I am the 1 percent used to justify 100 percent of abortions

Family First Comment: There are others like me who were conceived in the violence of rape, like my friend Rebecca Kiessling, an attorney and passionate defender of life. There’s the former Miss Pennsylvania, Valerie GattoTrayvon CliftonMonica KelseyJim SablePam Stenzel, and many more whose stories offer a different perspective than mainstream media’s myopic pro-abortion view. There are women who became mothers from rape who courageously chose life, like Jennifer ChristieLiz Carl, and Rebekah BergI mean, who really are the extremists here? Those who think that every human being has the right to life? Or people who celebrate the needless slaughter of one million innocent humans each year in America?… When it comes to rape and abortion, how do you heal violence with more violence?

There’s the horrific tragedy of rape, which the Left is relentlessly exploiting. Never mind they ignore it when Planned Parenthood fails to report the rape of underage victims. Those rape situations don’t bother them. No. Only when they realize how potent it is to use the 1% to justify 100% of abortions. 

I am that 1 percent. 

My biological mother was raped, yet she rejected the violence of abortion. I was adopted and loved instead. I’m not the “residue of the rapist”, as Senator Vivian Davis Figures described those like me who were conceived in rape; I’m the resilience of my birthmom. And the only father that I’ve ever known is Henry Bomberger—a man who could’ve lived a “normal” life. Instead, he chose to live an extraordinary one as he stepped up to love those that other men abandoned. I couldn’t control the circumstances of my conception. Could you, Senator? 

My birthmom needed an active Healer in her life, not an activist huckster.

As an adoptee who grew up wanted and loved in a multiracial family of fifteen and as a happily married adoptive father with four children, I’m here to say there’s another side of this painful issue. There are others like me who were conceived in the violence of rape, like my friend Rebecca Kiessling, an attorney and passionate defender of life. There’s the former Miss Pennsylvania, Valerie GattoTrayvon CliftonMonica KelseyJim SablePam Stenzel, and many more whose stories offer a different perspective than mainstream media’s myopic pro-abortion view. There are women who became mothers from rape who courageously chose life, like Jennifer ChristieLiz Carl, and Rebekah Berg. 

I mean, who really are the extremists here? Those who think that every human being has the right to life? Or people who celebrate the needless slaughter of one million innocent humans each year in America? People who boast about having their abortions like Gloria Steinem sporting an “I had an abortion” shirt? People like fake feminist Jill Filipovic who suggest severing part of a man’s penis every time he impregnates someone. People like Cecile Richards who compare protesting abortion to protesting a colonoscopy, because an unborn child is no different than feces?

When it comes to rape and abortion, how do you heal violence with more violence?

I am the one percent that is always demonized and exploited. But I’m part of a far larger collective of courageous and compassionate advocates for Life who believe in the radical notion that we all have equal and irrevocable worth regardless of how our lives began.

    I have often wondered how children who are born of rape feel about life. It is as I suspected . Some (most?) are glad to be alive. I suspect that there will be others though, who no doubt blame all their ills on the manner of their conception. I recall as a child coming out with the response when in trouble “I did not ask to be born”. I have heard the same response, and I probably learned it, from others. When I got past the particular event which was troubling me , I was once more glad to have been born and able to enjoy the good things of life.
    There is no perfect solution in an imperfect world, but any debate of the subject should always include a balanced representation, including those conceived through rape.I sometimes think that those who commit violent and deliberate deliberate rape should be castrated. It sounds frightening but it would be a merciful solution. As a Christian though, I know that forgiveness and repentance can be life changing . The power of God is transformative for all who avail themselves of God’s forgiveness -offenders and victims. Literally life-changing. Knowing God, I give thanks for life and regardless of the circumstances of my birth it is unthinkable that I should never have been born. He knew me even before then.This I came to learn later as it is for us all. How can we make right decisions when we do not know the full story?
