He needs to stifle it or we are going to lose another Senate seat.

Why should he "stifle it" Michelle Obama in 2004 sent out a letter to donors for then candidate Obama supporting Late Term Abortion. We find this acceptable? Nobody dares talk about Pres. Obamas extreme stance on Abortion. But if we take a stand for Life we are extreme. I applaud him, this took great courage. But the murder of an unborn child isn't. If we keep it simple, in a third world country "social issues" don't matter, children die of starvation and disease.

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...
