Agree or Disagree: Pregnancy from rape is something God intended


“The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother. I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

Robert Murdock GOP Senate candidate.

There was much outrage over this comment over the last week. Many of really struggled with this. One of the struggles is on the deepest level, Robert Murdock’s comments can be interpreted as rape being something God allowed to happen. That is for many reasons, very uncomfortable.

For those who don’t understand where the idea of “God intended rape” can come from. I saw this posted on Tony  Jones. He happened to post this written by John Piper.

So what do you think of this concept? And deeper then this,what are your thoughts on those who would consider abortion in cases of rape?

  1. disagree, God commands against rape, so if someone rapes he acts on his own, God doesn’t force anyone to obey his laws, but he does hold an accounting in time. so no he is not responsible for the pregeancy the creep who rapes is and should be punished severly for it.
