Pro-lifers react to GOP candidate attacks on Cruz / Rubio over abortion for rape

Rubio Cruz abortion rape

Two of the top presidential contenders, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have come under criticism from Republican leaders because they ardently oppose abortions in cases of rape. While Rubio and Cruz oppose abortion exceptions for cases of rape, Trump supports them. Now, a national pro-life organization with hundreds of thousands of members is urging the rest of the GOP presidential field not to follow suit.

In an open letter addressed to Governors Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Jim Gilmore, John Kasich, along with Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, the Susan B. Anthony list urge what they called, “a swift and decisive end to the attacks other candidates and their surrogates are making concerning the courageous pro-life positions of Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.” The letter is in response to a litany of statements which mirror more of a Planned Parenthood position on abortion than a pro-life one from GOP presidential candidates who claim they are pro-life.

In an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie implied that Rubio’s position against an abortion rape exception would hurt him in New Hampshire.

Chris Christie MSNBC Rubio abortion

“That’s the kind of position that New Hampshire voters would be really concerned about. I’m pro-life, but I believe that rape, incest and life of the mother, as Ronald Reagan did, should be exceptions to that rule.”

“I will tell you one thing Marco Rubio has done: He has made it very clear that on the issue of pro-life, Marco Rubio is not for an exception for rape, incest, or life of the mother.”

“Now… you know I think that’s the kind of position that I think New Hampshire voters would be concerned about.”

Rubio on abortion rape

In his defense, Rubio recently told CNN that he believes that all human life, even those conceived in rape, must be protected. “I personally believe that you do not correct one tragedy with a second tragedy.”

Live Action president, Lila Rose, has also referred to abortions for rape as a second act of violence, telling Sean Hannity in a recent Fox News interview that, “I think we can do better for women who are victims of sexual abuse and trauma to say that abortion is somehow a pathway to healing. Abortion is not a pathway to healing; it’s another violent act.”

Juda Myers, founder of the pro-life group, Choices4Life which advocates for the rape conceived, said that politicians who claim to be pro-life while allowing exceptions to abort children because their fathers were the criminals are the ones who are not really pro-life. Myers knows how these kind of statements affect the rape conceived after discovering that her birth mother was gang raped but lovingly chose to place her for adoption.

    “Society has put in our minds what women would and should feel about babies conceived in rape. But through my research I’ve found that women pregnant by rape do not think the way the general public thinks. Even those who previously thought they would abort find themselves feeling differently about the innocent baby inside them.

Myers said that politicians who support these kind of exceptions are really pro-choice, “100% pro-life is 100%. There is no exception. Choice for death in pregnancy is still pro choice for death,” she points out.

Lindsey Graham abortion Cruz

But, Christie is not the only GOP contender lashing out against a true pro-life position. In late fall, Live Action News reported that 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush also criticized Rubio’s opposition to abortion for rape. And now, former Republican establishment presidential candidate, Lindsey Graham, who supports Jeb Bush for president, has piled on, chiding Senator Cruz’s ardent pro-life position, telling Mike Barnicle on MSNBC:

“If a woman is raped in Ted Cruz’s world, she’s going to have to carry the baby of the rapist. I’m pro-life, but I won’t go there. I think that’s hard to sell with young women.”

Later adding that Senator Rubio does not believe in exceptions for rape either:

I may be wrong, and I hope I’m wrong, but I think it’s going to be very hard to grow the party among women if you’re gonna tell young women, ‘If you get raped, you’re gotta carry the child of the rapist.’ Most pro-life people don’t go there.

The idea that pro-life people would not defend all preborn children in the womb is a complete misunderstanding or the true pro-life position. Responding to these statements, African American rape victim and pro-life advocate Elaine Riddick told Live Action News that children of rape should be protected not destroyed. Riddick was impregnated after being raped as a teen and said that she was glad to have her son. “You just have no idea how wonderful that child has made my life,” she said.

Adding, “In the Black community at that time there was no such thing as abortion. My life would not be what it is without my son. I knew he was my child. He shaped my whole being from then to now. My son is a gift regardless of how he was conceived. He is the most beautiful thing I can see. The most positive person.”

Riddick, who is very outspoken on Planned Parenthood’s eugenic agenda suggested that politicians who support abortion for reasons of rape should not be trusted.

