Rape victims are not pro-abortion


David C. Reardon is Director of the Elliot Institute for Social Sciences Research and author of Aborted Women: Silent No More (1987). He has carried out extensive study on the abortion experience for women who are victims of rape. A defence of the unborn may appear to be placing more value on the sanctity of life than on the needs of the assault victim.

However the fact is that the welfare of the mother and child are never at odds, even in sexual assault cases. Both the mother and child are helped by preserving life, not be perpetuating violence.
