for a woman who has been raped a resulting child could be a source of comfort (the only good thing to come out of a terrible incident) or the complete opposite and so the choice should lie with the victim as to whether she should carry to term or not. why do we (PL and PC, or even society as a whole) seem to insist that if a woman becomes pregnant as a result of rape she must want an abortion, i can see the logic behind why she wouldn't want the child but there is also logic in the argument that she might want to carry the child to term and then either keep him/her or put him/her up for adoption.