    “When I hear a politician say everyone deserved to live except a child conceived in rape I am shocked. Those are the ones you need to watch. I would disqualify them for the simple reason that they have no idea what a woman has to go through- no sense of worth or conscience and God’s worth. God said every life, every person is made in His image. He intended for these children to be born.”

    “A politician that says the rape conceived preborn child should be aborted or demolished- they are not religious people. I don’t think they should have the right to sit and dictate how the world should live. They do not have a sense of humanity. They should not be in the political arena…No one should be in office that doesn’t understand that every person that God intended to be on this earth -if He implanted the seed in a woman’s body than it was that child’s time to be here.”

Marjorie Dannenfelser

Marjorie Dannenfelser

In her open letter, Marjorie Dannenfelser President Susan B. Anthony List called the attacks “Planed Parenthood talking points” and she is correct. Not only does Planned Parenthood support abortion on demand at any time in the pregnancy and for any reason, but, they are notorious for using abortion to cover child rape. So, instead of GOP presidential contenders attacking the pro-life positions of Senators Rubio and Cruz they could be exposing the truth about Planned Parenthood’s dismal record on rape.

“Let me be clear: An attack on this aspect of these candidates’ pro-life positions is an attack on the pro-life movement as a whole,” she wrote.

“55 million babies have been reported to have been destroyed since Roe v Wade. The exception for rape was implemented for legal abortion yet only 1% of these 55 million are rape/incest abortions. The exception has opened the door so that all abortions can be legal. If rape/incest abortions were made illegal then ALL legal abortions would cease,” Myers said.

Pro-life group fights to end stigma of rape conception

Posted in Abortion and rape, Abortion History with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

A pro-life group is working to end the stigma of rape conception by organizing a march this spring in one of the first states that legalized abortion. It was 2003 when Juda Myers learned from a social worker that she was conceived in rape. Juda, who was adopted, discovered the brutal truth while looking for her birth mother. The shocking details about the woman who carried her in the womb and how she was gang raped set the stage for Juda’s mission to advocate on behalf of the rape conceived.

Juda Myers

The social worker’s attitude conveyed centuries of condemnation for the rape conceived,” Juda who contemplated suicide after learning the truth told Live Action News. “I was falling into a deep black abyss that brought me to the brink of a breakdown,” she said. Juda said her commitment to God kept her from doing the unthinkable, and recounted how a friend who knew nothing of the situation reminded her that God knew her before she was conceived!

Juda and her mother 239235_n

In 2005, Juda met her birth mom who was in her 70’s at the time, “I walked into the nursing home stood at the desk and was about to ask for Ann when I heard my name called from behind me. I turned to see eyes of crystal blue not unlike my own. I knew it was her. Holding a picture of me when I was only 3 months old at the time of my adoption.”

Juda has told her story a number of times pointing out that those who allow abortion exceptions in cases of rape are really saying that she should have never been born. She is passionate about the lives of every preborn child in the womb and said that hearing other moms with similar stories to her mother’s experience made her realize that no one was helping moms like them. That revelation inspired Juda to found the non-profit organization Choices4Life.

The mission of helping these mothers and speaking for what many describe as a so-called “small percentages of preborn children” has not been an easy one. Juda has been the target of abusive vitriol from abortion advocates when she posts the stories of young rape victims who choose to carry their babies to term. The so-called advocates of free choice seem to draw a line in the sand if the pregnant female is a young rape victim.

But, the prejudice against the rape conceived extends well beyond abortion advocates and even reaches into the walls of religious institutions. In fact, abortion exceptions for cases of rape were sadly written into main stream denominational resolutions before Justice Harry Blackmun wrote the Roe V. Wade decision, legalizing abortion on demand. In truth, those pro-abortion resolutions helped lay the foundation for the tragic SCOTUS decision.

Since then, church leaders inside some of these denominations have apologized for their positions and recanted the resolutions. But, the bias against the rape conceived remains ongoing. In 2013, a pastor referred to children conceived in rape as a “demon seed.” His words shocked the pro-life community and prompted the mother of a child conceived in rape to write a powerful response which read in part:

    “For too long, the rape conceived and their mothers have been targets of hate speech. The assumption is that no woman who was REALLY raped would want to carry such a baby to term. That is a lie. Using derogatory language to the woman about her child often coerces her into making a decision that puts her at risk mentally, emotionally, and physically. She may consent to an abortion in order to prove that she was actually raped or out of fear that her child will be the object of continued prejudice after birth.”

