Women conceived after rape speak out for Mourdock

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Women born as a result of rape are defending Indiana Republican Richard Mourdock in the waning days of a campaign that has been shaken up by the Senate candidate's comments on rape and abortion.

The women call Mourdock a hero for opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest in a new video from the Chicago-based One Nation Under God Foundation.

One Nation executive director Paul Caprio said Thursday the video is being spread online through social networks, but that there are no plans to air the video on TV.

Mourdock's comments in a debate last week that pregnancy resulting from rape is something "God intended" re-shaped the tight Indiana Senate race and gave Democrats a new line of criticism to use against him.

"Your statement illustrates a point that all would be wise to inderstand about liberals. They believe they know better than the individual what`s best for them, and they have no qualms about forcing their agenda upon anyone." But its fine for you to impose your opinions on the rape victim who I believe is an “individual”. Kind of a double standard don't you think?

You`re not even lucid, how can you be "sure" of a thing about me? Not everyone has your horrific lack of concern for the lives of the unborn. Not everyone feels nothing at the thought of an unborn infant being torn apart in her mothers womb. Your statement illustrates a point that all would be wise to inderstand about liberals. They believe they know better than the individual what`s best for them, and they have no qualms about forcing their agenda upon anyone.

I’m sure you would change your mind if you were the one violated by some sadistic individual. Pretty easy to have an opinion when you know it can’t possibly happen to you!

Sadly, there are those who take Mourdocks words and twist them to fit their sleazy agenda. These women are representative of those who might have, or perhaps even have been, murdered in their mother`s womb, because of the horrific crime of rape. It is Naziesque, to suggest that unborn children should be murdered for any reason.
