A few moments ago, through no fault of my own, I found myself shot in the chest.  Bam.  What I believe to be a .38 caliber bullet, right in the ol' torso.

Now, this may sound bad.  And I'm not going to lie, it stings a little bit, and the edges of my vision are getting dark and blurry.

But I am not caving in and going to a hospital.  The thing is, as horrific and terrible as this is, I know this shooting is what God intended to happen, and I am not one to question His plan.  This bullet lodged in my left ventricle is a gift from Him, and to forcibly extract it from its home in my heart would be an affront to His plan.

As I lay here contemplating this new gift, however, it occurs to me that while I feel pretty great about my decision, there are some out there - especially women! - who might not have the foresight or mental capacity to come to this correct conclusion.

Thus, with however many breaths I have left, I am going to be encouraging my friends and family to line up behind the Mourdock/Romney/Luxury-Yacht Act of 2012, which will forbid healthcare treatment for those fortunate enough to have received God's gift of medium-caliber ammunition in a vital organ.

Thank you and God bless America.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
