I’ll start out by saying that the quotes given (are they freakin’ KIDDING???!!!!!) infuriated me, even though I am strongly pro-life, and yes, even in the case of rape.
Now, before anyone judges, attacks or flames me in any way, for example, “You wouldn’t feel that way if you’d ever been raped!”
I was raped.
I’m speaking as a woman who survived being raped with a knife held to my throat. It was date rape. And I was a virgin! And that’s all the details I will give.
When the shock wore off, I told my Mom and my stepfather, “If I’m pregnant, I will NOT have an abortion.”
As it turned out, I wasn’t pregnant, but that’s when I found out how strongly pro-life I am.
Some of you may think that it’s only because I’m a Catholic that I feel this way, but the rape occurred before my conversion, before I had any idea that I was going to join the Catholic Church.
One more thing I need to say. I do not in any way judge any woman who has had an abortion. It is not my right
to judge; I’m not God.
