The Republican Rape Dilemma

Thank you! This is the first well-presented commentary on the subject I've read. I don't believe rape, or any other violent act, is ever God's will. Nevertheless, violence against one's person is not a license for further violence...and abortion is an act of violence any way you cut it. "Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord; I will repay." God will judge every evil act--in this life... or the next.

Then why don't you leave it to your God to decide whether or not to punish a woman for having an abortion?

Should I also leave it up to "my God" to decide whether or not to punish the woman who kills her one year old? Or the man who kills his wife? I believe that an abortion kills a living child. No different than killing a one year old(because it's causing her emotional pain for some reason) or a man killing his wife because he hates her. It ends the life of a living being. I am NOT going to argue THAT point with you. THAT is my belief.

Another example (they appear daily) why civilized societies did not allow women to vote. The verdict id in all over the world. Pre-1900, mostly Right to Conservative governments, with freedom expanding -- post-1900, Leftism on parade, freedom yields to security, rationality yields to emotion, reality yields to fantasy. Women as a sex have no respect for honor, justice, or truth. No, they want what they want, period. A raped woman determined to kill the baby isn't 'thinking' in any sense that a man can understand. With a hundred couples waiting for every baby, the only possible burden on the rape victim is carrying the baby to term. No balancing that with killing the child. But the victim wants to kill the baby because it is partly her.....

Often it is the MAN who pressures the women to have an abortion. Obviously not in the case of rape but in relationship.
Women have no honor, justice or truth, huh? Boy your mama must be proud of you. I pray to God you have no daughters. You make the KKK look like pansys.

Don't bother to run for public office if you're determined to stick a raped woman with her rapist's baby. That platform cannot win an election.

You're right,of course. Can't win an election so maybe we should just cry off and let you liberals run the world

As Richard Mourdock’s Indiana Senate fate hinges on how voters absorb his views on rape, all conservatives have an opportunity for a look in the mirror.

Just how pro-life do we want to be?

The Mourdock controversy is nothing like Todd Akin’s self-inflicted wound in Missouri, the result of an embrace of just plain bad medical information.

Mourdock is in hot water for accurately (if not particularly skillfully) articulating what God instructs about the life of the unborn.

If he is on politically shaky ground, it is because he had the courage to stand on the...
