In last night’s Indiana Senatorial campaign debate, Republican Richard Mourdock proclaimed
"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."
Romney has distanced himself from this remark but continues to support Mourdock.
If you get pregnant from a rape
For you there’s really no escape
God’s planned this gift of life for you
There’s really nothing you can do
Abortion’s not to be considered
Accept God’s gift – don’t be embittered -
Instead, you should be overawed
Don’t try to thwart the will of God.
That’s what Mourdock has explained
He thinks knows what God’s ordained
Beware the moral he’d instill:
A woman’s pain is just God’s will.
