Bonnie, I believe life begins at conception. Therefore, yes--even if I was BRUTALLY raped and got pregnant, I would have the baby. I've had this discussion with my oldest daughter and she agrees as well. If you believe that life begins at conception, but that there are valid reasons to END that life, then what's the difference between that and going and killing a rapist's 3 year old?
Would it be traumatic for the mother? Absolutely. Why does nobody care about the trauma to the unborn child?
