|I don't believe in abortion for rape or incest survivors. Oh, and I have been a victim of rape so I am qualified to answer thhat question.
Yes, you are qualified to make decisions about your own life. You know best how to handle that experience. But that doesn't mean you automatically know what's best for every rape victim. The experience is different for each woman.
About birth control, it doesn't bother me what anyone else uses. I would never use the IUD because of the implantation issue, but also because the idea of it just scares me! A metal device just hanging around in there?!
I keep hearing different things about the Pill. I can only use the minipill, and with all the different things I hear it sounds like it could potentially prevent implantation of a fertilized egg, but that it would be really rare because an egg most likely would not be released. Not an issue though, because dh is getting a vas after this baby is born and I never have to use bc again!
I would use emergency contraception if I were raped. But no, not all hospitals will give it out. If it didn't "take," I don't know what I would do. I'd like to say I'd have the baby and give it up, assuming I were still married, but I honestly don't know. This one time when I went on this camping trip and got molested in my sleep (this guy thought I was sleeping) I felt sick for weeks and threw out my pajamas. I can't imagine keeping a child when I couldn't stand to be around my clothing. I believe a baby should not be punished for what it's "father" did, but I can't say I know what I'd do.
When I started volunteering at the rape crisis center they asked me if I would be able to work with clients wanting to terminate a pregnancy. I said I would help them find a clinic, but that I could not take them there.
