Abortion in the case of Rape
 
The Christians like to forbid abortion in case of rape. They always accompany that ban with the assertion, "Few women that are raped get pregnant."
 
That is really like saying, "I am not confident that abortion should be forbidden in cases of rape so I comfort myself with the thought that if I am wrong to be against it I am not doing much harm for only a few need abortion over rape."
 
The bottom line for the believers is that it is not the baby's fault how it originated and so its life should not be taken.
 
The disadvantage of such a position is that some women will reason, "Abortion is murder. So it makes no difference if I have the abortion earlier or later if I choose to." That only leaves them risking further trauma by having a later abortion. Abortion is better the earlier it is conducted.
 
Liberals argue that if an opinion or religion or doctrine endorses violence or murder then it should not be respected or tolerated. The religionist then cannot be sincerely anti-abortion if he or she tolerates any person or religion that permits abortion. His anger towards people or religions who encourage or permit abortion must know no bounds.
