There is no such thing as a “rape gene”, that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard. I remember once, I was getting in a debate with one of my friends regarding children born of rape, and she said, “Kids who are born because of rape will grow up wanting to rape others! They should be aborted!” I'm like...hold it...really? That's super offensive and super idiotic, because that's not true. A basic course in psychology will tell you that.
Part of this story I got from my own life story, because my sister and I attended my mother's graduation . She had us right after high school, but still completed college, and is a very successful teacher, so education is something very important to us.
I'm actually in my senior year of high school right now, and unfortunately, my father.(..dad...idk what to call him, he left before we were born, and we haven't seen him since. Idk even know what he looks like) won't be there to see us graduate. Hope he's living it up wherever he is. Can't say i'm too angry at him though, it's too much effort to hold a 17 year grudge. Even a 1 hour grudge is too hard for me.
Also, I wanted to write about how hard it is for mothers to do this, especially with no support, and people thinking that it's shameful to keep their rapist baby's. I for one think it's incredibly brave, and kudos to any woman whose gone through this, because you are a super hero. And kudos to any man whose been able to pick a woman up off of her feet, and foster a child whose been created by such unfortunate means.
And kudos to the kid too.
Hope you liked it! Please do give me your feedback.
I'd feel sad for her, no anger or anything like that, just sad.
Because I feel like they've lost something. Though later on, I suppose I won't feel much emotion towards women who get abortions, if they're not asking for it, though in inkling of sorrow will remain within me. I guess it's better to say I feel sorry for what's being aborted rather than who're getting the abortion.
Your story just makes me so very happy! I've never been for abortion in any circumstances, partly because I believe that a baby is a life, and that it has potential! So I'm so glad that your mother decided to keep you and place you in a loving family. It's also pretty neat that you're still in contact with her, as many of my friends who're adopted aren't in contact with their bio-families, and they feel so alone and misplaced. It takes a real toll on them, but i'm extremely happy for you, and kudos to your birth mother, and your family.
Thank you for the comment, and for the bit about Senior year. Btw, I love your icon! I can't wait for season 4, the creators say it's going to be devastating for Sherlock himself, and when the actors got the scrips, they were tearing up! So i'm extremely excited.
In general, women aren't looked down if they abort their rapist baby, because the overall idea is that a baby born out of rape is a monster, that's where the bullshit rape gene comes to play. They're actually looked down upon if they keep the baby more, which is pretty sad, but courageous of the mothers.
