No matter what the father did to you the child has nothing to do with it... So i'd say give the unborn child a chance to live...

first I do not think that most rapes end up with a pregnancy. That is probably a relatively rare occurrence... that being said, if I were unfortunately raped and that crime resulted in a pregnancy - no, I would not willfully abort the pregnancy. The crime is not the child's fault. Whether or not I choose to raise the child myself I do not know. I think that is a difficult question to answer unless you actually find yourself in that circumstance. If I were a single woman I probably would not raise the child myself but offer her/him up for adoption to a family that I admire and trust. Being that I am married that decision would also be incumbent upon the feelings of my family towards the subject.

Alright! being a rape victim is not an easy case. Weather to abort the baby or not it depends on the situation. IF will be based on this circumstances my answer will be like this. 1. If you had been raped by one of your family member, most probably you go for an abrtion, i mean i would absolutely go for an abortion. How demonic is that one of my relative to do it to me. 2. If rape, occurs outside ur home, means other person had raped u. Maybe there is a possibility you can stand on carrying the baby unto your womb and go for either adoption or personally care for the baby. 3. If rape happens, many of the guys raped u and had experienced severe violence on that events. Most probably, i'll go on an abortion. To sum up, it relies on how traumatic the events was on my part to go for an abortion.