Choices4Life works tirelessly to educate society that children conceived in rape are not the criminals and have done nothing wrong. “To condemn a human for the crime of another is not justice,” Juda often points out. But rape is the cornerstone of abortion and was the lie that brought the case to the Supreme Court in 1973. It is the “necessary evil” that continues to keep abortion legal today. Juda says it is time for the pro-life community to rally around the victims of rape and not give the perception that they are expendable simply because they may be few in numbers.

Miss1966RapeException500H

Juda and her Choices4Life organization contend that if we destroy this leg of abortion deception we may very well end abortion in America. To chip away at the foundation of Roe, Choices4Life is organizing the FREEDOM MARCH #LIFEWINS event next May in Mississippi. According to the event website, the first abortion law was passed in Mississippi on May 8, 1966 and it was for cases of rape and incest. Ironically, this year, May 8th happens to fall on Mother’s Day 2016.

In addition to the march, Choices4Life is organizing what they call a “hero’s welcome” reception to “these amazing mothers who saved the life of their children conceived in rape.” The hope is that listening to the stories of the brave women who rejected the lie that a child they created is worthless simply because of the crime of their fathers, will transform those who attend.

LifeWins Abortion march

In our day tolerance is shouted on every street corner. It’s time to end the stigma of rape conception and rally around these heroic mothers who fight for the life of their baby conceived in rape. Mothers and children are not guilty of any crime and don’t deserve to be treated as criminals,” Juda writes in the Freedom March Life Wins press release.

CHOICES4LIFE helps pregnant rape and incest victims with relocation assistance, they have subsidized rent, paid utility and medical bills and offered housing in private homes for mothers in need. The non profit has reached out to victims of all races, religious and sexual orientation ranging in ages from 10 to 42 years of age. Juda has dedicated her work to her birth mother whom she calls “a Hero.” Juda lost her Hero a few years ago but is grateful God allowed them to find each other. She tells those who support Choices4Life and women she reaches out to, “Be a hero.

“A hero is defined as saving a life,”
she says.

Abortion advocates lash out on group that supports victims of rape

Posted in Abortion and rape with tags , , , , , , on May 28, 2015 by saynsumthn

There are times when good people MUST speak out and this is one of them. My friend is being attacked online by abortion advocates simply because she is willing to help support the “choice” of women and girls to NOT abort their rape conceived children.

Before you start spilling all your hate on me as well, this blog post is not about rape – it is about the hypocrisy of the left. It is about the rape victims and their right to not be made to feel like they are bad people because they did not want to abort their child.

Enter an 11 year-old pregnant rape victim.

If you call yourself pro-choice then you must believe that the “choice” whether to have an abortion or not is the pregnant girl’s alone.

Having said that, I will soon prove that, according to the advocates of abortion, if the pregnant girl happens to be an 11 year old child, somehow she should no longer be able to make the “choice” that is best for her?

CHoices for LIfe 431996546847846_707029778_n

Enter the non-profit group Choices4Life which advocates for the rape conceived and their children and for this, they are being attacked online.

Founder Juda Myers explains what motivated her to speak out, “My own mother placed me for adoption sacrificing her desires to protect me from her family who wished I was dead. Forty eight years later I found her holding a picture given to her when I was 3 months old. Overwhelmed with love and pride she was constantly affirming me and her decision to give life to me…and my two sons … and my six grandchildren!”

Myers and her organization work hard to educate the public on the fact that babies conceived in rape or incest do not deserve to be viewed as rejects of society or be targeted with death from abortion.

According to Choices4Life’s about us section on Facebook:

    We seek to change the world’s view of women and children of rape conception. The rapists alone should carry the shame. CHOICES4LIFE seeks to help women pregnant from rape with emotional as well as physical needs and to offer emotional support to children conceived in rape. We also help women who have regret aborting a rape conceived child or someone who has miscarried.

Back to that 11 year-old pregnant rape victim.

Choices4Life original

Founder, Juda Myers, posted this update of the 11 year old rape victim to her Facebook page:

    “Our 11 year old is in labor right now. She is 35 weeks and doing fantastic busting every myth out there! She is strong and holding on to her faith in the Lord.”

From reading Juda’s repeated attempts to explain what happened online, this young girl was raped by another child. She has decided that she wants her baby and has chosen life and Juda and Choices4Life are supporting her in that process.

