Just about the worst way of coming into the world that you can imagine. So horrible, it is a given that politicians who regularly approve restrictions on abortion allow for exceptions in case of it. But now some people are coming out of the closet. They are the ones whose life would have been at stake--the ones conceived in rape.
In each of their cases, the rape victim found support; she found a way to protect the second victim; she let an incredible good be born from a vile and violent crime.
Interesting how many of those speaking out now are, precisely, women.
Susan is one of them.
Here's Rebecca Kiessling, probably the most prominent of these people with a dramatic story to tell. She has a whole website devoted to the issue, with story after story of people whose life was, even at its very start, sacred and inviolable. Many, having been raised by adoptive parents, were pro-life; many did not learn the circumstances of their conception until later in life. (You can imagine what that did to the "rape exception" some of them had formerly wanted to allow.)
Maybe, in this week before elections, it's time to listen to them.
