 Please remember that this stamp is just a simple fact about the actions that lead to abortion. Everyone is free to have your own personal opinion.


At only 1% of all abortions, rape is not the reason abortion is legal.

There is a common myth that says "abortion is legal because rape exists." Rape and incest (combined) contribute fewer than 1% of all abortions performed yearly. (The actual survey statistic is 0.3%, but as rape is sometimes unreported, it's safer to raise the number.) Only around 5% of all abortions are done to save the mother's life. That means that 99% of abortions are done after consensual sex, and 93% - 94% are done for convenience alone. Also, only around 51% - 52% of all women who obtain abortions report using birth control during the month leading up to pregnancy.

On top of that, the balance of women impregnated by rape and/or incest choose not to abort. Over half of women who become pregnant due to rape or incest carry to term. (S. Makhorn, in Psychological Aspects of Abortion, Mall & Watts, Univ. Pub. 1979, Pg. 58) Of those women who have aborted after rape, more than 90 percent said they would discourage other victims of sexual violence from having an abortion. On the other hand, among the women who conceived due to rape or incest and carried to term, not one expressed regret about her choice. Clearly, abortion is not legal because rape exists.

The number of abortions after rape and incest is fewer than 1% of all abortions.





EDIT: I have been accused by the group Intersectional-911 that this message is hateful and discriminatory towards women and that it promotes rape and rape culture. I was even banned from that group because I submitted this and later blocked by its moderator when I tried to explain how this is simply a fact, nothing more. Just to clear any doubts, I want everyone to know that I hate rape in all its forms. I do not stand for rape. Rape has no excuse. A simple fact such as this is not meant to be demeaning or belittling towards anyone nor is this stamp an attempt to say that rape victims are in any way insignificant. I simply wish to dispel the commonly-held myth that abortion is legal because rape exists.

You're basically defending you're own beliefs because with abortion you can CHOOSE or CHOOSE NOT to get one, because let's be honest here, this is just another lengthy pro-life argument. Also, you get raped, get pregnant, and don't wanna have a kid, you should have that choice to get an abortion right? So what if the number's are small, it's still a goddamn choice. I mean come on folks, this is America. DO YOU OR DO YOU NOT WANT THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE?

Abortion was legalized because there were too many children being born into families could not afford them, and put into adoption homes in so large a number that they could not be adopted at the rate they were being put in. Abortion was legalized so low income families wouldn't spend years using money they didn't have long-term for something they couldn't handle long-term.

In other words, crime and population control.

After abortion was legalized, in the next twenty years, crime rates when down drastically. Kids who were aborted or sent to crowded, underfunded adoption homes were never born and didn't have to resort to crime later in life to get by. Those same parents or foster parents who might have had to resort to crime to support their children ultimately had no need to when they could abort. In twenty years, the number of thefts, arson, rape, human-trafficking, drug-trafficking, and murder went down, because those children who would have grown up to be criminals with no other way to get by were never born.

Also, if you personally have a problem with abortion, then don't abort. It's that simple a logic. If you have a problem with racism, don't be racist. If you have a problem with gays, don't be gay. If you have a problem with anything, don't be that thing. I find it infuriating how people try to infringe on other's rights because of a personal opinion. In the face of an abortion, if my partner and I had the power to giveth, then we have the power to taketh away. End of story.

That being said, I'd personally never have an abortion unless absolutely necessary, but I don't care that other people do. They had the power to maketh that baby, thus they have the power to taketh away. It's not up to me at that point. It's up to them.

"Would you support forced abortions and sterilizations as a form of population control?"
Who said anything about forced abortions EVER in my statement? Your response was completely irrational for the topic at hand, and it looks to me you couldn't handle what's being said. Nobody forced people with low incomes to have abortions, they chose to because they couldn't afford them. It costs $3,500 dollars to deliver a baby in maternity wards ( www.parents.com/pregnancy/cons… ) when it can take less than $100 at some places to have an abortion. For someone who makes $8-$10 an hour, an abortion is much more affordable than birthing them and then setting them up for adoption, where they might never be adopted anyways. Nobody forced them, and no one is ever going to force them. This out-of-the-blue statement was flawed from the start.

