GOP's Mourdock: Pregnancy From Rape Intended By God

First there was GOP Representative Todd Akin, who talked about the impossibility of pregnancy from "legitimate rape." Now there's GOP Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock (R-Indiana), who voices the opinion regarding pregnancy due to rape that "... even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen." This spew comes in the runup to succeed moderate Republican, long-time Senator Richard Lugar, who was defeated in the primary

Do the GOP have a factory somewhere that turns out these mental defectives? How many more can we expect to see before the election?

Oh, and please note: Rmoney supports Mourdock in a campaign ad. Doesn't that put an end to all Rmoney's obfuscation about his positions on women's issues?

The irony is that Akin's and Mourdock's pronouncements are fully compatible with this year's GOP platform, which mentions no exceptions at all... not rape, not incest... to its advocacy against abortion.

Akin and Mourdock are more vocal about it than most. But threats to the rights of women are at the core of what the Republican Party advocates. It's who they are.

Women: if you hold yourself in high esteem, get out there and vote against Republicans!

UPDATE: Mourdock's opponent, Blue Dog Rep. Joe Donnelly, is also anti-choice. I swear, I no longer have a party that represents me in Washington.


  1. And it is obviously part o God's plan for Mourdock to be a fucking arsehole pardon my language

    1. jams, God has nothing to do with making Mourdock an asshole; simple biology and wrongheaded upbringing did the job with no divine help.

      I am astonished, though, that he actually may win a Senate race with that misbegotten attitude. It's not impossible!

  2. "You Don't Own Me"!

    1. Enfant, you obviously know me well! Strange as it may seem, Ms. Gore's message resonated with me even when I was a very young teen, and I have tried to take it as a matter of principle ever since. Thanks for your reminder of a significant song of our youth!
