“The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother. I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
— Richard Mourdock, Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Indiana
Mourdock’s remarks, made during a debate in Indiana Tuesday evening, have liberal Democrats and their friends in the MSM in full-blown freak-out mode tonight:
Watch the video. Read the transcript. Mourdock simply said life is a gift from God, and he believes this to be true even in cases where life results from “that horrible situation of rape.”
What is objectionable about that? Nothing at all.
Unless, that is, you are a liberal who wants to make it seem as though Mourdock supports rape:
Naturally, Democrats wasted no time tying Mourdock’s so-called “pro-rape” comments to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney:
It gets worse. Some deranged Twitter users are urging Mourdock to commit suicide. Or are calling for him to be tortured, shot, or killed.
These people are desperate and disgusting. Richard Mourdock sticks up for babies born to rape victims, and he is viciously attacked.
And they think we need counseling?
Decent Twitter users defended Mourdock and his principled stance:
And what’s this?
That, of course, doesn’t support the liberals’ narrative. So don’t expect it to get much attention.
GOP nominee Mitt Romney did not pull his endorsement of Mourdock, but distanced himself from the Indiana candidate’s remarks.
