I just want to point out the eminent implication in CBT's scoffing: God did not plan for the lives of those who were conceived during a rape, therefore, they should be terminated.

I think all three posts above are totally wrong, even though they appear to be on opposite sides. I am conservative, generally vote Republican, and most of all, believe that this nation is governed by the Constitution. First of all, abortion is wrong, and there is no justification for taking the life of a child because it was conceived by a rape. Murder is murder.

Having said that, there is no way I would vote for the idiot running for the Senate from Indiana who stated "it was something God intended to happen." God never intends for a sinful act to happen. It is obvious the senate candidate has no idea what he is talking about, and is using God and Scripture to obtain political power. That goes twice for the other idiot running for the Senate in Missouri.

Aside from that, anyone who would make such a statement in a political campaign obviously has no common sense, and that is the last thing we need added to the disaster we already have in Washington.

I did not see where he said God intended for the rape to happen. He seems to be saying that God intended for the pregnancy to happen. Two different things.

I also noticed that his opponent is also pro life, which further begs the question, why was it ever brought up in the first place? If two candidates are pro life, then it is not an issue. I am sure there are plenty of issues to talk about like jobs, foreign policy, and the budget.

To say he was asked the question by the media, that is true. However, it was his choice has to how he answered it. Of all the answers he could have given, from "I am pro life, it speaks for itself" to a hundred others, he chose this one.

The wording could have been better but the point remains.

I see the coward Romney has distanced himself from these remarks.

I would have too. Its not for me to explain what he meant, the wording could be construed a number of ways as we see on this very thread.

I prefer honest politicians who speak their mind, and don't worry about how it will be "construed".

"“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said at a debate. “And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”


Somebody point out to me his mistake in that statement.
