Con

31 states deny a rape victim's right to choose adoption or parenting without the consent of the rapist. This revictimizes rape victims and when I had my pregnancy scare by my rapist, I felt so violated even though I used emergency contraception. Should prolife victims like me be forced into an unwanted abortion?

I accept but what am I pro for?

Con

My position is that rape victims have the moral and should have the legally protected right to choose adoption without their rapist's consent, because I was raped, and if Plan B, failed, I would have wanted to choose adoption. This would have been my right as a rape victim/survivor.
