GOP Senate Candidate: ‘God Intended’ Pregnancies From Rape
By Chris Good
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.
Look, I’m pro-life, but pro-life politicians need to remember that they’re neither scientists nor theologians–and speak much more wisely. Nevertheless, a candidate’s theological beliefs should not distract voters from the fact that a vote against Mourdock and other Republicans over this is a vote for Barack Obama and Harry Reid. If you don’t like what Mourdock said, and I don’t, write him a letter–but vote Republican.
