GET REAL ABOUT LIFE!

When


When ‘God’s will,’ rape and pregnancy collide

By Wayne Drash, CNN

The Protestant chaplain has consoled about 50 pregnant rape victims - typically girls raped by their fathers - in his years working with the Phoenix Police Department.

People “should have compassion for the person whose life is messed up by this and not make her an instrument for our idiosyncratic, theological commitment,” Kushner said.

Someone getting pregnant through rape simply means biology continues to function,” Reese said. “That doesn’t mean God wills it.

Paul Root Wolpe, the director for the Center of Ethics at Emory University, said Mourdock’s comments were the equivalent “of saying you shouldn't pull people out of the rubble because God intended the earthquake to happen or we shouldn't try to cure disease because it's God who gave us the disease,” Wolpe said.

One Republican makes crazy statements about rape, and you malign and slander half of America with this thread? Is this a typical Democratic strategy, or just your misguidance? Sounds a bit desparate (as the numbers continue to show voters are making their choice, and it's not going to be for Barak Hussein)

So it seems quite obvious you're quite strongly on the side of the Republicans who have been making these strange and offensive comments about rape and women?

I don't know how any sane woman would vote for the GOP with these "Rape" remarks by these puke canidates in addition to Romney wanting to get rid of Planned Parenthood, is against abortion and if elected president would appoint Supreme Court justices that could possibly overturn Roe vs Wade.
It really is a War on Women's rights.

You dont get to pick and choose what rights women can and cannot have.

Forcing a woman to carry her rapists baby to term is a little bit more than just an inconvenience.

How about we worry about more important things than stupid comments about rape? I worry about the intellect of the American public, and the future of this country. It shows the American Idolization of the public here
