Mitt Romney endorsed candidate: pregnancy from rape is "something God intended to happen"
Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who has been endorsed by Mitt Romney in a direct-to-camera TV ad, said that at a debate this week that he opposes abortion even in the case of rape because a pregnancy from rape is “something God intended to happen.”
Mourdock's full comment: "I've just 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."
Romney’s ad for Mourdock is the only direct to camera ad Romney’s done for any Senate candidate in the general election.
