This is for the US Senate... what does a US Senator have to do with abortion law? Even b4 Roe V Wade many states had already legalized abortion in many cases. Abortion law belongs to the states.

Obviously, BUT IT IS STILL SUICIDE TO PUT UP CANDIDATES WHO HOLD THIS VIEW.

The tight Indiana Senate race has taken a controversial turn in the last twenty-four hours, as Republican hopeful Richard Mourdock deals with fallout from his remarks about abortion in last night’s debate. It’s the same concept that got Todd Akin in trouble: the candidate’s stance on abortion in the case of rape or incest. Pro-life Mourdock does not support an exception in either case, and his word choice in so stating has him in hot water with Democrats and even some fellows on the Right.

Unlike Akin, however, Mourdock didn’t make an offensive or outrageous claim based on junk...
