This will be brief. There's been lots of talk recently about abortion rights lately, especially as it pertains to rape victims. My contribution to this discussion isn't anything new, but I still need to make my case. Unfortunately, much of the talk (admittedly, only what I've personally been exposed to through various media) has been dominated by men who cannot truly understand the real-life, non-hypothetical experience of carrying a child conceived through forced, unwanted intercourse. I am a man and can at least appreciate that I don't and can't understand.
That being said, I, in my own ignorance, can't see myself keeping that child. Perhaps you would agree with me on this, perhaps not. Either way, man or woman, would you rather make that decision yourself, or would you rather pick someone else - whom you likely do not know personally - who will tell you what you can and cannot do with your body/fetus/embryo/egg?
