God can make anything beautiful come from such a painful ugly place! My heart goes out to everyone who has ever gone through such a horrific ordeal. I myself have been a rape victim..as well as molestation. It's not easy to deal with after the fact.. It effected every part of me and my life! Since I've given my life the LORD.. He has healed me. 

He has given me the grace to forgive the people who did what they did to me... I couldn't even talk about it before. It shouldn't of happened! That wasn't God's plan at all but we live in a sin/fallen world. Even those who commit this sin of raping are in need of a savior. We all need forgiveness. 

I'm no better than those who've sinned against me. That being said, we all make choices and choices have consequences. We all know sex can cause pregnancies. Just as well as you plant a seed in the ground and water it give it enough sun and it will grow. So when someone gets pregnant, it's the result of sex. Wanted or unwanted. GOD is merciful! He loves the sinner and the baby... CHRIST gave His Life for both! He can heal and bless that baby! That baby is no mistake to GOD! His Love covers multitudes of sin... That's why some folks get offended because His Love is Radical! Eternal! Unconditional! Amazing! 

Non of us deserve it yet He shed His innocent blood for all of us who deserved hell! As gruesome as this world is.... Nothing was more gruesome then the death of the only begotten Son of GOD! God loves you!

I would never say I had the ear of God to explain His reasons for allowing some of the insidious happenings that go on in this world. I do know that all good comes from God. I believe He allows some events to happen to teach or inform us of His character and majesty. The best way to accept the bad is to look for the good that God has done. A baby is a blessing at all times. If a person cannot raise the baby there are many couples who would love to have and raise that child who cannot have children of their own. 

As hard as it is, you must look for God's good reasoning in this and accept it. I know its hard. The act of rape is a horribly demeaning and injurious act. But I believe God did not allow that to happen just to be mean. God is not mean. God is love at all times and He sometimes punishes His believers because He loves them and wants to bring them back to Him.

I am not saying He uses rape to punish but He does allow it for some reason and if possible we must look for the good outcome. If we can do that it makes it easier to accept; not easy but easier.
