If you were raped and got pregnant, would your husband accept the child?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 I asked my husband this and he looked at me like I had 2 heads. He assumed I would use the morning after pill, and if that didn't work, get an abortion. So I do not think he would be too pleased if I kept the child.

I wouldn't keep it. I have before and it was the hardest thing ever.

I sure as hell wouldn't keep the rapist's offspring!  I'd be running for a d&c immediately after finding out I was pregnant.

I would take the morning after pill. If it didn't work, my husband would support any decision I made. I believe I would choose to have the baby.

I wouldn't accept it...  I would have used a morning after pill or abortion.  I wouldn't want a child from rape...  I can imagine there are those that keep the child, but its not something I would do.

We are actually in that situation except that was a lot of the reason we got married. He is amazing :)

He said he would. I don't know that I could live with a constant reminder though.

Whatever I decided,my hubby would stand by me.

He has said no but he knows I won't abort and I know he doesn't believe in abortion so we both shred to hope it never happens and get counseling and make the best of it if it ever did happen. I'd take the morning after pill though in hopes that it would be prevented.
