Indiana Senate Candidate: Pregnancies from Rape are God’s Will [Politics]

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.

“I struggled with it myself for a long time, and I realized that life is a gift from God, and I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something God intended to happen,” Mourdock said, explaining that he would allow for exceptions to an abortion ban when a mother’s life is in danger.
