Sharon Angle Does Not Like Abortion Even In The Case Of Rape Or Incest

06/29/10-by Bridgette P. LaVictoire
Sharon Angle has made it clear that she does not believe that abortion should happen in any and all cases. They should not happen in the case of rape, incest, or the health of a mother. According to her, “God has a plan.”

Sharon Angle believes absolutely in the Great Watchmaker in the Sky. She believes in this cold hearted, rational, logical, and detached God who does not care if a bird falls from the sky or a woman dies in childbirth because, after all, her death is part of his Plan- or at least the ineffable plan that His followers believe He has. She is a believer in the worst of all of the patriarchal abuses and excesses of the Christian Faith while not being willing to be bound by them by not staying home and being a housewife. She seeks to tear down all the advances of the feminist movement while making absolutely sure that she benefits from every single one of those advances. She believes in tearing down the ladder for female advancement after she has reached the top.

In their book Good Omens, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman both wrote about the Apocalypse. The book follows the angel Aziraphael and the demon Crowley as they try to prevent the end of the world. Aziraphael often talked about the ineffable plan of God, but he made the point that, because it is ineffable and unknown to any but Himself, no one knew what was suppose to happen. What they thought they were not suppose to do might turn out to be what they were suppose to do. It turned out that Aziraphel and Crowley were suppose to rebel, and that God’s plan to bring humanity to the brink of the Apocalypse and the world was suppose to end was absolutely set. He had laid down every single piece that was going to happen, even the things that supposedly went against His plan.

Often times in my transition from being physically male to being physically female, I have been told that God does not make mistakes. I have always retaliated with this- I am not the one saying that God made a mistake.

What Sharon Angle is doing is putting words into God’s mouth. She is choosing to play God through her supposed belief in God and his Plan. She said in response to a question about rape and incest “You know, I’m a Christian, and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.”

She does not know what God’s plan is, and it is always possible that God’s plan is for this raped woman to have an abortion. She, in her blind faith, is presuming to know what God’s plan is. Rape is often used to break people- mostly women. It is used to break women’s minds in order to try and enforce a belief in male superiority. The majority of all rapes happen because men seek power over women. What she does not see is that she is trying to place herself in God’s place, and in so doing committing the worst levels of sins.

Sharon Angle was named by Keith Olbermann as his Worst Person in the World today for her heartlessness.

      Good morning, and more than a little. I was working on a piece for school and did not want to shift my filters. To be honest, most of the time, it is just a difference in the language that I use. I am also working on a couple of pieces for the feminist magazine Trivia: Voices of Feminism. One of the pieces I’m doing up for Trivia is a piece about Mary Daly. While I did not agree with her stance on transsexuality, I found reading her works to be very empowering and helpful to me. It angers me to see so many women working to overthrow the progress we’ve made and get all the benefit, and worse since usually they are working to reestablish this patriarchal ideal which will, ultimately, send many of them back into home shackled. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Sarah Palin showed up in a dream I had standing in a Hall of Traitors.
