Many persons agree that abortion is bad, at the same time, they concede that it is justifiable on the ground of rape, incest or where the continued pregnancy will be harmful to the mother’ health. This is seen in many legislations including the violence against persons law passed in Imo state, Nigeria, last year.

I have tried several times to understand this logic but since it is illogical it cannot be understood with a logical mind. Is it that the child resulting from rape is not a child? or is it that the child would be different from other children on the basis that he/she was conceived through rape, if the child is born, is it written on the child’s fore head that he was conceived from rape. I do not think so, there are many persons who were conceived through sexual assault and as expected are like every one else, some are lawyers, judges ,doctors etc.

One of such persons is Rebecca Kiessling, who is a Michigan-based lawyer, and she is spending her life teaching the obvious truth that every child is the same and needs protection and love. Her story has done a lot of good.

Thanks to Lifesitenews.com we have this to share:

The story of an American woman who was conceived in rape convinced a German rape victim not to abort her baby.

Pro-life activist Rebecca Kiessling was fathered by a rapist, but given a chance to live. The Michigan-based lawyer now regularly shares her story and is active in the organization Save the 1, dedicated to protecting all children from abortion.

“A friend of mine was raped last year,” the German reader told Kiessling. “When she noticed she was pregnant, she did not know what to do.”

“She browsed the Internet for help and found your website and your story,” the reader continued. “After that it was clear to her to keep and love her baby.”

“So, you and your story saved her and the baby,” the German woman recounted.

The reader also commended Kiessling’s battle to safeguard rape victims and their children from further contact with their assailants. “I also love your fight for rapists not getting any parenting rights so that women and their babies can live in peace and without fear,” she said.

Kiessling is one of a growing number of people to speak up for the dignity and potential of children conceived from the most offensive crimes.

She, Ryan Bomberger, Pam Stenzel, Monica Kelsey, and others engage in pro-life activism nationally, telling audiences – and wavering mothers like her reader – of the grateful and fulfilling lives they lead.

Kiessling said she hopes this German rape victim’s decision serves as “an example to others not to be ashamed of your own difficult stories – whatever it may be – because you can make a difference!”

N.B..Please, it should not be understood that i am encouraging the rape of women, I am only saying that all children should be loved and protected not minding if their mothers were raped or not. Rather our interest should be in arresting and prosecuting the reckless persons who defiled their mothers since rape is a crime against humanity most especially motherhood and it is unfair to place culpability on the child who is innocent.



  1. About 50% of children conceived from rape are aborted. The numbers are probably higher, but there are also miscarriages. The number of rape babies carried to term in the West is very low.

    For a very good reason. How vile to suggest that women’s wishes and bodies should be subject to ongoing trauma, just because one or two people have had a happy ending.

    Thank goodness women still have options.

    • you are very wrong to suggest that many women freely choose to abort their babies, it is the society, which harbors thousands of people like you that force them to abort their babies. unfortunately you think you are doing them any good rather you are inflicting more harm on them.
      pregnancy is not a trauma it is a joy and it is the climax of womanhood

      • pregnancy is not a trauma

        Oh really?

        Just a partial listing from the link:

        complications of episiotomy
        spousal/partner abuse
        hyperemesis gravidarum
        temporary and permanent injury to back
        severe scarring requiring later surgery
        (especially after additional pregnancies)
        dropped (prolapsed) uterus (especially after additional pregnancies, and other pelvic floor weaknesses — 11% of women, including cystocele, rectocele, and enterocele)
        pre-eclampsia (edema and hypertension, the most common complication of pregnancy, associated with eclampsia, and affecting 7 – 10% of pregnancies)
        eclampsia (convulsions, coma during pregnancy or labor, high risk of death)
        gestational diabetes
        placenta previa
        anemia (which can be life-threatening)
        thrombocytopenic purpura
        severe cramping
        embolism (blood clots)
        medical disability requiring full bed rest (frequently ordered during part of many pregnancies varying from days to months for health of either mother or baby)
        diastasis recti, also torn abdominal muscles
        mitral valve stenosis (most common cardiac complication)
        serious infection and disease (e.g. increased risk of tuberculosis)
        hormonal imbalance
        ectopic pregnancy (risk of death)
        broken bones (ribcage, “tail bone”)

        So, before you engage in any more reckless happy pregnancy talk, check the facts first.
