    I cannot fathom a woman deciding to bring a child into the world who's genetic makeup is 50% hereditary from a rapist.

    Re: For women: would you bear a child who was conceived from a rape?

    I have no idea. I don't know that I would be able to ascertain w/o DNA testing whether the baby was the product of the rapist's actions or normal relations with my boyfriend, so I'd have to assume I'd be no less likely to abort than I would be without the rape.

    If I weren't in a relationship at the the time of the rape I'd probably be more likely to abort. Not necessarily because the baby's father is a rapist (and quite possibly dead as hell by the time the baby's born), though. The decision to abort isn't about one factor, and the rape itself wouldn't even weigh all that heavily. It would be more about whether or not I'm capable of parenting. I already know I'm not capable of giving a child of my own creation away; I'm not strong enough to handle it. I still grieve 15 years after my brother was given up for adoption, and I didn't even birth the kid.

    A poll on the Internet isn't going to give you an honest answer. I'd say a woman would be stupid to go through it adoption or not. It's not a good thing no matter the decision. How you gonna tell the kid anything? "Yeah your dad and I met when he attacked me in the Kmart parking lot. The end. Now quit looking at me you have his horrible eyes that haunt my nightmares."

    Yes, I would keep the baby and raise it. Having an abortion is never going to cure the fact i was raped. I would eventually learn to live with it as awful as it would be, but there's many hurdles people overcome to survive and live a productive life. I would suffer more mental anguish knowing that i had taken the life of my unborn child I just couldn't do it.

    Re: For women: would you bear a child who was conceived from a rape?

    I'm uncertain. I've never been through that experience and I feel horribly for those who have.

    Generally, I am against abortion and would encourage unwanted pregnant mothers to consider adoption (my son is adopted) and even though I am against abortion, I have never felt it was my place to dictate to others how to live their lives and do with their bodies.

    Having said that, my heart tells me I would raise the child... but who knows, really? Having your personal security violated and the emotions and mental anguish that come from being violated in such a violent and personal way....I don't feel comfortable saying definitively what I'd do or what I would think anyone else would do.

    What a horribly hard question.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    You are speaking as though the child will "remind" her of the rape. Like if she wasn't pregnant and had aborted the unborn child then she would just forget about it.......

    I would bear the child and either raise or place him/her for adoption.

    Oh really? Where is your evidence of this? I've never heard of "raping" being a hereditary trait before.
