HOUSTON, —CHOICES4LIFE, founded February 2012 is devoted to bringing awareness to the rape conception issue and has formed a panel addressing the issues of rape pregnancy. This powerful team speaks personally on every aspect of this issue in a private or public forum. One woman speaks on regretting aborting her baby, another was pregnant by her father at twelve, another was conceived in incest, still another mother raised her child and Juda Myers, founder of CHOICES4LIFE was conceived in an eight man gang rape. No longer does society have to speculate what mothers and children of rape conception think or feel. They can hear it straight from the victims.
CHOICES4LIFE, also reaches out to mothers struggling with society’s stigma. Mothers who want their babies face rejection. CHOICES4LIFE offers emotional and financial support. Currently pregnant by rape a young woman expresses joy that this organization exists. Contemplating adoption and asked why she said, ‘Finances.’ CHOICES4LIFE is raising funds to give her a hand up so that she can find a job and raise her much loved baby boy - because no one should have to lose their child for lack of finances, especially in a temporary situation.
When threatened by her rapist, one woman was relocated to a safe place. Rent and food are some of the other ways CHOICES4LIFE has helped mothers. For rape conceived children struggling with value, Juda Myers offers logic as well as a higher purpose. “There’s no difference between a human conceived in rape and one conceived in love. We are all created in God’s image. You certainly can’t pick us out of a crowd. For 48 years I didn’t know I was rape conceived but when I found out it was devastating. I almost believed society. But I am no different than any other human.”
Myers, having spoken to hundreds of mothers pregnant by rape, knows these women love their babies. Their babies are now doctors, lawyers, teachers, pastors, musicians, chemists, and professors, just like any other child.
Myers, international speaker also hosts a blog talk radio show. She’s interviewed over 20 persons with powerful rape conception stories. Some spoke of being suicidal after aborting. Myers believes education will help both the victims and society.
