Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock says pregnancies resulting from rape are a gift from god. And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen Mourdock’s position is the exact same as Paul Ryan’s, and it’s also the same as the Republican
party’s platform Do believe the Supreme Court should overturn Roe v Wade? Yes. I do What about in the case of rape? Should it be legal or not? From what I understand from doctors that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. Paul Ryan, along with Atkin, cosponsored the Sanctity of Human Life Act. It’s a so called personhood amendment.
He do so as recently as 2011 Now that bill made no exceptions for rape, or incest, or anything else. A record that includes votes to prohibit abortions for women who have been raped or are victims of incest. I am proud of my pro life record And, I stand by my pro life record in congress, it’s something I’m proud of. Would you have supported a constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception? Absolutely. There is no such exception as life of the mother. And, as far as health of the mother, same thing. Some women across Virginia are outraged as Governor Bob McDonald signs that controversial bill requiring women seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound Why on earth are we giving 363 million dollars in taxpayer funds to planned parenthood?
On coal, when Governor Romney came out and said, I’m really in favor of much more coal production
I will defund planned parenthood
Planned parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that
Even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen
Romney actually just put an ad up endorsing Mourdock and tried to get people out to vote for him
This fall, I’m supporting Richard Mourdock for Senate
He is not going to pull his support for Mourdock
