Are you 100% pro-life?
We’ve all heard someone say: “I’m pro-life… except in cases of rape,” or “I’m pro-choice, especially in cases of rape!” Justice demands that only perpetrators pay for their crimes. We must not punish innocent children for someone else’s crime.
Rape and abortion are wrong for the same reason; they are both violent acts of aggression against another person. If you really care about rape victims, you should want to protect them from the rapist, and from the abortion, and NOT the baby. A baby is not the worst thing which can happen to a rape victim — an abortion is.
“While insulting those of us conceived in rape, they actually inadvertently are admitting the truth that we were a baby or a child while unborn. You never hear them say “rape fetus” or “fetus of the rapist!” ALWAYS “rape baby” or “child of the rapist”…
“Look, you can be pro-soldier and not pro-war. You can be pro-firefighter and not pro-arson. You can be pro-law enforcement and not pro-crime — even though it’s true that without crime, there’d be no law enforcement. You can also be against IVF and against adultery, but support protecting the lives of unborn children conceived via those methods.” (Rebecca Kiessling)
Save The 1’s mission is to educate everyone on why all pre-born children should be protected by law and accepted by society, without exception and without compromise. Further, we wish to educate prolife advocates, legislatures, leaders, and clergy on how to articulate a proper defense of children conceived in rape or incest, as well as those with special needs.
