October 24, 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate -Mitt Romney endorsed Richard Mourdock, the Indiana GOP candidate for the Senate seat in Indiana. In a debate last night, Richard Murdoch made a statement that has outraged women across the country.
These are candidate Richard Mourdock’s actual statement in a debate last night:
“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 happen,” Mourdock said.
This was the one and only endorsement Mitt Romney has issued for the 2012 Election, he endorses a right wing religious fanatic attempting to over turn Roe. V. Wade, and Romney himself calls his views pro-life.
While referencing his policies on abolishing abortion, in his right wing fanaticism that rivals Todd Akin in Missouri Richard Mourdock denies a woman the right to abort a rapists child.
When speaking about rape that is a civil and illegal act of violence against a woman
Murdoch said he would not allow a raped woman to receive an abortion because
“god intended it to happen” meaning god sanctions rape.
Candidate Mitt Romney endorsed this man, this religious fanatic running for the US Senate which exemplifies the GOP War against Women.
This is Mourdock’s Statement
The rape comments are demeaning to women as the republican party continues the war on women, taking away a woman’s right to chose even in cases of rape and the life of the mother. The republicans have changed their pro-life stance now, just weeks before the election, that would allow abortion in cases of rape.
This hardly can be believed that in this day and age and over 40 years after the Women’s Liberation Movement that these policies are being brought back again in this day and age.
Under Roe v. Wade abortion has been the law of the land and these red state’s pro-life activists are attempting to outlaw abortion and the reproductive rights of women in this election.
Romney’s Endorsement of Richard Mourdock One Day Before Mourdock said god intended it to happen, rape is not an excuse for an abortion in the state of Indiana.
