Given recent comment by Conservative representative Todd Akin, a Pro-Life Speaker, Rebecca Kiessling was interviewed on CNNs "Piers Morgan". Kiessling survived 2 abortions after her mother was violently raped.
Todd Akin is running in Missouri and made some controversial comments on August 19, 2012 concerning rape. He was asked by a interviewer from a St. Louis TV Station whether women who have been raped should be allowed to have an abortion.
Akin replied:

Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice the particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare, If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.
The Piers Morgan directly addressed this controvery by inviting Kiessling and Allred both conceived in rape. Kiessling is an attorney and was interviewed with Gloria Allred another attorney.
Kiessling noted, “Modern America doesn’t allow us to kill a rapist or even a child molester. The Supreme Court has said that they did not deserve the death penalty. And I don’t believe that I or any other child similarly situated deserve the death penalty for the crimes of our fathers.”
“You talk about how much you care about women. Well, what good is my right to anything as a woman if I don’t have my right to life?” asked Kiessling.
 “Rape victims are four times more likely to die within the next year after (they have had an) abortion, from suicide, murder, drug overdose, etc.” Kiessling in reference to the victimised women, said “I want to protect them from the rapist,” , “and from the abortion, not the baby. A baby is not the worst thing that could ever happen to a rape victim — an abortion is. We need to educate the American public on the truth in this matter and not make public policy based on myth and misinformation.”
