Romney's Senate Candidate: Pregnancy by Rape is God's Will
alternet.org — Just as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney thought he had that pesky War on Women problem under control, a new front was opened Tuesday night in a debate between Indiana’s candidates for U.S. Senate. Richard Mourdock, explaining why his anti-abortion position allowed no exception for rape victims, contended that sometimes such a pregnancy is just what God ordered up. “I've struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said, according to a report in the Evansville Courier Press . “And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” And right now the airwaves of the Hoosier state are saturated with political ads, including one featuring Romney speaking directly to the camera with an endorsement of Mourdock.
