I agree with him. All children are a gift from God. I am tied of people picking which "children" are evil. How do we know, maybe God gives the gift of life when such cruelty will otherwise destroy the person. In our country the #1 medical reason people come to this country is for sex selected abortion. No not the same. But in the eyes of God, maybe it is.

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...
