What nonsense demagoguery. A silly strawman argument to accuse Christians of empowering rapists. I am all for rapists getting the maximum penalty under the law, and having no legal rights with regards to any offspring resulting from rape. Your attacks on men is ridiculous, to paint this as a men-vs-women issue. My wife feels just as strongly as I do, as so plenty of Conservative women......That the horrors of being pregnant as the result of rape notwithstanding, our view of this issue is about taking the life of an innocent, which compounds the tragedy of the rape. If you're for abortion, then simply state that. But leave your sophistry and ad-hominem attacks at the door. If you can't, then please exit out that door......

Sad. Just a sad worldview.

Yet it is perfectly possible for a rapist to be awarded visitation rights.

Let's stipulate that people, and particularly politicians, can get into trouble by attempting to speak for God. But that's not the moral of the story regarding Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.

Responding to a question about abortion, Mourdock offered a grieved response -- his voice breaking a bit -- on the matter of which exceptions he favored. His Democratic opponent, Joe Donnelly, also pro-life, said that he would permit abortions in cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother. Mourdock said he had "struggled with it . . . for a long time," but had come...
