Here is an example of this meme from Tara Sloan:
Although it is a tough issue, I am even anti-abortion in the case of rape. Great people like Jesse Jackson and James Robison were both products of rape. They are examples of how God will restore.
The core problem is this justification boils down to, "Great people were the product of rape so that's why I'm anti-abortion even in cases of rape."
The problem with this meme is that if this justification is truly valid it justifies not only making it illegal for those who are pregnant through rape to get abortions, it justifies making it illegal for rape victims to get emergency contraception. It also justifies ignoring rapists altogether since their actions produce great people.
If great people are produced then nothing else matters.
This meme also makes rape and any subsequent pregnancy something which comes directly from God. That's a very dangerous message to send to rapists who while being anti-abortion can have no respect for human life.
If you believe that it is wrong to have an abortion, don't have one yourself.
