This morning I woke up with a very heavy heart. A few days ago, I read an article on Lifenews.com about the 20-week pain capable bill, which would make it illegal for abortions after 20 weeks because the baby feels pain. What bothers me greatly is that this bill has the rape, incest and special needs exceptions in it. Congresswoman Renee Ellmers suggests that a woman should only let her doctor know about the rape and no one else.
When I read this, it did not set well with me. I immediately thought about Norma McCorvey, who lied and said that she was raped so that she could have an abortion. I thought if the rape does not have to be reported, this could happen again and could cause more abortions instead of less.
I was conceived in rape, and I had a biological great-aunt who wanted me to be aborted. I thank God that my birthmother said no and did what was Biblical and chose life.
Coming from someone who was conceived in rape, I pray you will take a minute to hear what I have to say. If you were not conceived in rape and had a family member that wanted you aborted, would you put yourself in my shoes for a minute? Should I have to pay for the crime that my birth father did? I don’t think so, as I was the innocent one. My birthfather should be the one who had to pay since he is the one who committed the crime. Society likes to call people conceived in rape, “the rapist child, monster’s child, a product of rape and an evil seed.” They are wrong, and since I have been sharing my story, I have got in contact with others who were conceived in rape. They are precious people with a caring heart and are making a difference. They were created in the image of God. I have also read the stories of women who were raped and having their baby brought them healing.
Even though my birth mother placed me for adoption, she told me I have always loved you and that I was the beginning of her healing process.
The devil is the one who wants to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus said I have come to give you life and life more abundantly.
