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.

Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate and Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock on abortion and pregnancy resulting from rape.

Essentially, if you have a uterus, and you become pregnant from a rape, just remember — that’s God turning rapey lemons into blessed unwanted lemonade. </sarcasm>

Oh, and what’s that Mitt Romney? You’re supporting him? In an ad posted this Sunday that’s all over Indiana’s airwaves?

Yep, because there’s nothing worse than Obamacare amirite? Y’know, other than being forced to bear your rapist’s child because your senator said his God said it should be so…

In a statement released this evening, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said: “Richard Mourdock’s rape comments are outrageous and demeaning to women. Unfortunately, they’ve become part and parcel of the modern Republican Party’s platform toward women’s health, as Congressional Republicans like Paul Ryan have worked to outlaw all abortions and even narrow the definition of rape. As Mourdock’s most prominent booster and the star of Mourdock’s current campaign ads, Mitt Romney should immediately denounce these comments and request that the ad featuring him speaking directly to camera on Mourdock’s behalf be taken off the air.”

Agreed. Your move, governor.
