Trigger Warning Pregnancy and Sexual Assault

I found out earlier this week that I am pregnant. By my calculation, I am about ten weeks along as I was raped exactly 10 weeks ago and I only have consenting sex with my female partner. I found out I was pregnant at a sexual assault follow up appointment where they routinely do a pregnancy test. The nurse who informed me gave me only information on abortion and made it clear that it would be a huge mistake to keep my rapists baby.

However, I am in my late twenties and I am worried that if I have an abortion now I am going to not be able to have children down the road. Plus I am not entirely sure that I want to have an abortion. Even though this child was created in bad circumstances, I find myself attached and having difficulty deciding to have an abortion. But the majority of people in my life (including friends, family and my partner) all thing that I would be incredibly "stupid" to have this baby.

Does anybody have experience with this? Any advice? Am I completely crazy for wanting to continue this pregnancy?
