This is probably going to be one of the hardest things I ever will write. It has been brought to my attention that there are comedians who will use rape as being funny. Rape is horrific and traumatic. It is not something that you joke about. Yesterday, while on Facebook an article in Newsweek showed up. I tried to read it, but could not finish it. The article is very disgusting and sickening. Pure Evil. The article quotes Adrienne Truscott, saying, “….eating an infant conceived by rape, the way gerbils sometimes consume their own babies.”
Talking with my husband late last night about the article, he told me put ten people in a row and let me guess which one was conceived in rape. I would not be able to tell, he said. He also told me that is discrimination.
I was conceived in rape, and I have a very hard time understanding as to why society treats us like trash being crushed in the garbage compactor. What makes us any different? It is all because of the reason of our conception.
I got to thinking about the rape conceived being referenced to gerbils eating their young. I did some research, Why do Gerbils eat their young? “Gerbils eat their young when a baby gerbil has died, the mother gerbil will eat their young if she feels stressed, and gerbils will eat their young mainly when they feel that the babies are insecure.”
Just sickening having those conceived in rape being referenced to gerbils eating their young. When a woman is raped it would be natural for her to feel stressed but having an abortion will only add more stress. Support the mother and allow that precious baby that God is creating in the womb of the mother to bring healing to the mother. Since I have been sharing my rape conception story I have come across others who were conceived in rape, and they have the backbone to stand up for the life of the pre-born babies, they are grateful for their life and thankful for their mothers choosing life. The rape conceived are not insecure people. We are people who are firm in what we believe, and that is taking a stand and speaking up for those who have no voice.
