What would you think of someone who had an abortion

after being raped and didn't regret it?

My sister was raped at 19. She had a male "friend" walk her home and then force himself inside her dorm room and rape her.

She reported it, he got kicked out of school but the charges didn't stick and she ended up pregnant. She had an abortion and said she immediately felt better, like she would have killed herself if she continued to feel violated by being pregnant every day.

My mother is extremely pro-life, begged her not to abort and to this day their relationship is very strained, while my sister will still say it was the right choice for her.

What do you think?

Not something I would do, but it's her choice, her body, and her burden to bear.

I think if it made her feel better, it was the right choice.

I think your sister made the best choice for HER, and your mom should stop being a douche and respect that.

I would be glad she felt she made the right decision for her.

 I wouldn't think anything.  It's her life, her business and her choice.

Her choice, especially under the circumstances.

I'm so glad that she followed her own path and didn't let your mother force her to do something that just wasn't right for her.