"What if everyone decided they didn't want abortions anymore?"
That's never going to happen when there are still that 1% who are raped and don't want to bear the child of their rapist, or for those some-percent who have a fetus with a defect that might end up killing the mother upon birth, or those people who simply want the free choice in a free country.

Abortions should stay legal, not because I personally want it, but because there are people who, in the end, DO need it. Because, legal or not, people are gonna do it, whether it's rape -Which, by the way, 1% of the American population who have abortions for rape is still in the 5,300 range, ( www.numberofabortions.com/ ) which is still a LOT of people
-, medical reasons, or because they cannot afford it. And by God, I'd rather the people who DO need it for rape or medical scenarios have a safe, sterile environment in which they can, and not have to do it at home with a coat hanger.

Okay, certainly an interesting fact and something worth keeping in mind.
I myself am neutral to abortion stuff in general, just trying not to think about it. If I had to pick a side I suppose it would be pro-choice because 1% (or 0.3%, whatever) is still bigger than 0%, the other reasons it would be necessary, those that want it could get it by other means (I hesitate to bring it up because of chuckleheads using that for stuff like saying horrid drugs should be legalized because people could get them illegally but for stuff like abortion and suicide it holds pretty well, can elaborate more if needed) and the real clincher is that someone who'd be willing to kill their fetus to be rid of their pregnancy (for WHATEVER reason) could not be relied on to actually care for their child. If they were willing to have it killed in order to not deal with it, what the hell else could they do to it?! Not to mention that they wouldn't necessarily be reliable for all the responsibilities the pregnancy itself brings.

What I need to argue against is some of the stuff you brought up in the comments:
1) Forcing those whose birth control failed or who were raped to carry their baby. For the first, even if birth control isn't 100% perfect if they used it that was an explicit decision to not get pregnant and taking action to make it so, they shouldn't be forced to "deal with it" because random chance failed them, it wasn't their decision for it to fail. And I trust I don't need to explain how despicable it is to force rape victims to carry babies they don't want...
1a) Also, your birth control finickiness makes no bloody sense either. It really ISN'T any different, both have a child who would've otherwise come into being will not come into being. What means cause it are simply a meaningless technicality for these purposes. The fact that you split hairs as to morning-after pills not being okay but ones that prevent cycling are shows this... As does the fact that you aren't getting mad at people for not constantly fucking, because that's also "killing" potential kids! They can't be born if you don't knock people up! Makes about as much sense as dismissing failed contraceptives...
2) You really DO need to show your sources when they're asked for. YOU'RE making the claim, YOU need to back it up. Simple as that.
3) The "playing god" nonsense is just that, nonsense. You're just as much deciding who should live and die by saying they should live.
4) Don't hide behind that "right to opinions" bunk, this is a serious issue! In your own words, it's about life and death. This isn't people arguing about the best pizza topping or the coolest color, this is fucking serious! The wrong view on this can do serious harm, if someone's wrong about this then they need to change, "opinions" and "beliefs" be damned!

That is all for now, really did need to say that. Normally I don't get involved in this but some of these arguments really got me steamed up.

You're assuming the mother has to raise the child. She doesn't. There are actually more than enough families who would want to adopt it if it was merely given a chance. On top of that, newborns get top priority when it comes to adoption agency. The chances of a newborn going un-adopted are extremely slim. Most of the children who "age out" of the system were put in because of abusive/neglectful parents/guardians or because their parents/guardians died, and therefore have nothing to do with abortion.






Forcing those whose birth control failed or who were raped to carry their baby. For the first, even if birth control isn't 100% perfect if they used it that was an explicit decision to not get pregnant and taking action to make it so, they shouldn't be forced to "deal with it" because random chance failed them, it wasn't their decision for it to fail.

