The Republican Party seems to have a problem keeping a muzzle on their candidates this year. First Todd Akins claimed that women rarely get pregnant from legitimate rape then Jon Hubbad and Loy Mauch claimed slavery was a blessing in disguise. Now a Republican Senate candidates named Richard Mourdock has publicly stated that pregnancies resulting from rape are a gift from God:
Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday when a woman is impregnated during a rape, “it’s something God intended.”
Mourdock, who’s been locked in a tight race with Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly, was asked during the final minutes of a debate whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.
“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happened,” Mourdock said.
Are these clowns trying to see who can say the dumbest statement publicly? Perhaps he’s hoping to get some of that sweet RandPAC money.
