Another wingnut Republican candidate is getting himself in trouble by saying incredibly stupid and offensive things about rape. This time it’s Richard Mourdock, who is so far to the right that Richard Lugar refused to campaign for him. And he says that it’s God’s will when a woman gets raped and gets pregnant:
Defending his stance that abortion should be illegal even in the case of rape, Mourdock explained that pregnancy resulting from nonconsensual sex is the will of God.
“I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said. “And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Seriously, don’t these guys have campaign managers to tell them not to say shit like that? If not, you should fire them. And if you’re just too stupid not to says it, fire yourself.
