  • Adoption.

    know I would not abort, but I don't think I could keep the baby.

  • thats a hard question... i think then and only then it would be ok to abort. but i myself probably would keep the baby. rape or no rape, that baby is part of you

  • Abort
    I can't imagine carrying a rapist's baby. I know its not the kids fault,but I just couldn't stomach it.

  • I kept my blessing. Whatever your choice, it is just that your choice.

    By the way... my CHILD is not an it.

  • I would have to decide at the time it happened. That is hard thing to decide to do.

  • That's awful! I dont know if I could go thru w/ the abortion, but I also dont think I could deal w/ a pregnancy & then give it up. Keeping it would NOT be an option- not fair to the child or me being reminded of such a horrible event. I just have to hope I am never faced w/ that dilema.

  • If I got raped I would take the morning after pill that the hospital would ask me to take anyways along with the other cocktail of pills to fight infection and diseases.

  • I honestly don't know. That is something that you couldn't really answer unless you're faced with that decision/situation...

  • Usually, as part of rape protocol in the ER, the victim is given the option for PLAN B to be taken immediately. This does not terminate a preganacy, but it prevents your body from being able to start one. Effectiveness in the 90-someodd percent.

    If anyone you know is raped, it is important that she seek medical care RIGHT AWAY to give her options. You don't have to report a rape to the police in order to get medical care . . . they won't report it, either . . .that is your choice.
