So, have you heard about the GOP War on Women, 2012?
I’m sure you have already read about this story somewhere already, but if not yet another GOP Senate candidate has pledged his unwavering support to the rights of fetuses forcibly implanted without the consent of the mother, at the obvious expense of the rights of said mother. Yeah, that’s right, yet one more voice added to the choir of “we don’t give a shit if you got raped or not, you are having that fucking baby!”
“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said at a debate. “And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Mourdock of course claims that we are twisting his words:
“For speaking from my heart, from the deepest level of my faith, I cannot apologize,” he said.
“I would be less than faithful to my faith if I said anything other than life is precious. I think it is a gift from God. I don’t think God would ever want anyone harmed, sexually abused, or raped. I think it’s wrong when someone wants to take what I said and twist it,” he said.
Once again, here is Mourdock’s comment, untwisted:
“And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Let’s see if I can sort this out. God doesn’t want you to get raped, but he isn’t going to stop you from getting raped. (probably because you were dressed like a slut and asking for it anyways) And if God wants you to get pregnant but you are not cooperating with his plans, and you just happen to get raped, well, you have to have the rape baby because that’s what God intended…
Look, all joking aside, the God Mourdock worships is one sick fuck. Is the rape baby like a consolation prize? “I didn’t want you to get raped, but since you did, here is a gift from me!” “Look, it is God. I was feeling really horrible that you got raped while I was busy damning gay people to hell, so I was trying to figure out a way to make it up to you. Here’s what I came up with; a baby so you can relive the rape constantly and never put it behind you! Aren’t I kind and just?”
Well, at least we can take comfort in knowing that mainstream members of the GOP are going to be quickly backing away from Mourdock. Right?
Mitch McConnell, the GOP leader in the US Senate, is standing behind Tea Party Senate candidate from Indian, Richard Mourdock, who in a debate the other night said that when a rape victim gets pregnant, God intended the pregnancy and it’s a “gift.”
GOP Sen. John McCain initially criticizing Mourdock, but now has changed his mind. And GOP wonderboy Marco Rubio of Florida is also standing behind Wannabe Senator Rape-Baby.
Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said. “We disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him.”
