Reader’s Comment of the Day: Don’t rush to judgement over abortion


Laura Perrins: A child conceived through rape is no less worthy of love, Jethro wrote:

Some while ago, now, I came across something that went like this: ‘A single mother has syphilis, is pregnant, already has seven children, one of whom is blind, another mentally deficient… would you recommend an abortion? To the ‘yes’ answer, the response was, ‘Congratulations: you have just deprived the world of Beethoven.’
When discussing the ethics of abortion with sixth-form girls, always the ‘but what about when she was raped…?’ question arose, which I suppose I might now counter with other ‘what-abouts’: before the definition of ‘Marital Rape’, how many wives conceived unconsentingly? If it’s a question of the rapist’s genes, wouldn’t diluting those genes be potentially beneficial? 

And what about women who fall helplessly in love with the most unsuitable men – condemned serial-murderers and sadists? Shouldn’t any resulting children be aborted – more or less automatically, in the eugenic interests of the Race?
It has been said, ‘There is only one beautiful baby in the world – and every mother has it.’ Why not even a child conceived in rape? Or consider how a woman may be said to love a miscarried child, grieving for it, and remembering its might-have-been anniversaries…
“Out of the strong came forth sweetness, out of the eater came forth meat.”
