Oh my god, what is it with these guys? Richard Mourdock, up for a senate seat in Indiana, said DURING A DEBATE that he thought pregnancies resulting from rape were god’s will. At least he understand that they’re scientifically possible?
Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, “that’s something God intended.”
Mourdock, who’s been locked in one of the country’s most watched Senate races, was asked during the final minutes of a debate with Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.
“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen,” Mourdock said. [AP]
I can’t say I’m surprised that these guys think this garbage, it’s that they feel comfortable saying it out loud during campaign events that terrifies me.
