GOP lawmaker: Rape has a ‘silver lining’ and it comes in the form of babies

Earlier this week, The Missouri House of Representatives approved a measure dubbed the “Personhood Bill” that creates a new constitutional amendment on the state ballot defining unborn fetuses as full “persons,” giving full legal rights to “unborn human children at every stage of biological development.”

Earlier this week, The Missouri House of Representatives approved a measure dubbed the “Personhood Bill” that creates a new constitutional amendment on the state ballot defining unborn fetuses as full “persons,” giving full legal rights to “unborn human children at every stage of biological development.”

With the new amendment, the termination of an unborn fetus would be considered murder, making abortions a criminal action. This also includes some forms of birth control and contraceptives.

A similar bill called the “All Lives Matter Act” was introduced by the current bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Mike Moon. Moon is seeking protection for the unborn because he is a “former embryo.”

Moon is also known for calling a special legislative session to stop “the potential Islamization of Missouri” and for demanding the impeachment of Democratic Governor Jay Nixon because he allowed same sex couples who were married in other states to file joint tax returns in the state of Missouri.

Moon isn’t the only one pushing for the personhood rights of fetuses. Fellow Republican Representative Tila Hubrecht came out and defended the bill in a rather eyebrow-raising way.

When asked during a debate on the amendment if she believes that it’s just or compassionate to force a woman who’s been raped to have the child of her attacker,  Hubrecht said she’s met people conceived under those circumstances and that “there’s a reason for their life.”

“Sometimes bad things happen, and they’re horrible things,” she added. “But sometimes God can give us a silver lining through the birth of a child.”

    Read “Blueprint for Theocracy” by James Sanford, or “American Theocracy” by Kevin Phillips if you want to see how the religious right is infiltrating our school boards, city councils and on up the political ladders.
