OKLAHOMA REPUBLICAN IMPLIES RAPE AND INCEST IS “THE WILL OF GOD”

A controversial anti-abortion bill passed the House Tuesday, but not before a heated debate over the Bible, rape, and incest.

HB1549 punishes doctors who perform abortions if the mother is seeking one because of a genetic disorder.

“Abortion offends God, plain and simple,” Rep. John Bennett said on the House floor.

The debate went on for more than an hour Tuesday.

“I heard statements of ‘why are we wasting our time on a pro-life bill up here? We need to worry about the budget.’ Let me ask you this, what is more important to you? Money or life?” Bennett said.

Rep. George Faught’s bill would ban doctors from performing abortions if the mother is seeking one because of a genetic abnormality or down syndrome.

Doctors could face steep fines up to $100,000.

“Representative, is rape the will of God?” Rep. Cory Williams asked Faught.

“Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there are a couple circumstances where that happened, and the Lord uses all circumstances,” Faught replied.

“Is incest the will of God?” Williams asked.

“Same answer,” Faught said.
