Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock is standing by his statement that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape “that’s something God intended.”
“I spoke from my heart. And speaking from my heart, speaking from the deepest level of my faith, I would not apologise. I would be less than faithful if I said anything other than life is precious, I believe it’s a gift from God.”

Here is a statement made by a Republican Senate candidate who says that since his beliefs persuade him that LIFE comes from God, and LIFE as he believes, starts at CONCEPTION, even a pregnancy caused by RAPE is to be viewed as LIFE as mandated by God and accepted by the rape victim as LIFE granted to the zygote which she carries during pregnancy and should not go for termination of pregnancy.
This belief is okay had Richard Mourdock had been the rape victim and he had to carry the zygote for which the criminal had contributed without the victim’s consent. But that is not the case. The rape victim is someone else other than Richard, so for him to IMPOSE HIS BELIEF SYSTEM ON ANOTHER PERSON would be denying the right for the individual to decide on issues which impact her LIFE.
The issue is, the Rape victim’s LIFE is also a LIFE granted by God, with unalienable rights of INTEGRITY OF ONE’S PERSON. That integrity has been violated by the RAPIST and the trail of his crime is blossoming as the pregnancy in the victim’s womb. Now on the grounds that LIFE which is taking shape in the womb of the victim is from GOD, the pregnancy should not be terminated, is insulting another LIFE (Victim’s LIFE) which had also been granted by God. It is better to kill a symbol of CRIME before it had manifested itself as a full grown child and born into this world.
Further, the woman who is carrying the child has the absolute right, along with the medical advice, to terminate the pregnancy.
To bring in the element of God and make a woman go through a pregnancy which she probably abhors, is the most damnable representation of God’s interest. GOD is GOOD and I am sure He would not want a victim to suffer further the humiliation of having allowed her egg to be fertilized by the sperm of a rascal who had inflicted this great evil upon a woman, who neither consented for the sexual relationship nor is happy after the pregnancy.
In Deuteronomy 22 chapter, of the Old Testament it says:
28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;
29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.
if the senator is a man based on the Bible, he should also recommend imposition of 50 shekels of silver and ignore the Penal Code of the state of the USA, for the offence of RAPE. It is time that people become progressive. Even though the society has almost stopped capital punishments even for heinous crimes, it no where takes away the personal LIBERTY OF A HUMAN BEING to decide on issues relating to one’s body. This recommendation by the Senator is truly REGRESSIVE!
Using the name of God to sustain a criminal symbol is the last thing, which a would-be Senator should advocate! God bless America!