 And I trust I don't need to explain how despicable it is to force rape victims to carry babies they don't want...

I don't have to force them to. The balance of women impregnated by rape and/or incest choose not to abort. Over half of women who become pregnant due to rape or incest carry to term. (S. Makhorn, in Psychological Aspects of Abortion, Mall & Watts, Univ. Pub. 1979, Pg. 58) Of those women who have aborted after rape, more than 90 percent said they would discourage other victims of sexual violence from having an abortion. On the other hand, among the women who conceived due to rape or incest and carried to term, not a single one expressed regret about her choice.

The chance of pregnancy of rape is only 1 out of 1,000 (see links in the description). Most rapists are serial rapists with an average of 8 victims each. If the law functioned as it should, rape would be slashed to an eighth of what it is now (rapists would only be able to claim 1 victim each before they were prevented from ever repeating their crime. Pregnancy from rape could very well disappear completely. The answer to the "forcing rape victims to carry their babies" predicament is clearly not abortion, but rather stopping the problem at its source: weak punishments for rape. The punishment for rape is technically around 8 years in prison, after which the rapist is free to leave and rape again. However, the vast majority of judges do not sentence rapists to more than a few months in jail, and the majority of rapists who are jailed can bail themselves out within a day, thus most rapists never spend a day in jail. On top of that, only 18 out of the 50 U.S. states prevent a rapist from legally taking custody of a child that he fathered through rape. In the remaining 32 states, rapists can rape women as many times as they like, bail themselves out each time, and claim custody of their children. There is incentive for rape victims to abort so as not to let their rapist get their baby. Do you want this to continue? Do you want these women to be trapped between a rock and a hard place? Instead of fussing about the symptom, cure the illness. Don't give pain killers to a person with a stroke and send them on their way; mend the artery. Rapists must be dealt with before we will see any reduction in women impregnated against their will.







 Also, your birth control finickiness makes no bloody sense either. It really ISN'T any different, both have a child who would've otherwise come into being will not come into being. What means cause it are simply a meaningless technicality for these purposes. The fact that you split hairs as to morning-after pills not being okay but ones that prevent cycling are shows this... As does the fact that you aren't getting mad at people for not constantly fucking, because that's also "killing" potential kids! They can't be born if you don't knock people up! Makes about as much sense as dismissing failed contraceptives...

A woman doesn't become pregnant until the sperm reaches the egg, and in that instant, a new life form is made: a zygote. Some forms of birth control prevent the sperm from reaching the egg, and others allow a zygote to form and then kill it. Some kill zygotes, some don't. End of story.







You really DO need to show your sources when they're asked for. YOU'RE making the claim, YOU need to back it up. Simple as that.

I did show my sources. You clearly have not read the description.






The "playing god" nonsense is just that, nonsense. You're just as much deciding who should live and die by saying they should live.

No. I'm not deciding who should live and who should die. I'm giving everyone a chance to live.






Don't hide behind that "right to opinions" bunk, this is a serious issue! In your own words, it's about life and death. This isn't people arguing about the best pizza topping or the coolest color, this is fucking serious! The wrong view on this can do serious harm, if someone's wrong about this then they need to change, "opinions" and "beliefs" be damned!

I don't know what you're talking about with this "opinions" comment. If you're referring to me respecting people who have different ideas than I do even though I disagree with them, well, you could learn a lot of that.

You're getting extremely emotional here. Cursing, swearing, other forms of foul language, name-calling, and shouting are all signs that a person in a debate has nothing useful left to say.

You're right that this is a serious issue. Innocent children are dying because people value sensations in their genitals higher than their lives.







That is all for now, really did need to say that. Normally I don't get involved in this but some of these arguments really got me steamed up.

Yeah, I can tell. You just displayed every single signal that you have nothing useful left to say, not to mention that you didn't even bother to read the description. And if you did read the description, some of your comments show that you're clearly grasping at straws in an attempt to pick a fight.

