Prayers vs. Feminists

Every afternoon at my school, there is an anti-abortion prayer. “Pray for mothers who don’t want to be mothers, that they carry on and not be afraid to carry out god’s will.” Thing like that. And I was thinking how funny it is that if a bad thing happens to anybody else in this world, it’s the devil at work, or evil, but if a woman is raped or not ready to be a mother for whatever reason, it is still “god’s will”. Even if her life and well-being is at risk.  It is not the responsibility of any woman to become a mother. If she wants to be a mother, then that’s a great thing. But women do not exist just to be mothers, or to give up themselves and “say yes to god”.
