“I DON’T DESERVE DEATH FOR MY FATHER’S CRIME”

Help us to see life as you do, Lord!

I’m the President of Save The 1 – a global pro-life organization of over 450  who were conceived in rape (like me) and mothers who became pregnant by rape who are either raising their children, birthmothers, or post-abortive.  Additionally, we have hundreds who were told to abort due to a prenatal diagnosis.  We value life and urge the Republic of Ireland to preserve the 8th Amendment.

It is simply barbaric to punish an innocent child for someone else’s crime. Punish rapists, not babies. I did not deserve the death penalty for the crime of my biological father. My own birthmother tried to kill me at 2 illegal abortions, and was pro-choice when we met 28 years ago, but today, we are thankful we were both protected from the horror of abortion, just as the women and children of Ireland are protected today.

Legalizing abortion for rape or other exceptions would send a message to our people group that our lives are worth less than anyone else’s.  Imagine having an exception in cases of Asian babies, Jewish babies, or left-handed babies.  The message sent is that these people are not worthy of living and did not deserve to be protected like everyone else.  There would be an international outcry if such discrimination were even proposed.

Yet, it is the same for us, and we feel the sting of such hatred against or apathy toward our lives.  The rape survivor mothers grieve how their children are systematically targeted and devalued, and they are not believed they were raped because they didn’t abort and because they actually love their children.

We appreciate concern for rape victims, but they are 4 times more likely to die within the next year after an abortion, as opposed to giving birth.  In Dr. David Reardon’s book, Victims and Victors: Speaking Out About Their Pregnancies, Abortions and Children Resulting From Sexual Assault, he cites the research done on the subject.  After an abortion, rape victims have a higher murder rate, suicide, drug overdose, etc..

Rapists, child molesters and sex traffickers love abortion, which destroys the evidence and enables them to continue perpetrating.  Oftentimes, a girl’s own mother has been either trafficking her or leaving her unprotected.  It is always the baby who exposes the rape, who delivers her out of the abusive situation, protecting her and bringing her healing.  So if you care about rape victims, you must protect her from the rapist and from the abortion, and not the baby!

  1. Thou shalt not kill.
    Exodus 20:13 KJV

    There are no exceptions here. We decry school shootings, murders, even the death penalty, but condone abortion, tv violence, and violent video games.

    When God is left out, Satan reigns.

    Dear God remember your people and have mercy on us. Show us our need for repentance and bring us back to You for You only are our salvation. John 3:16.

  2. The crime must be addressed! The infant must be saved & their right to live must be placed above that of the crime of the rapist! Too many people are waiting to share their love with those who are unwanted! To say, “Only what I feel in this moment due to this situation” will not help. My own mom was raped in her teens. She never confronted the issue, & by not doing so, everyone in our home was a victim of the rage she carried on the inside. Getting rid of the infant isn’t the answer! Confronting the issue that occurred to the victim is!

    1. Amen to Deborah Stevens. Instead of confronting the crimes and the perpetrators, people and esp. lawmakers are trying to blame the victim and make the problem go away by getting rid of the baby (the evidence). Our society and our world are so backward and messed up by listening to satan’s lies instead of God’s promises. Oh God, help us; save us from our own evil minds and hearts. Lord God, stir the hearts of “mankind”; Lord awaken America before we (sinful man) completely destroy what you have established. Thank you oh, God for the witness and the story of these like Deborah and Rebecca; bless their lives and their stories to help others. Thank you, Father God, for your plan of salvation and your amazing grace through Jesus Christ for mankind.
