Covenant Theological Seminary Response to Comments by Todd Akin

In instances of rape against women that result in pregnancy, this includes caring for the unborn child as well.

ST. LOUIS, Missouri – August 20, 2012 – Covenant Theological Seminary has never taught, and in no way affirms, that the female body is capable of preventing pregnancy caused by rape.

Covenant Theological Seminary affirms that rape, in all its forms, is wicked. In regard to rape against women, men, and children, we believe that the Gospel calls us to show love, compassion, and support for the victims and their families. In all circumstances surrounding the trauma, we must name the evil, seek justice, and care for those affected by such horrendous acts. In instances of rape against women that result in pregnancy, this includes caring for the unborn child as well.
