"In both Britain and the United States, the legalization of abortion on demand followed public acceptance of abortion as a justifiable "treatment" for rape and incest pregnancies. Once this exception was allowed, there was no rational basis for banning abortions in other cases..." - Victims and Victors, Reardon, Makimaa & Sobie
Proponents of abortion
- assume that abortion is beneficial for victims of sexual assault.
- They also assume that such women desire the opportunity to abort their children.
Both assumptions lack clinical, medical, psychological or experiential support.
- No woman who has carried her baby to term either regrets it or reports negative effects.
- While, most women who have aborted report that their abortion caused more long-term damage than the assault; and relate how they were pressured to have abortions by ignorant counselors, family, and society in general.
Book: Victims and Victors, is a must-read resource to get the facts. It is the only actual study of the issue in which 192 women and 55 of their children tell their stories.
We beseech Thee, O Lord: pour Thy grace into our hearts; that, as we have known the incarnation of Thy Son Jesus Christ by the message of the angel; so by His cross and Passion we may be brought unto the glory of His resurrection, through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. (Annunciation)
