A child, wanting to live life. Innocent, free,ready to dream. Then tragedy happens.
It can happen in an instant, at any age. To anyone- man or women, girl or boy. Even babies! We can't protect ourselves against the sin of another.Rapists are everywhere.
What if you didn't know what sex was?What if someone invaded your space?What if your family abandoned you due to shame?Fear?Or theywere just plainly abusivepeople.
Would you keep a babyfathered through rape? Most people wouldn't!
She was 16, innocent,when a man climbed into her bedroom and raped her. Her parents kept her locked away for 9 months. She no doubt was scared, her parentsand brothers ashamed of the baby. They kicked herandbeat her. Eventually, shelay bleeding on the door step, giving birth.
She had made a choice to keep the baby. She had carried her for 9months and suffered in the long term. She named the baby Sonia.They were taken awayand placed in a home, butthesevere trauma developedinto mental illness, and there was no way they could be kept together.
Most people would see all the negatives and say "abort"!
"What chance has that baby got?"
"Why would you even consider givinglife to a baby who was fathered by a rapist."
"What if the child turnsout the same?"
"End it's life to save both parties the pain, shame, abuse and suffering."
