King's remarks

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

I hear and read things Congressman Steve King supposedly said. I'm not sure what to believe. I do believe he wants to do his best to represent the 4th District.

Incest and rape are terrible in all cultures and religions. We have laws in our country that should be enforced to the fullest when someone is charged with such crimes.

A woman or a child who is violated and or made pregnant should be given immediate medical, psychological, family, and social help. The unborn baby should also be given that same immediate consideration a chance to be born and live. It isn't up to the contemporary dysfunctional society to decide that baby who is a victim of incest or rape should die! A child doesn't have to be raised in a dysfunctional family. The United States has a wonderful social network for a child to be adopted and grow up in a stable loving family.

In the beginning I believe God made Adam and gave him a woman that Adam named Eve. They had children, boys and girls. We know the first two boys named Cain and Abel. They procreated (reproduced) and begot (generated fathered), according to the Bible, and I assume other religions teach the same origins. Here we are many generations later trying to figure out right and wrong, and not doing a very good job of it.