Okay, just need to say this: The block really ticked me off. I didn't mean to insult or anything, but I had read that and made a really long response, finding out I was blocked just as I pressed "reply" was a real slap in the face and really just came across as trying to silence dissent. I can under this was very harsh, but this is a serious topic, it will get that sort of reaction, just as it did with previous comments.
I will address a few points though:
The reason I made my comment without really addressing the description is because I had no issue with that stuff, the stuff in the comments was going in a different direction and that's the stuff I took issue with.
With regard to the "playing god" thing, you really did make a decision as to who should live (in your case, everyone) and who should die (in your case, noone). That's not a problem though! It's impossible to discuss something like this without making a decision like that. Yes, it's very unpleasant but these are unpleasant topics. If you're really adverse to those sort of decisions, then that doesn't leave you any real way to discuss something like this. But if you try your best to make the most informed "guess" you can, that's all anyone can really ask so it's fine! It could be a mistake, but that's just being human.
Finally, the rape punishment discussion seemed off the point. Just because one suggest allowances for the victim of a crime doesn't mean they don't care about punishing it more. Preventing a crime, punishing the crime and caring for the victim afterwards are all separate things, even if they overlap sometimes.

Maybe it's immature but I really wanted to let that out before this stopped. If you change your mind, I still have my reply ready to revise and post. If not, this can be the last post here.
Just don't block me again, in all debates and discussions -however heated they may get- it's important to let your opponent defend themself and their points, blocking doesn't accomplish anything worthwhile.

Okay, I understand. That's why I unblocked you. The reason I did block you was to stop what appeared to be someone who wanted a fight. You implied that I shouldn't respect anyone's opinions and you demanded that I spoon-feed you sources that I'd already provided. To me, that looked for all the world like you just wanted a fight and I had no interest in that kind of attitude. That's why I ended the discussion. Maybe it's not what you meant, but that's what it looked like. However, I unblocked you on the chance that you were just having an off day and you needed some time to cool down.

I will not block you if you remain calm and mature. I do have the right to block, however, if you start harassing me, picking fights, or acting out of willful ignorance. I originally blocked you because you appeared to be doing all those things.




With regard to the "playing god" thing, you really did make a decision as to who should live (in your case, everyone) and who should die (in your case, noone). That's not a problem though! It's impossible to discuss something like this without making a decision like that.

This really looks like you're splitting hairs here, sorry. One requires action, the other does not. In the case of abortion, the mother must  forcibly terminate her pregnancy by killing her fetus, whereas if she did nothing, the pregnancy would continue as normal.




But if you try your best to make the most informed "guess" you can, that's all anyone can really ask so it's fine! It could be a mistake, but that's just being human.

I'm not sure what your point here is. Being pro-life is the most informed "guess" I have. I find it much safer and much more logical to err on the side of life. If it's not a person and you killed it, oh well, it's undeniably a person now, but if it is a person and you killed it, you just killed an innocent human being. The stakes are just too high to risk, in my opinion.




Just because one suggest allowances for the victim of a crime doesn't mean they don't care about punishing it more. Preventing a crime, punishing the crime and caring for the victim afterwards are all separate things, even if they overlap sometimes.

Actually, fighting to keep abortion legal while at the same time ignoring how the government practically encourages rape does indeed create a problem. Instead of pruning the branches, focus your efforts on killing the roots.

Birth control can be a little pricey if you want the reliable kinds, but you're right, it's far more affordable than an abortion. A lot of people don't like birth control, though, because hormonal ones can do real damage emotionally and the like, and condoms, well, you get the idea. On top of that, people don't think clearly when the hormones get pumping, so chances are they won't even think to use birth control at all.
Exactly. People just want to have their cake and eat it, too.

I know, right? Some people are just so bigoted against pro-lifers.

Stating facts now promotes violent crime and hate...what has this world come to? I swear, some people do more than just choose to remain ignorant, they want to demonize everything that could possibly inspire a differing view. Sorry that happened to you.

What the heck? Of course I'm demonizing rape. Do you support rape?
