Indiana Senate Candidate Reflects an Anti-Woman Ideology

Oct 29, 2012

Indiana State Treasurer and U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock made headlines recently when he commented that pregnancies stemming from rape are “something that God intended to happen.” It was his way to argue that rape victims should not be allowed the right to abortion.

It’s the same as saying “God intends inequality and violence against women and that they should suffer.” Maybe Mourdock’s “god” does–but those ideas and the people who promote them belong in the dustbin of history.