But, we cannot say the same for the abortion radicals:

Get abortion

The haters are posting comments like this, “ Wow what mother would want her 11 yr old daughter to have a baby that was created by rape?! They should’ve got an abortion asap. I don’t really believe in abortion but if I was raped and got preg by that monsters baby I would def get an abortion. So young for her to go thru this tragedy. Wtf does god have nething to do with this. He wasn’t their when she got raped….smh..”

Another person, posting under the name Sean Roberts wrote this as he shared her page post, “I’m HIGHLY DISTURBED! LIKE PISSED OFF! Fyi this child was raped.”

Adding, “I just want to beat the living crap out of these people.”

Sean Roberts 12_8698946390633345415_n

Juda saved this screen grab below showing Sean Roberts writing what appears to be a threat, stating If I ever saw this woman I would seriously honestly go to jail for attempted murder.”

sean roberts go to jail 90203_7793236447720096544_n

Another person posted this on the Choices4Life page:

    “Please tell us what CPS has to say about you and your involvement in rape/abuse of minors.As a former SW, I will be reading your responses VERY carefully. One word out of place and/or one hint of prevarication and/or failure to respond will reveal you as a liar.”

Leslie

Another accused her of “hating children” because she and Choices4Life help victims of rape who choose to give their baby life:

Hate children

These posts on the CHoices4Life page show what pro-choice means to abortion advocates when the victim is a raped child:

Blood on hands

And there was this lovely post:

Knocked up

Not to be outdone by this pro-choice hater who wants the girl who has courageously carried her baby to term to now lose the child:

loses baby

Juda said that she gets threats and posts like this all the time for defending both victims of rape: the mother and the unborn child.

I have to say, I knew how hateful abortion advocates could be but I had no idea the vitriol that is directed at the rape conceived.

According to Juda, no one has forced this child to have the baby – she wants to have the baby. The child was impregnated by a boy her age and authorities have been alerted. Unlike, Planned Parenthood and for-profit abortion clinics which will kill the unborn baby and cover for the rapist by not reporting it to authorities, Juda is offering loving help and support to the victim.

And, for that Juda should be applauded not condemned.

Read Juda Myers’ statement on Facebook here.

UPDATE from Choices4Life:

    The 11 yr old has given birth with NO complications and with little pain. This beautifully perfect baby is the joy of the whole family. The mom will NOT have any mothering responsibilities but will be able to watch her precious baby grow. So much better than mourning the death of her baby. This mom is already healing having better things to think about now. She is being counseled by professionals on a regular basis and doing absolutely wonderfully. She maintained honor roll even though she was studying at home because bullies forced her out of public school. Sadly abuse is everywhere for these victims. CHOICES4LIFE was able to provide a complete nursery for the family as well as many other items and will continue to be available to the family at anytime!

    The 11 yr old’s advice to others like her, “Don’t listen to all those people. That baby isn’t theirs. That baby is yours!”

    I think that’s great advice at any age!

Meet baby Angel saved from abortion after being conceived in rape!

Rae Angel

By Juda Myers – ChoicesForLife

A mother could barely breathe finding out that she was pregnant after being raped by a family member. Conceived in rape is hard enough but conceived in incest has even more trauma. Having the rapist constantly near is a huge fear. First thoughts were abortion. Her head was spinning and couldn’t seem to find any solutions. A sonographer from a pregnancy center called me asking if I could talk to this young woman. This mother was wanting to go to Planned Parenthood. I knew this was a matter of life and death. After listening to literally hundreds of women telling me the best thing that could have ever happened was their baby after rape and listening to 9 women tell me aborting a rape conceived baby was the worst thing to ever happen to them, I knew abortion wouldn’t be good for this young mother either. She had other children but many times women don’t realize they are mothers when they are pregnant and this baby was hers also.

This woman would never think of hurting her other children but not holding this one in her arms made it easy to detach herself. We talked but she kept saying she wanted to abort. I begged. I cried. I gave her logical reasons not to abort but when a person is panicked logic isn’t much help. Then I offered her money not to abort. I knew she was financially hurting and wanted to let her know that part of her worries was taken care of. SaveUnbornLife is really putting their money where their heart is and they have helped CHOICES4LIFE save babies before. More than once I’ve heard pregnant women and those who promote abortion talk about the financial aspect. But what is a human life worth? Today another young mother knows that answer. It is worth her life. Her child is her life and she now has no doubts about it.

