Someone else or no one or the child could never have been in that situation then and there.. In short, you cannot be sure what would have happened if you had not been born. No one can be sure of what would have happened if they were not born. For all you know, tomorrow you could be driving a car and smash into a school bus and kill more than 15 children. Does that mean you'd then wish you had been aborted? The point is you cannot know the future and you cannot say that those 15 or more people you apparently saved would not been saved if you had not been born. You cannot know what would have happened and for all you know, they may not have been in that dangerous situation or suicidal in the first place. For all you know, the man you call your "father", the rapist, could have been killed in a car accident before he raped your poor "birth mother". Do you know what struck me the most about your post? My father was a person who raped around five women or more and he was in consequence deported to Ecuador after he was caught. The man who impregnated your poor "mother" was a rapist who had raped 5 women or more. Yet you call him your "father" and the woman who chose to not have an abortion after she fell pregnant from her rape your "birth mother". I just find it an interesting distinction and choice of words. How is your mother's choice irrelevant? She probably had the choice and she chose to keep you and then give you up for abortion. But that does not mean that other women who are in her predicament should be forced into that choice by society.
