GOP Candidates Continue Rape Tour: Romney Supports “God Intends Rape” Dick Mourdock

 

The raping of the American Dream and the citizens of this country by banksters continues, and GOP candidates still want women to bear the fruit of “legitimate rape.” Indiana candidate for US Senate Richard  Dick Mourdock said during a debate Tuesday:

I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.

Then removed his head from his ass long enough yesterday to say

I don’t think God wants rape.

and apologized to anyone who misinterpreted his original remarks.  Because  in Dick Mourdock’s world, if you you took offense at his statement that God intended you to conceive from a violent, brutal, forced sexual assault, then that’s your problem. Not his. Mourdoock’s comments on conception from rape points to a fundamental crack in the GOP platform on rape, since Missouri Representative Todd Aiken, also running this election season, thinks:

If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

Responding to Dick Mourdock’s remarks on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, President Barack Obama said:

This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women’s health care decisions. Women are capable of making these decisions in consultation with their partners, with their doctors. And for politicians to want to intrude in this stuff, oftentimes without any information, is a huge problem. And this is obviously part of what’s stake at this election.

Mitt Romney still stands behind Mourdock and continues to endorse Mourdock’s run for the US Senate. The Christian Science Monitor reports that the Republican GOP candidate is:
