If God intended that a woman become pregnant as a result of a rape, did God also intend for a man to kill his entire family during a domestic dispute, or for a drunk driver to kill an entire family on the road, or for a mentally disturbed person to shoot and kill others at a school, political rally, movie theater, or during a gang war?
Did God intend for children to be sold or kidnapped into illegal prostitution all across the world? Or did He intend for John Wayne Gacy, Richard Speck, Adolf Hilter (and many other serial killers) to commit the heinous acts they did?
Among the many reasons I cannot vote for state or national Republicans, high on the list is their patriarchal, demeaning and misogynistic attitudes toward women, their heath, their right to control their own reproductive issues, and their right to equal pay. (Remember, Paul Ryan, voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.)
But this latest foray against women is the worst. Really, Richard Mourdock?
