US row over Congressman Todd Akin's rape remark
A row has erupted in the US after a congressman said women's bodies were naturally able to prevent pregnancy in the case of "legitimate rape".

Todd Akin, who is also running as Republican candidate for the Senate, made the comments in a TV interview to explain his strict views on abortion.

He later said he had "misspoken" but his Democratic rival said the comments were "beyond comprehension".

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he disagreed with the view.

I'll try to put this delicately with the disclaimer that while I do have some medical training, it is not in the area of conception... But when a woman is highly stressed as in a violent rape, she might not be as likely to conceive as when she is in a more relaxed state as in being romantic with a man who forces himself upon her. If this is what Rep. Akin was saying, then I agree with him. Sorry if this is a bit too mature of language and subject, but after speaking against abortion and sex ed in the public arena for many years, one learns to become rather blunt.

"[Emergency Contraception (EC)] originated in the 1960s as treatment for rape victims to prevent unintended pregnancy. Doctors would prescribe a high dose of regular birth control pills after a rape."

Life is life. We have no right to execute innocent children because of the sin of a person. I know that tape is a most heinous of acts that can be done to a person but does murdering a child change anything?

When we look at things soberly, the baby inside of a victim of rape or incest is just as innocent and just as much a viable human life as any other unborn child that has been conceived. However, women who do face this situation didn't bring the pregnancy on themselves. They never had a say in the matter, so it's a hard thing to "force" them to have the child. I would suggest lots of prayer and good Christian counselling for these victims and their families, so that they can overcome the pain and make the right choice. Even if they ultimately choose to give the baby up for adoption it is a better thing than taking the baby's life.

As for Akin's comment, I believe he didn't articulate himself very well.I do think I understood the point he wanted to make. I think some of his facts might be wrong and that he was speaking in generalities on a subject that is very sensitive. The Dems are all too quick to jump on this as an "issue" because Bammy isn't doing so hot.

Pregnancies due to rape or incest are relatively rare. They are special cases that must be dealt with with sensitivity and understanding on an individual basis.The bigger problem in this country is that millions of babies are murdered that are not the product of rape or incest. A Christian should not vote for Obama.

"We" are both right on this issue!
No one on this board will argue against what we are saying. At least I don't think they will. I just pray that people stop and think about what is taking place in our country and throughout the world and try and comprehend how God views these things. That includes me of course.

Okay, before everyone gets upset, I am stating up front that this comment has nothing to do with Akins, his beliefs, or his comment regarding rape. So, if someone feels it is necessary to disagree with me, please don't mention anything except what I say below.

If life begins at conception, and it does, and a raped woman aborts her this unborn life, then she is guilty of murdering an innocent life. The baby that is inside her has done absolutely nothing wrong to warrant being cut into pieces, burned to death or whatever other means is used.

Psalms 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. 14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.

Akin is probably a heretic, while the Catholic Church loves him, he is suppose to be a Presbyterian?

It's seems like he has no daughters, sisters, mother, and a silent wife? He definitely doesn't have a father!

Ah, what sort of punishment does he demand for forcible rape castration/sterilization? Like a Muslime he seems to think it's all the woman's fault. He must be a tea-party type?

Thomas Edison wrote:
Five percent of the people think;
ten percent of the people think they think;
and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.
100% of the Tea-Party types fall into that 85%

Akin had better come up with some better ideas for the victim, than the ones he has voiced.

If you're not with Obama's program you're a heretic.

Akin's a heretic.

A simple habit of using God's Word to support one's beliefs would certainly be sufficient and less trouble for Christians holding public office and while on the campaign trail...
