Oh boy. Fur’s going to fly on this one:
Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said pregnancies resulting from rape are part of God’s plan, tearfully explaining that he only supports abortions when a mother’s life is in danger.
“I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen,” Mourdock said during Tuesday’s Senate debate, choking up. Mourdock’s opponent, Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly, opposes abortion except in cases of rape and incest.
If you’re still unclear on his stance, he later clarified:
“Are you trying to suggest somehow that God preordained rape, no I don’t think that,” said Mourdock, according to The Associated Press. “Anyone who would suggest that is just sick and twisted. No, that’s not even close to what I said.”
Yup. That cleared it up. Clear as mud.
The election cannot come soon enough and I hope women take note of this person’s name (Mourdock) and not vote for him. It’s getting crazy out there…
