    I vehemently disagree with these politicians who think they know what God intends. I can't tell you the sense of helplessness that comes from a woman and her young daughter showing up in a domestic violence center, both of them scared to death, and mom's desperation after learning her 12 year old daughter was raped by her own husband (the girl's stepfather). I will point these mothers and daughters to the nearest abortion clinic every time if that's what they're looking for. And then I'll point them to the nearest gun store so that Mom can ensure he never lays another hand on either one of them. So far, both abortions and guns are legal in my state - and it needs to stay that way.
    I don't pretend to know what God 'intends', but I'm pretty sure He didn't intend for these monsters to annihilate His children.

    "even when life begins with that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen."
    Seriously? Are people actually defending this position? Defending what that ignorant and vile human being said?

    Come on people. This is no joke. This is disgusting, appalling, and highly disturbing.

    He's running for office and people are supporting him?

    In Missouri, Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin prompted an uproar by saying women's bodies have defenses against pregnancy after "legitimate rape," and now trails in his race.
    So if the woman "get's pregnant" it's obvious to Todd Akin the woman wasn't "raped"?

    WTF is he talking about?

    Cheap shot, like this entire thread. If you adopt a pro-life position for any religious reason, then it's likely that you believe God intended for every conception to occur, regardless of the circumstances-- his statement does not condone rape or say that rapists were doing God's will, but rather that the products of rape are just as much God's children as the products of loving married couples.

    Which, if you are truly Christian and truly pro-life, is self-evident.

    Believing in the "rape exception" to abortion bans as anything other than a compromise to save as many unborn children as possible is morally inconsistent-- and has rather horrifying implications for people who were conceived in that fashion.

    Rape and abortion are albatrosses bringing the republican party down. It is like daily any more that republicans say stupid **** in the abortion debate. If it is not rape it is a failure to understand basic medicine.

    FactCheck.org : The Life of the Mother

    Walsh made his controversial comments after an Oct. 18 debate with Democratic challenger Tammy Duckworth. Walsh said that with “modern technology and science,” there wasn’t “one instance” where an abortion would be necessary to save the mother’s life. When a reporter asked him to clarify that he was saying it was never medically necessary to perform an abortion to save the life of the mother, Walsh replied, “Absolutely.”

    News flash - pregnancy is biology. Not divine intervention.
