It is one thing to stand up and shout from the rafters that if you willingly have sex with someone and get pregnant that according to pro-lifers, you should have that child and I can at least in the back of my mind understand that train of thought even if I don't agree that it should be so black and white for every case, but when you say that a woman or a girl should have no rights to her own body AT ALL in the case of rape or incest, we as a society are okaying crimes against women. We are saying "it's okay" to rape a child, it's okay if a father has sex with his daughter, it is okay to violate a woman. We are agreeing that crime is okay and these women who have already been violated, have absolutely no say about what happens to their bodies as a result of crimes against them. This is the true personification of "A Handmaid's Tale," except this is reality.
Do these people not have daughters? They are willing to look their daughter who's just been raped in the eye and say she has no choice after she was already forced not to have a choice in the violation of her body? We already know incest can lead to children with severe abnormalities let alone the heinous nature of this act, and that is fine? How do you put the responsibility of raising a child onto someone who may be 13, 14, 15 with no support, no help, etc? They didn't choose to get raped or violated by family members or to get pregnant of their own free will.
As for now at least, Roe v. Wade is still enforceable, and the point of these new anti-abortion laws is apparently to challenge Roe V. Wade, but at what cost? I am an absolute firm believer that in the case of consensual sex, the only people who should have a choice in what happens to a potential child, if not the woman, are the two people who were in that bed, the man and woman, and in the case of incest, rape, it should 100% be the choice of the woman as to what she wants to do.
What are you thoughts? Are you okay with not allowing women to chose when it comes to rape/incest and why?
