I was raped, I didn’t have an abortion. My son is now two years old. I never saw my rapist so I don’t have a face to compare him to. But he’s gorgeous, and sweet, and I’m glad that I didn’t listen to everyone around me and didn’t punish my child for the sins of his father.
Your are my hero and I know you are your son’s hero. You are amazing and you are a beautiful human being.
People are quick to assign the crimes of the rapist to the innocent child as a means to provide retribution to the mother and cleanse the ‘crime scene’. Abortion is a great injustice to the child and never makes the mother feel better about the rape.
Thank you for your comments and thank you for protecting your child’s life!
