Format: Paperback
Kudos to the authors for exploring the topic of what happens to the "exceptions" (children born of rape). Rather than just giving statistics (you will note how usually, the pro-life or pro-choice movements merely make reference to us, as it furthers their own cause), the book gives real-life scenarios. Although the message is clearly that the children of these circumstances deserve life, it's nice to hear from some real people, rather than shadowy statistics. We do exist, and it's time people realize this!

This is THE book for those who believe abortion is the best option for a woman who is pregnant due to a rape or incest. These are the stories of the actually women and what they really want - not what abortion advocates proclaim they need. If you have any doubts, this book will clear them up for you. Proof that, once again, abortion is not the better choice, even in such difficult circumstances.

Victims and Victors is a survey of 129 women whose sexual assault resulted in pregnancy and children conceived by sexual assault. Some had abortions, some chose parenting, and some chose adoption. Nearly all who chose abortion regretted it, adding that it was worse than the rape itself. Not one of those who chose life regretted it; and not surprisingly, all of the assault-conceived children are grateful to their birthmothers and mothers for choosing life.

This is an absolutely amazing book that every single pro-lifer on earth should definitely read. In fact, if you are pro-life but believe in abortion in cases of rape and incest, you need to read this book. It contains the testimonies of women who became pregnant after rape or incest as well as the testimonies of grown children who were conceived that way. It was based on a study that was done by David Reardon and some other people which interviewed over 200 women who became pregnant after rape, and then either gave their children up for adoption, Them, or aborted. The statistics were really startling – a large percentage of those who aborted regretted it, over 90%. Yet out of those who gave their children up for adoption or kept them, not a single one regretted it. I never would've believe those statistics if I'd heard them, but the study was apparently very thorough in its interviews and while I think further study is needed before jumping to any conclusions, the overall messages that abortion, even after rape, doesn't help women. It doesn't help women heal from rape or incest. People really need to read this book if they are pro-life and have trouble defending the rape exception, or if they are pro-life but support the rape exception. Really, everyone should read this book.
