Rape: Separating Myth From Truth
Obviously, we need to debunk the myth that implies that, in cases of rape, the trauma to a female's body prevents any chance of pregnancy.
The second myth is a matter of semantics: There is a distinction between legitimate and illegitimate rape. No! Rape … is rape… and this despicable act is evil.
Personally, I believe when the congressman said, "if it's a legitimate rape," he was making the distinction between wanted sex verses unwanted sex.
God designed the sexual act to be a mutual expression of love between a married man and woman … to intimately communicate tenderness, endearment and devotion. In contrast, the Bible considers forced sex as a perversion of sex, an act of violence. The Word of God clearly refers to rape as "wicked." In Sodom and Gomorrah, a man named Lot said to those who were intent on rape … "Don't do this wicked thing" (Genesis 19:7 NIV).
