There has been an outbreak of measles here in Alberta. As such, in this article, the Alberta Health Services is recommending children get vaccinated immediately.
Many will actually get vaccinated . They have seen the research and have seem positive impacts. However, there are still many that have resisted. They insist there are some serious risks and getting vaccinated is not a good idea.
This the column/story I wrote in Beacon News today.
I know that I have had many discussions around the table with my friends about health. And to be honest, I have been looking for ways to bring up things like this. Timing always being a little bit of an issue.
But we are here now. I do think this is an important topic.
What do you think of the idea and encouragement of reducing meat in your diet?
“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.”

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?
