Planned Parenthood Preys on the Sexually Abused

“It’s really bad, but I think it should be allowed for situations like rape and incest. But as birth control, it’s awful,” he explained.

“Ok, I can certainly understand your concern for rape victims. Rape is one of the most horrific things that can happen to anyone, and rapists should be punished to the full extent of the law.

But let me tell you a story real quick about a girl I met on a college campus a little while back. I was doing an outreach like this one, when this girl walked up to me and asked what my thoughts were on abortion in the case of rape.

I said, ‘I don’t think a child should be punished for the crimes of the father,’ and immediately tears started streaming down her face. She grabbed my arm and said, ‘Thank you for saying that, because I was conceived in rape.’ 

This girl felt devalued for much of her life because everyone used her as an example of a person you can kill, simply because of her circumstance, not because of anything she had done.”

“Wow… Man, never thought of it that way. Yeah, I don’t think it should ever be legal.”

I nodded my head, and, pointing to the image of an aborted baby, said, “Yeah, and you know what, when I see what happened to the child on this sign, I don’t know whether they were conceived in rape, or incest, or any situation like that. I do know that that’s a baby, and it’s not okay to do that to them.”

“Man, you made me tear up!”

The victims of rape in our culture are exploited far more than once in their lifetimes. The abortion industry has used them for many years to sell their poisonous solution. And it works. It is instinctual to go above and beyond for victims of unspeakable abuse and hatred. We naturally want to lighten the load as much as possible.

Planned Parenthood takes advantage of that instinct and preys on the sympathy of the whole and the pain of the few. Through injustice they sell injustice, until the collective conscience of an entire nation is washed in the blood of victims we thought we were protecting and victims we hadn’t even considered.

The same day I met the girl conceived in rapeI met another girl. She told me she was raped, and she got an abortion shortly after. What pained her to this day above all else was the abortion. In her view, when she was raped, she knew it wasn’t her fault. She couldn’t believe the same about her abortion, and the thought of what she did left lasting anguish.

The very reason we oppose rape is the exact same reason we oppose abortion: they both hurt innocent human beings.

It is for this reason that healing after rape and abortion is very difficult. The victims of rape have context for what injustice is. They know what it’s like to be defenseless and vulnerable, and they know how horrible it is for someone to take advantage of that.

When they go in for an abortion, they feel tremendous guilt knowing that they committed an injustice against their child similar to the one they received. Except for with the child, there is no coming back from the abyss in which we would have them cast. Abortion makes rape worse.

Our team has talked to many men and women who for years denied the guilt they felt from abortion, even women who advocated for it. After years of advocacy, these same women have expressed to us that they denied what they had felt all along— shame at what they had done.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
