    from the Indiana courier-journal.com:

    "Richard Mourdock, the tea party extremist who ousted longtime U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar in the primary, exceeded extreme Tuesday when he offered the jaw-dropping statement in a debate that he opposes abortion even in the case of rape because “life is that gift from God.”

    In his words: “I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something God intended to happen.” (See the video of the comment.)

    Really? God intended that a woman be raped and become pregnant?

    Voters of Indiana, wake up! Especially women voters! Polls show the race to be a dead heat and people who support Mr. Mourdock need to understand exactly who they would be sending to Washington.

    Mr. Donnelly, a Roman Catholic, is no fan of abortion. But he appeared dumbfounded by Mr. Mourdock’s statement, saying after the debate his God would not do that and calling the comment “shocking.”

    Mr. Mourdock’s comments come in the wake of the now-infamous “legitimate rape” statement of GOP Senate candidate Todd Akin in Missouri that women somehow biologically avoid becoming pregnant by rape.

    These are the kinds of candidates people especially women do not need in the U.S. Senate. Their words speak for themselves.

    Romney supports Mordock and is appearing in tv commercials to show that Romney stands by the man who believes rape pregnancies are a gift from God. Ryan has donated sizable amounts of money to Mourdock. No other Senate candidate has received this degree of support from Team Romney.
    Mourdock and his ilk believe women who are rape victims should have no say in their medical choices. Republicans believe that only politicians have authority over women's reproductive healthcare.
