Quoting Uncle Obama's Banana:" Yup. I feel exactly the same way. I don't care if they want to call me selfish. I couldn't do it. Obviously ... [snip!] ... Hell if I got pregnant right now from SO I would want to abort. But I definitely couldn't do adoption. It would kill me."


There is no way, on the face of this earth, I could do adoption



I mean, unless I was homeless or committed and needed to give Cora to someone to ensure her survival and happiness.

I know what you mean. I do too

Even then though I would literally go crazy unless they went to one of my close family. I literally can not fathom the thought of my children being raised by another person :(

If I was raped and abortion wasn't an option, probably kill myself damn. How sad :?

Raped or not, I'd keep the pregnancy.

Quoting lovinthem04:" I am honestly asking how rape makes the baby any less yours? I'm not saying that it wouldn't be incomprehensibly ... [snip!] ... to keep the baby, nor am I saying that you have to keep it. I am just wondering why the baby isn't part of you at that point."


I was never raped myself thankfully, but from what I've seen/heard from those who have been pregnant from rape; they wouldn't want any part of the rapist inside of them. It would be like psychological torture to be reminded that a piece of him was growing inside you, as some women have described it. It would also be tough to look at a child and not remember how she or he came about, which may lead to resentment. And of course, having such feelings towards the child would be very unfair for the child.



I don't agree with abortion myself, and I see myself keeping the baby in such a scenario. But I could never judge someone who chose to do so because of such reasons. Mainly because I was never raped and have no idea what it's like to be a victim of it.
Hope I helped some way in answering your questions. =)

If it were my SO's I would keep it.
A rapist's I'm not sure. I'd definitely leave adoption on the table though.

Yes because that's obviously going to ensure the child is in a loving environment and all when you force the mother to have them when they don't want them/

My sister is a doctor so for me abortion would always be an option.

I have no idea what I would do if I were faced with a pregnancy stemming from rape, honestly. I want to say I would be able to give the child up for adoption, but I don't know if I could ever go through with adoption after carrying a baby for 9 months. It would be such a tough situation and I can't give an honest answer here until I were actually faced with it.

I freaking hate that saying



Being old enough to have sex does not mean one is responsible enough to be a parent. And it's unrealistic to expect people to ONLY have sex to procreate
