The problem I have with anti-abortion advocates is that the only life thy care to protect is that of the unborn. The person they want to carry an
unwanted pregnancy full term they couldn't care less about, that person's life means nothing to them and I have to say it really ticks me off.
And this is why.
My daughter now 22, on the last day of her freshman year in HS at age 15 an upperclassman used threats to harm ME to force her against her will, It
took until she was 17 to tell me. I felt like I was watching her die over those years I didn't know what to do or what happened, she suppressed it,
got physically ill, we had every test run under the sun on her, she'd go pale and pass out and then she started having panic attacks and we, got her
into a psych and he knew something happened but she just said nothing, then she developed agoraphobia had to finish HS online . It destroyed all of
her high school years, no socialization to speak of etc.
And you know up until that day I always knew exactly where she was and when and would have been looking for her if she was more than 5 minutes
But it was the last day of her freshman year, we lived so close to the school I could ear the kids laughing from my porch and could walk less 1/2 a
block to see the kids in front of the school. I kept looking and seeing kids there laughing and didn't wan to be OVER PROTECTIVE, I thought she was
hanging out in front of the school with her friends before the summer started and they didn't see as much of each other..
And he was so much bigger than her and she was so scared that he would actually come and hurt me like he threatened while she was at her father's for
the summer and I was alone, everything we talked about went out the window in her panic.
She luckily did not get pregnant from the attack, the experience itself was so totally destructive to her that, I know that she just would not have
survived it, it would have been too much for her to handle.
She only reached the point of finally starting to gain some semblance of a normal life last year...such as being able to leave the house without her
father or myself with her, she couldn't even walk out the door without one of us.
Had she become pregnant as a result of what happened to her, the anti-abortion advocates would have forced her into a situation where in all
likelihood she would take her life, people have no IDEA what she went though. But they would rather her be pushed beyond the bounds of what she could
live through, to preserve a life forced on her and in the end both would have been lost. And I don't say that lightly, she had to be hospitalized at
one point. And all they would care about was the unborn life, they couldn't care less what having to carry the result of a rape that so devastated
her would do to her life.
The world is a beautiful place with her in it.
