The child that I brought into the world would be something good coming out of something horrific. Some people say they couldn't because every time they looked at their child they would see this horrible monster but I can not manage that being true for myself. I would look at my baby, my child and see my own strength.
  • I was raped and had I gotten pregnant, no way would I have had an abortion. It would not have been that baby's fault that his "father" was a rapist so why should he die just because his father came from bad seed. People assume if the man is a rapist, the child will be to. There are too many options..morning after pill. It amazes me the women that refuse to take the morning after pill and then 3 months down the line ALL OF A SUDDEN decide they no longer can raise a rapist baby. I am not saying rape is not real but I do feel a lot of women decide they want an abortion and because of the way they were raised or because of what people might say they convince themself they were raped to JSUTIFY in their minds an abortion is ok. BS. Unless the mother will die, abortion for any reason is murder. If you don't want it, give it up for adoption.. too many couples wait years to adopt and never get the chance to be parents because there are not enough babies. more babies are aborted every year than die in the Iraq war yearly.. that is sick
  • I was in this situation at 13 years old. I was forced to have an abortion. I was not given an option. I regret the loss of that child as it was a part of me. I would not have had an abortion had I been given a choice. That was a terribly young age to have this happen, and it was not a good idea for me to raise a child. However, a forced abortion is not good for any woman or girl. Being given a choice now by law is a good thing. If I this were to happen to me now, I could not and would not have an abortion.
  • That would be a very tough situation. I honestly do not know what I would do. I think several factors would come into play.
  • I would abort. If not, I'd be reminded every day for nine months (at least!) of what had happened to me. For those who say the fetus is "innocent," I say sorry, but I believe life begins at birth. My mental health needs to be respected. Furthermore, many states allow rapists to have parental rights, and I refuse to give a rapist that satisfaction.
  • Absolutely not. Why punish an innocent baby just because of the way the child came into existence? Rape should not be a death sentence for an unborn child. When you become pregnant, you become a mother to that unborn child. And you don't have the right to kill your child just because of the memory of the way the child came into being. Give the child up for adoption if you don't want it and get counselling or some kind of help for the rape.
  • Absolutely. I would abort as soon as possible. I would not want to bring a child into the world that I would look at and think of a terrible day in my life. The women who would keep the baby, I commend you, i wouldn't have the ability to move past the incident.
  • I would never consider abortion as an option. Being a strong woman does not mean that you held your head high on your drive to the abortion clinic and "survived" the tramatic experience of rape. Being a strong woman means that you stand up and STOP the cycle of violence, it ends at the rape. There is no need to murder a baby. Woman should be strong for the innocent life that was created during the horrible event. It was not the baby's fault. And if you can't handle raising the child give it up for adoption...don't continue the cycle.
  • The moment you look into your newborn's face..nothing else in the world matters but the child's well being. I could never take the life of ANY child even under those circumstances. It was not the baby's fault & if by some miracle you were raped on one of the fews days out of the month you can get pregnant & the pregnancy took..the only thing I could believe is there is a plan for this child...either in my life or others...there is a reason.
