Think this woman should be dead? Amnesty International does

Gatto-633x372
Valerie Gatto, Former Miss Pennsylvanie

Rebecca is regularly told she should’ve been aborted. Those feelings aren’t unusual; when Valerie Gatto discussed being “a child of rape,” the former Miss Pennsylvania USA was dubbed “the spawn of a criminal.”

When it comes to the death penalty, Amnesty International doesn’t mince words: capital punishment is “the ultimate denial of human rights.” Regardless of your crime, you shouldn’t be executed for it. How about executing someone for her father’s crime? Oh yeah, Amnesty’s fine with that.

Northern Ireland bans abortion in most circumstances, a fact Amnesty International wants to change. They’re especially upset about how the law protects children conceived in rape, calling it “a betrayal of women and girls.”

Rebecca Kiessling

Not all women agree, of course. Northern Ireland’s first female leader doesn’t. Neither does American activist Rebecca Kiessling, which isn’t surprising. After all, a similar law saved her life.

Rebecca Kiessling’s biological father was a rapist. While her mother wanted an abortion, it was illegal at the time. Rebecca was put up for adoption instead, going on to become an attorney and an adoptive mother herself. That the law protected her is something she’s grateful for. To Amnesty International, it was “shameful.” They aren’t the only ones who think so.Valerie Gatto

Rebecca is regularly told she should’ve been aborted. Those feelings aren’t unusual; when Valerie Gatto discussed being “a child of rape,” the former Miss Pennsylvania USA was dubbed “the spawn of a criminal.”

Rape survivor Jennifer Christie has seen her son labeled as a “rapist’s DNA deposit” and something “from Satan.” She’s been attacked as well, with online commenters calling her “stupid,” “brain damaged,” “f–ked in the head” and “an a–hole” for not killing him. One woman’s email was particularly blunt: “I want to hurt you.”


Jennifer Christie and Son

None of these people got to choose how they were conceived, so their response is a little puzzling; had circumstances been different, they’d be the ones receiving hate instead of hurling it. Unlike some of the folks Amnesty International tries to protect, “rape babies” didn’t decide to harm others. The organization definitely wants to harm them, however.
