I can not fathom someone being forced to carry a child conceived through rape! It's easy for the high and mighty to say that all she has to do is give that child up for adoption, but for her to be forced to carry it through to delivery? I know it's an innocent life, but until you walk in that person's shoes, no one should ever try to force their beliefs on others. I did know a girl who gave birth to a child conceived through rape and decided to keep it. She was always battling her feelings towards that child.
I have a friend who suffered through a horrific gang rape nearly twenty years ago. There were three perpetrators but one in particular served as the ringleader and principal conspirator. He was in his early thirties when he planned the crime and convinced a twenty-one year old and a nineteen year old to join him. His victim was only sixteen years old.

After raping a girl only half his age, the principal rapist let the others have their turn. Then he raped her again. In between his two assaults upon her he slapped her around viciously and poured alcohol...
