Is Abortion Acceptable In Cases of Rape and Incest? Women Touched By Abortion Speak Out

Rebecca Kiessling, A Michigan attorney and Personhood advocate, was conceived in rape. Rebecca opposes the notion that there should be exceptions in cases of rape and incest.

“Whenever I hear that, I cannot help but to think of the parable of the lost sheep,  because Jesus is all about saving the “one”.

He was specifically talking about the little children, that you do not despise any of these

In today’s society, who are “the least of these”? I believe that children conceived in rape  and  other “hard cases”, such as down syndrome and other forms of Trisomy are clearly the most despised, dehumanized, stigmatized, marginalized, and discriminated against members of today’s society.

We are called things such as “demon spawn”, “rapist baby”, “horrible reminder of the rape”, and ‘monster’s child”. Sean Hannity, Fox News Talk Show host, even called us an evil seed.”

Personhood activists do not believe that it is God‘s will that a woman was raped. No Personhood leader or activist has ever said that. What we have said is that we don’t believe we should address the tragedy and trauma of rape and incest by not giving the unborn child a chance at life. Moreover, we don’t believe the mother should be subject to secondary trauma, meaning twice traumatized.

Personhood Activist and attorney, Tanya Green, is the author of “The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Plan for Black America”. When asked about exceptions in the case of rape and incest,  Green said the following:

“The Old Testament called for the death of the rapist–not the child. A child should not be rendered a death sentence for the sins of her father.”

Green concluded: “All life–especially innocent new life is precious to God. And as such should be protected under our laws. A woman who is pregnant as result of rape should not be told that abortion will take care of the problem or “evidence.” It is an irreversible decision that often compound the emotional and psychological problems caused by the rape.”

Brooke Bowen, a dynamic speaker on Personhood advocacy, is a post-abortive mother from rape.  She also opposes exceptions in cases of rape and incest exceptions:

“God has the ability to turn a bad situation into a beautiful one. God also has the ability to make good come from evil. While many pro-choice advocates argue that carrying a child conceived in rape to term will destroy a rape victim, I argue that it may be that having her baby and loving her baby may be the one final thing that can give her closure to the evil deed itself.

I have met many women who have been in abusive relationships and been rape victims who regret their decision to abort, but I have never met one woman who regretted the choice of giving life.”

Ms. Bowen contiinued: “While some pro-choice advocates may also argue that children conceived in rape are an “evil seed,” and “undeserved of life,” I argue that no one is less deserved of life because of their means of conception. I argue that that an unborn baby is still half of the mother’s DNA. All life is a gift. All babies are precious, no matter their means of conception.

How many human beings can look an innocent newborn baby in the face and deem that it does not deserve to live because of the deeds of its father? My bet would be slim to none. Why is it that an unborn baby is any different?

How many people could look at the likes of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass  and claim that the world would have been a better place without him? Would pro-choice advocates deem that an adult, Frederick Douglass, was less deserving of life or didn’t belong in this world because of the sins of his father?

An estimated twelve thousand babies are born each year as the result of rape. Does God love these babies less? Do these babies not have the immense ability to grow into something great and contribute to the world? Are we as human beings merely limited to become what our fathers have become? Should we all be punished for sins we had nothing to do with?”

Ezekiel 18:20 “The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.”

It is clear, from the testimony of women whose lives have been personally touched by abortion, as well as the Bible, that unborn persons conceived in rape and incest deserve a right to life.

They too were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26,27)

    I would never judge a woman who got pregnant by rape or incest, and chose abortion, but I would pray and encourage her to choose life & put the baby up for adoption. I have to look at the baby – and the baby is always innocent regardless of how he or she was conceived. I know a story of a woman who got pregnant by rape – decided to keep the baby boy. At the age of 20 her son led her to Christ.

  2. Scripture tells us that God knows you before you were formed in the womb. Each unborn child is known by God already! Who can fathom the power of God to do great things through the child that is formed even from a rape?
