More and more anti-choice legislators are fighting against rape exceptions in abortion restrictions out of the supposed concern that women will fake being raped to use them.
I was raped during my freshman year of college. To add to the burden, I got pregnant.
The real question that needs to be addressed is not whether rape can cause pregnancy. The question is: will measures that ban women who have been impregnated by rape from having abortions be enacted, enabling rapists, with state support, even greater power to deprive women of their dignity and personhood?
