Ind. GOP Senate candidate stands by rape comment

Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Murdock said today that he stands by his statement that when a woman becomes pregnant during rape “that’s something God intended.” He says some people have twisted the meaning of his comment and that he abhors any sexual violence. He said he firmly believes all life is precious and that he abhors violence of any kind. "I spoke from my heart. And speaking from my heart, speaking from the deepest level of my faith, I would not apologize. I would be less than faithful if I said anything other than life is precious, I believe it's a gift from god," Mourdock said. Mitt Romney and other Republicans have distanced themselves from Murdock’s stance. (Source)
