This past election brought the question “What about abortion in the case of rape” to the forefront of the public debate on abortion. Those on the abortion rights side have long used rape as an excuse for legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason.
In fact, the very decision of Roe vs. Wade was based on a “rape” claim that Norma McCorvey (the “Roe” in Roe vs. Wade) has since admitted was a lie. The sad truth is that many who consider themselves pro-life have compromised and allowed for this exception; with some saying that because it is rare it is better to save most, even if some are sacrificed. However, as we approach the 40th anniversary of this infamous court decision, and over 50 million babies killed, I suggest that this compromise has not worked. It is time we learned to articulate the truth that if life begins at conception, and abortion is the taking of innocent life, then killing a child for the crimes of his or her father is never justified.
If you did not have the opportunity to see the video I made along with other brave women from Indiana who were conceived in rape, please take the time to watch and share with friends:
