you really would keep your baby if you got raped?

i am suprised to see how many people say they would not get an abortion if they got raped because "its not the babies fault." Your right - its not, and would you really like to find out one day that your daddy raped your mommy and thats why your here? can you imagine what that would do to somebodys self esteem and personality?

  • I would never carry a rapist's child. Either Plan B, or terminate it immediately.

  • I wouldn't even wait long enough to consider abortion. I'd take the Plan B pill.

  • I was raped and kept my baby. She's almost 18 now and has no idea the circumstances surrounding the way I conceived her and I don't plan on ever telling her. I wouldn't want to know something liek that and I bet she wouldn't either.

  • If I didnt want the baby I would give the baby up for adoption. My friend was raped but a guy who slipped her something at a party and she became pregnant. It was destressing that she was raped but when she gave birth her baby made her life worth it. Out of such an ugly act came a beautiful being.

  • She's never asked. I got married when she was five and my husband adopted her. No one but me knows about the rape since I never pressed charges. There might be a time in the future when she does ask me and I'm really not sure exactly what I'll tell her. I love her so much and I'm afraid telling her what actually happened will crush her or change her in a negative way.

  • Life is not an episode of L&O SVU. People have all kinds of crappy parents. Why should they pay for someone else's screw up, whether daddy is a rapier or a deadbeat methhead. Either way doesn't justify killing someone and compounding the trauma.

  • I absolutely would keep a baby that was the result of rape but you do realize that situation is rare.

  • does the one night stand in back of car tell her kid thats were she was concieved?? I don't think its lieing just not sharing details. If someone can care for that child thats thier decision to keep it, the child doesn't need to know all

  • I would take the plan B pill as well... But I know a girl who was in the exact same situation as Jenaikao01 and she doesnt regret her choice to keep her son at all. But personally, I couldnt do it.

  • IhartU, I think now she is old enough and stable have raised her well and she could handle it.....but I would still wait until she asked. Kudos to you for being a very strong woman!!!
