Rape Victim's Decision to Choose Life Makes Her the Target of Abortion Activists

Jennifer Christie used her traumatic experience to spread a powerful message about choosing life but has recently found herself the victim of numerous attacks by abortion activists.

After being raped while on a business trip in 2014, she soon learned that she was pregnant and gave birth to a son nine months later. Despite the distressing situation she faced, Christie made the decision to appear in a pro-life video and speak for rape victims who become pregnant and make the choice to keep their babies.

The Christian Institute reports that since she appeared in the pro-life video, Christie has become the target of abortion activists who have put numerous shocking tactics in play. These activists have shared horrific videos showing the rape and mutilation of women, while a separate video depicting strobe lighting was sent to Christie in an effort to provoke her photosensitive epilepsy.

Love is stronger

The video Christie appeared in for ‘Save the 1’, attempts to represent those who were conceived through rape as well as mothers who have children that are born as the result of sexual assault. The video, which only spans three minutes, has been viewed over 1.4 million times. 

In her message, Christie emphasized that her son was “a reminder that love is always stronger than hate.” She mentioned that while several people pushed her to get an abortion, women in the same position as she was in need “hope and help”, instead of “violence on top of violence”. 

Christie urged abortionists to refrain from using her rape “as a banner to hide behind and excuse the genocide of the innocent.”

New purposes

Jennifer’s husband, Jeff, also made his beliefs regarding the holiness of human life known. 

Jeff stated that babies conceived in rape are not ‘terrible reminders’. “They are opportunities for healing and a way to find meaning from nightmarish meaningless actions.”

“I also recognized that our son had nothing to do with the horror she went through,” he noted. 

He reminds other female rape victims that abortion does not need to be the answer, saying that “there are always options. ALWAYS people to help”.

In regards to abortionists who want to refuse men the chance to express their pro-life views, Jeff firmly declares: “Don’t tell me I can’t argue for life in the womb. I will.”

‘Repulsive’

Jonathon van Maren, commenting for Life Site News, noted that: “Someone furious that Jennifer was defending her son’s right to exist and condemning abortion as the killing of pre-born children wanted to make her suffer for her stand in the most repulsive way.”

“It is awful to think that young women defending the weak and the vulnerable and standing up for their own children would be subjected to sexualised attacks.”
