Life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something God intended to happen.”–Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, (R-Indiana). 


The Lord works in mysterious ways

Like flowers in the night that bloom

He scans, with his all-seeing gaze,

Like ultrasound inside your womb.


And for you, as it was for Eve

Here’s what he wants to see there:

If he decides you should conceive

A baby better be there.


No greater gift is there than life

A baby to remind you

Of when some stranger pulled a knife

As he came up behind you.


And maybe you had other plans.

Well, listen to the burning bush.

God’s purposes align with man’s.

So woman, just shut up and push.
