So, you pretty much believt that the child conceived by the act of rape should be punished more severely than the rapist?

I don't think that the woman should be punished more severely than the rapist: by being forced to carry a child, conceived in violence, who looks like her rapist.

If the child were conceived by a man who later, say, beat the mother, or robbed her, or stole her car, should she then be permitted to kill the baby?

Why do you assume that a woman who is raped automatically wants to have an abortion?

Thats a tough one. On the surface I would tend to agree with you. Even though she could have the baby adopted and never see the child, it would still be an agony to go through a pregnancy like that. I just have a problem though with saying "its ok to kill a baby if it makes it easier on the mother". In effect, that is what most abortions are, a convenience, no matter the circumstances so that makes this exception not really an exception at all.
