Last night Richard Mourdock, Indiana Republican Senate candidate said in a debate in front of actual people and on television that when a woman is raped and she becomes pregnant, it’s God’s plan.
So there you go, problem solved. We no longer have to pretend to make abortion a political issue. Rape and the resulting pregnancy is God’s plan. Got it.
Can’t you say the same thing about every other medical problem? Breast cancer? That’s God’s plan. It’s better not to interfere by getting treatment. Just let what’s going to happen, happen.
Personally, I think Mourdock is an idiot. It’s bad enough to actually think things like this, it’s much worse to say them aloud and in public. Considering that he’s backed by the Tea-Party, I guess it should be no surprise that he thinks and says really stupid things.
