As-salamu alaykum, Sister.

A woman who has been raped is innocent of any crime. A baby conceived by rape is, of course, equally innocent.

Of course she is permitted to keep her baby.

The Prophet (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘No babe is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim).’

(Sahih Muslim: Book 033, number 6426).

This means that the child’s family is obliged to take care of her; to spend of their time and resources on her; and to bring her up well. Care for the child is not to be left to the mother alone.

I hope this helps.
