    I was just extrapolating from my thoughts about a morning after pill. If female people that could possibly become rape victims carried a morning after pill in their purse and kept a spare in the medicine cabinet that might solve this abortion after rape issue. They would have about 12 hours to decide if they want the rapist's baby. Is that not reasonable?

    Just having it available a drug stores would work - and yes that is reasonable - in most instances. The women/female doesn't always know what to do in terms of decision.

    I didn't say she is selfish. I said what I would do, and the reasoning why, and that it requires putting the interest of someone else above my own. Sorry if you find that disturbing, but it's how I view it.

    If am I women i immediately abort theres nothing to think about for me, logically i have no reason to carry an unwanted ZEF nor would i risk my life for the unwanted ZEF. Just think if giving birth killed me, my family suffers even more, the hell with that lol.

    I voted undecided. However my husband's mom was the result of a rape, that is how she got into this world. I sure am glad someone chose to keep her.

    I honestly think that this is one of those situations that no one can answer until they have been there. People have a tendency to say that they would never do something and then later in life when the situation stares them in the face, they don't react the same as they always thought they would. This works both ways, people who say they would and people who say they wouldn't have an abortion as a result of rape.

    I was the victim of child molestation for 10+ years growing up. Thinking about that situation, no - I wouldn't want to keep a pregnancy resulting from incestuous rape.

Two wrongs don't make a right and killing another human being that was conceived through an already terrible act only means that 2 human lives have been violated with one of them having been violated to the ultimate degree (death). Do I understand why a woman that disagrees with my views on human rights would want an abortion? Yes. However, that doesn't mean that I believe their decision is right or that the abortion is ethical.

    well its a message board so people shouldnt get to emotional IMO but in real life i could easily see how someone might take a swing at you. I mean if you were standing in front of a rape victium and her father and told her she is worse than her rapist, yep, some people would definitely punch you.

    Me? I recognize that you are just stating your opinion and nothing more, its one you are free to have no matter how offensive it may be to people or how illogical. I just simply could never agree with it because i see no logical reason to and certainly no factual reason to, thats just the way i am, i need solid facts and solid logic to agree and in this case i definitely cant.

    "Unplanned" does not always mean "unwanted".

But when I think of this I think of two incidences that happened after my period started - because that carried the risk of actual pregnancy. The idea of carrying the child of my cousin - or old ****face hetch - is so disgusting it makes me sick to think of the possibilities - it could have happened so easily, too . . .just a few days earlier or later. *vomit* it just makes my skin crawl. Of course I'd abort - holy **** - without a doubt. Sorry - but there's no way anyone could convince me otherwise . . . If it's a matter of being moral vs immoral then I guess I'm just one hell of an immoral succubus from hell for not wanting to parent a child with my either of them.

    My cousin and some old twisted pervert from my dad's church.

    **** that - **** you if you think I should WANT to. You can . . . the nutty pro lifers can carry their Damned Daddy's babies all they want in some twisted family-triangle psycho **** circus all they damned well please.

    Not me.

    Oh no - no ****ing way.

    All of my children were conceived and carried out of love. Sure - it didn't all go well (ok - it was hell) - but it was a hell I opted for and decided I wanted and love was only thing that go me through it it all.

    Maybe if I was raped by more decent people who don't make me sick to my stomach to just remember I'd have a different view. But that's not the case - so I don't.

    Do you think those assaults and violations had permanent effect on how you see people and specifically men in general across your life? That you more had your guard up maybe?

    Of course it had a permanent effect. When I was a kid I was an anthropophobic (just a generalized problem around adults) but got over that as I grew up. I think that had more ot do with my size - I was extremely petit and always ended up being bumped into in public. As I grew up I no longer feared people in general so I'm just a hominophobic. It's not something you get over easily on your own - though I think I could be doing a lot worse right now. I can control my responses and feelings with intense effort and familiarity relaxes my issues over time. So generally speaking I don't often associate with men I don't know.

    And if I have to - I have to somehow find a way to get comfortable when them, first . . . so I really come across as being very casually comfortable. Personal questions, jokes - breaking my own ice. People just don't know I'm trying to stave off a panic attack. I spend a lot of time judging their actions and analyzing their personality, etc - to try to stay on top of my issues.