Each time I’ve offered to help financially both during and after birth it has changed the minds of mothers carrying unplanned babies. So this mom also changed her mind. And after she no longer had that financial fear she said she was ashamed to have even considered abortion. That’s how strong the pressure is on women to abort. One thing I just cannot understand is why mothers are not considering adoption in such financial stress. There is no shame in adoption. It is heroic!

Well this young mother would never think of harming her precious Angel in anyway. She is so in love she named the baby Angel. Joy unspeakable is hers now because she chose life. CHOICES4LIFE honored her with a baby shower and even gave her a complete baby bed with sheets and bumper pads too. Mom has no regrets and is feeling great. The other children are thrilled to have a new member of the family. This baby is loved beyond words. CHOICES4LIFE will continue to support this mom and family with love, counseling, financial help and other resources when needed as this child grows to be a wonderful part of society. We save babies but we also save moms from the pain of abortion. She is so very grateful someone cared enough to stop her from making a horrible choice that would hurt for the rest of her life.

If you need help carrying a child to term or raising a child conceived in rape please contact us. If you’ve aborted or miscarried a baby conceived in rape we are here to help you also. We understand the value of your baby.

Juda Myers is available to speak/sing at any event. Please contact info@choicese4life.org

Black Pastor responds to Bishop who called children conceived in rape “Demon Seed”

Posted in Black Church, Black Conservative, Black Pastor, Church pro-abortion, Clenard Childress, Demon Seed, Rape and Abortion with tags , , , , , , on March 25, 2014 by saynsumthn

mortonRecently a Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. told a panel of religious people that if a woman is raped and becomes pregnant that God did not create that child, rather it is a product of a DEMON SEED.

At the 2013 Pastors and Ministry Workers Conference in Nashville, Morton ridiculed the Republican Party’s stance on abortion, “A man rapes you on the street from a demon seed and you’ve got to have that baby from a demon seed, that’s not what God conceived. You’re hav’n your daddy’s baby. [mocking tone] “No we’ve got to have it because we don’t believe in abortion” We don’t believe in abortion but, my God, have some common sense.” (Watch Video Here) NOTE – If video has been removed, you can listen to the audio here !

This angered many Pastors, pro-life leaders, and born people conceived in rape.

childress1

In an editorial published by Black News Rev. Dr. Clenard H. Childress, Jr. responds, “Bishop Paul Morton is a little confused and doesn’t remember what dispensation he is in. During the time of Noah, it is written, fallen Angels – Demonic beings – had sexual relations with women on the earth and produced giants – hybrid, unredeemable, monstrous beings. Because of these individuals, God destroyed the earth through the flood and started again with those who accompanied Noah in the Ark, eight individuals in all. The scripture from that point suggests fallen angels and humans producing Demonic progeny had ended. The point is: only a Demon or Devil can produce a “Demon Seed” or an actual child of the Devil. Bishop Paul Morton is under the impression that common everyday male human beings, through deliberate acts of lust and/or sexual violence, can create a demonic being that would thence be unredeemable. Biology would teach us that only a demon can produce a “Demon Seed”. Human beings can only produce human beings. Genesis declares everything produces seed after its own kind. Though often susceptible to demonic influence, humans through natural intercourse either by consent, or rape, cannot in point of fact, produce a demonic being. Yes, I know that some of you school teachers out there are shaking your heads, but this is unquestionably true!”

Childress continues, “Far more critical than the Bishop’s derision, is his present position as a Senior Pastor and Bishop, which readily enables him to not only confuse far more individuals than himself, but also demean unstable, broken souls looking for solace. The Bishop is apparently unaware that many persons – the progeny of victims of rape and incest – are sitting quietly in our pews. Imagine those seeking refuge and peace-of-mind in the church, those who would come into our sanctuaries seeking sanctuary, and then hear a sermon preached from the pulpit telling them in no uncertain terms, they are the progeny of Lucifer

Demon Seed…?” When you discuss Louis Armstrong, the world renowned jazz trumpeter who was inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame, and regarded by many as the most famous Jazz musician in the world, do you ever think of him as a demon seed? Yet he was the product of rape and incest. Let’s consider the Abolitionist, Preacher, autobiographer, bank president, and US Marshal by the name of Fredrick Douglass. Can we name another African-American who has made a greater contribution to this country in his time? “Demon Seed…?” Satan had nothing to do with Fredrick Douglass’ success, and he, too, was the product of rape. How about Michelangelo?…”

Childress says, “Bishop Paul Morton also has done far too much to further the Gospel, to be a mentor, and positive example to the church, as well as its clergy, to have it negated by an ill-conceived statement, so I would ask he rethink his words, recanting his statement, lest he ill advisedly demonize a segment of our society needing our understanding and loving affirmation… What ever happen to, “do unto others as your mother did unto you….”

