“Having an abortion seemed like being raped again”

Nicole went to her pastor for advice after being raped. She says that her pastor encouraged her to have an abortion with the words:

‘Let me put your mind at ease. Any decision prayerfully considered is OK in the eyes of the church. And in your case I think you should have an abortion.’

Looking back on her abortion, Nicole says:

“For me, having an abortion was like being raped again, only worse – because this time I had consented to the assault.”

    No. I was raped and the BEST decision was to abort the rape fetus. It was NOT “my baby”, it was disgusting fertilized rape backwash and I have NEVER regretted the abortion. If I were raped again and had to choose between catching gonorrhea or catching a rape fetus, I would choose gonorrhea. A rape fetus is the WORST sexually transmitted disease anyone can catch.
