Women who are victims of pregnancy as a result of a rape are traumatized as it is. Not being able to have an abortion as a result of rape would mean that many women might have to raise a child who was conceived by a very damaging action. This would also keep her in anguish for 9 months to be constantly reminded of the violent act committed against her. The child may also be raised without the proper love and affection and would be subject to mental instability. Also, there is always the possibility of the child having tested positive for Downs. A parent may not have the resources or means to give the child proper care in life. They should have the right to terminate as the child would be better off not being born that to live a life of suffering and serious problems.
