Republican senate candidate Richard Mourdock, R-Ind., explained in a debate why he opposes abortion in almost all cases, including rape or incest. “I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen,” Mourdock said.
Here’s the video, cut by the Indiana Democrats:
Mourdock’s opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly, responded in a statement after the debate. “The God I believe in and the God I know most Hoosiers believe in, does not intend for rape to happen—ever,” he said. “What Mr. Mourdock said is shocking, and it is stunning that he would be so disrespectful to survivors of rape.”
Just this week, Mitt Romney cut a statewide ad on behalf of Mourdock, calling him “the 51st vote” needed to repeal the health care reform law.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
