“…the little girl born into those tough circumstances was elected her university’s homecoming queen after running on a platform entirely devoted to adoption advocacy.”

Dutton’s story is a shocking tale of a “victim of a sexual assault that resulted in her becoming pregnant. She was given an ultimatum by her husband: either abort the baby, or face divorce” as Dutton’s mother could have easily aborted her.

Lifeline Children’s Services, a Birmingham-based Christian adoption agency, is credited with helping her biological mother in California and her courageous decision to keep the baby and put her up for adoption instead of aborting.

“Because that resource was made available to my mother, she decided to give birth to me,” Dutton said. “And here I am talking to you guys 22 years later.”

“Light Up LIFE” was Dutton’s slogan, the perfect summation of her campaign’s goal to spread the word that adoption can bring light into a dark situation.

It took Auburn’s campus by storm.

    While one can admire this young woman’s obviously fine qualities, I see nothing at all to admire in the decision by her mother to bear the child of a rapist. This young woman bears in her genes those of a vicious criminal and she will pass them on some day. Women who have been raped should be given immediate treatment to ensure a “pregnancy does not result” from the rape. I am opposed to abortion in most cases but it is absolutely justified in cases of rape. Further, rape should carry the death penalty. You look at her face and see the animal who raped her mother. We should never have to see that. There are enough such faces running around loose as it is.

      Either this story is close to home for you or you are just blind. Any child of rape has a right to live just as much as you and I. You are not what your genes say you are. You are what you choose to be. We have all been given a will. What we choose to do with our life, is up to us. Genes have nothing to do with it!! This young woman will continue to shine and shine. She is an inspiration and her mother did the RIGHT thing. Unless you have been in this mother’s shoes, you have no right to voice such an opinion. So keep such dumb remarks to yourself.
