    (CNN) – Richard Mourdock, running for U.S. Senate in Indiana, said at a debate Tuesday that pregnancies resulting from rape are intended by God.

    The Republican candidate was explaining his opposition to abortion in cases of rape or incest when he made the remark.

    Another whacked out religious nutjob.
    I wish these people would keep their mouths shut, how hurtful and offensive would it be for a rape victim to be told that if she gets pregnant, it was Gods will?

    Actually, He said God can do miracles and bring about good even when people do evil.

    Richard Mourdock On Abortion: Pregnancy From Rape Is 'Something God Intended'

    Mourdock: God at work when rape leads to pregnancy - Yahoo! News

    It will be interesting to see how many other Hoosiers believe God intends rape to happen.

    Anyone who understands the power of God can see the wisdom in his statement. You have to be able to understand that an all powerful being is capable of producing good from evil. It's is such a simple concept that even liberals can grasp it --- at least I would think they would have an intellect developed enough to understand it. Maybe I'm wrong here??...

    Mourdock's god is an asshole.

    And for him to claim knowledge of his or any other god's intention is blasphemy.

    According to the Bible every thing that happens, happens according to plan.

    It's not blasphemy to know that about God that which he tells us.

    You folks make me laugh, if this guy is elected he will be 1% off the US Senate, even if 100% shared his opinion they could not cahange anything that exist in law today. The supremes have ruled abortion legal, so one of two things must happen to change that. Either the supremes reverse themselves which is highly unlikely, or a constitutional amendment is proposed by congress, which requires a super majority of both houses and approval of the states. Even if one of the two occurs, they would also have to ban the day after pill, a pill that prevents pregnancy, the likelyhood of that happening is even slimmer. So you can take your scare tactics and put them back in your little box, cause women aren't stupid.
