Abortion in Cases of Rape: Why Not Kill the Guilty Rapist Before the Innocent Child

By John-Henry Westen

In Canada and most other liberal countries capital punishment is outlawed and usually opposed by a healthy majority of the population. That is all well and good. I too oppose capital punishment in those nations where the penal system is sufficient to keep dangerous criminals out of harms way.

However, many of these so-called liberal countries, accept abortion, and most began their acceptance of abortion with accepting abortion in the hard cases of rape and incest.ÂÂ

However, in a civilized country we punish the guilty and not the innocent. So why are we suggesting capital punishment for the innocent unborn child rather than the guilty rapist?ÂÂ

We do not usually suggest criminal penalty for the children of those who commit crimes so why are we suggesting capital punishment for the child of the rapist?

Secondly, abortion is harmful to the women that undergo it. Childbirth is a natural function that women’s bodies were made for. Abortion is not. Abortion is a traumatic event psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and physically.ÂÂ

Why are we giving more trauma to the victim of rape by encouraging her to abort her child?ÂÂ

Carrying such a child to term has been for many women a help in coming to grips with the abuse they suffered. Many victims of rape and children born of such attacks have testified to these truths.

For more information on the harmful effects of abortion on womenÂwe suggest contacting Silent No More Awareness Campaign.
