Dr. Jim Hamilton offers what I think to be a very effective way to respond to the question on whether we should abortion in the case of rape:
I had no control over the circumstances of how I was conceived, but I’m glad to be alive, grateful for the opportunity to live in this world. Since I’m glad to be alive myself, I want other people to have the chance to live, too. So for me, this is a question of the golden rule.
The kids conceived in those circumstances had no more control over how they were conceived than you or me, and I don’t think they deserve the death penalty for those circumstances.
