Another Cruel Rape Comment from a GOP Candidate

My latest blog post at The Objective Standard focuses on a particularly nasty debate comment about rape-induced pregnancy made by a Republican senate candidate. Here are the opening lines:

"Once again, a Republican congressional candidate has thrown the party back on its heels with a cruel comment concerning rape.
"In answer to a debate question on when abortion should be legal, Indiana GOP senate candidate Richard Mourdock said:
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."
