Mourdock: Pregnancy Due To Rape Is “God’s Will”

 

In a stunning demonstration of Republican brain density, GOP Senate candidate from Indiana Richard Mourdock has joined the lemming-esque political suicide spree of conservatives by stating it is his belief that “….life is a gift from God, and I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something God intended to happen.” Mourdock wants to deny a woman the right to choose abortion, allowing exceptions only in the case of the mother’s life being in danger.

Mourdock now joins such stellar GOP rape experts as Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri, who infamously said in the case of “legitimate rape” pregnancy cannot occur. Apparently Mourdock, like Akin, has decided the campaign for Senate just isn’t tough enough so he has decided to make it more challenging for himself.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has endorsed Mourdock, but immediately distanced himself from the Indianan’s statements.
