Todd Akin has it right, if he just weren’t such a wimp. Okay, forcing raped women to carry their baby to term is a step in the right direction – freedom and human respect for all human life! The rapist must be punished, but never the fetus. Murderess mothers who would destroy the human life they bear must be stopped.
After all, rapists are rapists. Rape is a terrible wrong. No question about that, and, of course, we all sympathize with those who are the victims of rape, at least legitimate rape.
But we must always remember that rape is not murder. Murder is murder. And a woman who chooses an abortion commits murder.
We’ve got to keep things in perspective, and retain our sense of balance. The woman who destroys the rapist’s child is far worse than the rapist. She ought to be, must be, put to death. Only in that fashion will we have a society that shows its respect for the sacredness of all human life.
Sure, some will squawk, and wimps like Todd Akin undoubtedly will be unwilling to join the struggle for equity. But it’s time to call a spade a spade, and dig up those burial plots that are strewn with the remains of dead babies — babies who died simply because they were born of a mother who opened her legs and undoubtedly became pregnant because, deep down, she really wanted it (otherwise her natural defense mechanisms would have taken hold, as Akin noted before he wimped out). The rightful fathers of those children must have their rights recognized. These men, even the rapists among them, wanted to be fathers, and yearned for life for their unborn children. Their rights must not be defeated by abject murderers.
Remember what the bible teaches us: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a limb for a limb and, yes, a life for a life.
The rapist gives life. The abortionist mother snuffs it out. We need not ask about a moral comparison. There simply is none. In fact, we should have some compassion for the rapist whose child was murdered; sure, the rapist ought to be punished, but we must ask ourselves – Hasn’t he suffered enough?
So put the murderers to death! This, admittedly, may seem at the outset a harsh penalty for a woman who did not wish to be impregnated, and who had no choice in the matter. Only by imposing the ultimate punishment for destruction of human life can we prevent further murder, and, thus, protect life.
Without the vision, and the guts, to keep life sacred, millions of unborn children will continue to be murdered. We must act to prevent this holocaust. We must act now.
