Transference Of Guilt

This comment references this post.

To the person who lost her sister, the same happened to me under different circumstances. My mom was raped by a coworker and a baby was conceived. I don’t think there is a day that goes by that my mother does not regret her choice even though she was raped, because not only did she choose to abort a life, the actual experience for her was terrible. She is now a strong advocate for the pro-life/anti-abortion movement.

Most people’s first reaction to a pregnancy resulting from rape is to assign the criminal act of the father to the innocent child through transference of guilt.

What’s interesting about this logic is that we would never put a rapist to death, but we do not hesitate to execute their innocent children.
