Richard Mourdock catching heat
for abortion comments

Fox 59, Indianapolis, IN, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:corndoggies, 10/24/2012 6:10:12 AM

U.S. Senatorial candidate Richard Mourdock is catching heat for comments he made during Tuesday's debate. When asked about abortion, the Republican said he opposes abortion in cases of rape and incest because "even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended."

Comments:
I swear I think our candidates are politically suicidal.

We are all children of God even those of us who are born of rape. We should not punish the innocent for the crimes of his or her father. Do not fall into the solipsistic arguments of the left. Respect life. Punish the rapists and help the victims.

He is right. He was asked a question about his beliefs and he answered truthfully. Admirable. Its the slimy dims and the way they attempt to twist right into wrong that will prove politcally suicidal this election season.

Sometimes candidates say STUPID things, this is one of those times. He will try to clarify his comment, however the dems are going to pounce on this guy unlike anything he could ever imagine.

I'm with 4. We would have had Delaware and Nevada (no Reid) in 2010.

Lugar was a D is all but party affliation anyway. Lugar did not get my vote in the last election (I wrote in Mickey Mouse). We are fine with Mourdock....

Why is it stupid? He stood up for life. It isn't the innocent baby who deserves the death penalty. I have never understood the "except in the case of rape or incest" argument. The baby is still a baby, regardless of how it got there. You aren't really prolife if you say otherwise.

Why do pro abortion candidates ever get asked follow up questions about their extremist views? Why no questions asking the candidate if he's cool with a woman aborting a nearly full term baby? Or ask candidate X if he agrees with Obama's infanticide vote(s).

This is the more insidious media bias.

All life is sacred. Mourdock should be applauded, not condemned, for his words. I hope the voters in Indiana see it that way.

Mourdock took the bait. His answer made it sould like God intended the rape, when Mourdock meant He intended the conception. Mourdock needs to get back out in front of this, make ONE clarification and stand by his comment, then move on. It may not be enough to save his campaign, but anything else he does probably will only give Donnelly more ammo.

Taking bets as to how quickly the abortion comments appear in a Donnelly ad. I say this evening.

It is a tragic day in our country when it is considered politically suicidal to respect life. Baha'i Scripture says the first prayer a baby should hear has the phrase 'Thou hast come by the command of God'

If you believe in abortion in cases of rape and incest, then you fundamentally don't think a foetus is a person. If a foetus isn't a person, there is no reason to be against any abortion ever.

If a foetus is a person, then it is no less a person by having been conceived via rape or incest.

Also, the genetic problems associated with incest are not as dire as commonly believed. Generations of inbreeding amplify risk of genetic problems, but a single instance is not a death sentence for the resultant child. Chances are almost as good as anybody else's that the child will be healthy.

I'm not advocating incest in any way. I just want to be clear that there is no need to panic into murder.

Bottom line: Either abortion is murder or it isn't.

So what if it wasn't the defenseless kid's fault that he was conceived via rape or incest. Kill him! I find it incredible when people get selective over the sanctity of life issue.

Last year I met a woman who was conceived by rape. She is a mother now herself. Would she and her children have been better off not to have been born, her husband deprived of a woman and children he loves? When will we start to think instead of emoting?

One would think the Akin stupidity would make other white male Republicans avoid saying something just as dangerous. Clue to white republican men: avoid the trap the left has set for you. Do not step into the jaws. Have a little sense. Talk about the tragedy of rape. Say no one but a victim of rape understands the trauma. Say anything but stand up on a stage and commit hari cari.

Yeah, so he voiced his deepest internal beliefs. But! He's in a campaign! We all have deep, personal beliefs, and still we should realize, as thinking adults, not all of them need to be vocalized to TV reporters and not all of them would be easily accepted by the general public. This is one of those beliefs. He should have known better. Good politicians know how to filter their own, deep thoughts before letting them pass through the lips.

He's right in all aspects of what he said. The baby may have been the discoverer of the best alternative fuel or a new way of purifying seawater. But the baby should be killed to punish the father? That is the biggest problem with society right now. The trivialization of life (like in China) and always putting the blame on someone else.

I agree with him, but he should have tried to Jay Carney his response. Sorry, but this subject is a loser for Republicans and now we will have a Senate that will fight Romneys Supreme Court appointments.

Nevada & Delaware last time. We very well will lose MA, IN, MO,ME this time. May not pick up FL, MT or ND. Being elected matters and you don't have influence by being defeated.

I respect the man for being honest but he just committed political suicide and maybe took a lot of us with him. You can tell from the bewildered look on his face that he doesn't know what hit him. The rest of the world does not see things the exact way you do, Mr. Mourdock. If only some in the Tea Party and other committed believers could use a little common sense in who they chose to back.

It's also admirable, in a way, that committed Christians are unwavering in their beliefs. I guess that's what being committed means. The Taliban are also committed and unwavering in their beliefs. Can't you see the connection? You had better heed #4, #5, and #6 and stop nominating these purists. They are dragging us all down. What will you do then, become a martyr.?

#20 - Oh, gee, I don't know. The Taliban are unwavering and committed about killing people. The Christians are committed about *NOT* killing people. Would that make a tiny difference?

It’s been a year since Glenn Olvey stood up in the middle of his family room, settled for a moment on the idea of going to bed, and then, without a hint of a warning, found himself being blasted across the room. Today, his most tangible reminders of the explosion that ripped apart the Richmond Hill neighborhood that night are the vacant lot where his house once stood and the pieces of wood and glass that penetrated deep into his skin during the blast and are just now pushing their way to the surface — a year later.

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

Elizabeth K.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