After Julia Schoch heard what this supposed “Man of God” had said, she wrote a beautiful tribute to her adopted daughter who was rape conceived.

JuliaSchochSMheadJulia is the director of Respond for Life and her daughter was conceived in rape. According to Julia, her daughter’s birthmother was only 13 years old. She said she was told by the abortion clinic staff that “no one will want a biracial rapist’s baby.” They refused to let her see the ultrasound picture and, although she was 20 weeks pregnant, told her that her baby wasn’t formed yet. They also told her that she was “too young” and would die if she tried to have the baby.

Julia describes the decision that her daughter’s birthmother went thru, “She gave in, believing that she would die trying to have a baby no one would even want. The doctor began a second-trimester abortion under only local anesthesia. They never explained fetal development, the procedure, risks, options, etc. She was in so much pain that the doctor stopped and rescheduled the abortion, telling her mom to bring more money for general anesthesia because “she is making my job too difficult.” She then got accurate information and took a stand for her unborn daughter. Her attempted abortion was not a cavalier decision; she was only offered an uneducated and coerced “choice.” She believed the shame wasn’t in aborting but that the shame would be in having a “rapist’s baby.” They made her feel like it was wrong and dangerous to even consider giving birth to a baby conceived in rape.”

I was in the room when my daughter was born; the birthmother’s older sister was her labor coach. It was an amazing experience. The birthmother’s own mother, who initially wanted the baby aborted, instantly fell in love with this little girl. I honestly think people were expecting the baby to have horns or to be a mini-rapist. Yet out comes this fat-cheeked, curly-haired little thing with the prettiest green eyes — everyone was crying tears of joy! I went straight to the young birthmother and just held her and cried. I said, “You did it! You did it! She is here!” She replied, “Thank you! You were right. She is worth it.”

Below is Julia’s response to Bishop Morton calling Rape Conceived Children “Demon Seeds”:

My Child is NOT a Demon ~ RFL Dir. Julia Schoch
January 25, 2014 at 3:00pm

For too long, the rape conceived and their mothers have been targets of hate speech. The assumption is that no woman who was REALLY raped would want to carry such a baby to term. That is a lie. Using derogatory language to the woman about her child often coerces her into making a decision that puts her at risk mentally, emotionally, and physically. She may consent to an abortion in order to prove that she was actually raped or out of fear that her child will be the object of continued prejudice after birth.

Consider the effect on rape conceived persons when the world calls the fetus in the womb a demon seed or the spawn of the devil that deserves death. What message does that send to those children and adults who were rape conceived, yet are now born? Talk about your self esteem issues!

Some of the frequent questions we heard from people concerning the adoption of our daughter(conceived in rape) were, “What are you going to tell her?”, “How are you going to tell her”, and “Are you going to tell her?” They told us it will be horrible thing to hear. Well, it is made infinitely more horrible to hear, when our culture and even many in the Church, look at these children as not worthy to live and as the spawn of Satan.

I was also asked, “Are you going to tell people? What will they think of her?” Oh please… I am bold in sharing ON PURPOSE because there is no shame in being rape conceived! She is an innocent human being. She images her Creator, the Author of Life. She isn’t a demon. She doesn’t have a 666 branded on her by the devil. She doesn’t have red eyes or horns under her curly hair. Funny how those who deny God suddenly believe the devil is real and he is out impregnating women through rape. How long will we continue to protect and defend hate speech against the rape conceived? When we tolerate it, we legitimize it.

It is time to stop DEMONIZING the rape conceived.

*What is “Hate Speech“? In law, hate speech is any speech, gesture or conduct, writing, or display which is forbidden because it may incite violence or prejudicial action against a protected individual or group. Hate speech consists of verbal and nonverbal expression that is used to demean, oppress, or promote violence against someone on the basis of their membership in a social or ethnic group. In many cases, hate speech is created by people who are part of a majority population. Their messages typically are directed toward people who are part of a minority population. The targets of hate speech are chosen just because they belong to that particular group of people. The messages of hate also are designed to degrade or otherwise harm these targets for the same reason. More on hate speech
