Conceived in rape: did I have the right to live?

In Randy Alcorn’s book Why Pro-Life?, A  person conceived in rape speaks out about how painful it is to hear people justify abortion in cases of rape:

“My mother was raped as a thirteen-year-old. She gave birth to me, then gave me up for adoption. Every time I’ve heard people say abortion is okay in cases of rape, I’ve thought, ‘Then I guess I have no right to live.’ “

Randy Alcorn Why Pro-Life? Caring for the Unborn and Their Mothers (Hendrickson Publishers, 2011) 81
