Yesterday, U.S Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said democrats "distorted" his "pregnancies from rape are something God intended to happen" comments. Here's what The Huffington Post wrote about it. It's really easy for people like Mourdock to blame others for the words that come out of his mouth. He said democrats twisted his words to dimish him politically. But shortly after, the Democratic National Committeeposted videos of him saying those comments.
GOP candidates need to shut their mouths about rape already, especially when defending their anti-abortion views. It is simply offensive to hear this idiocy. Remember U.S. Congressman Todd Akin, and his enlightening revelation that we, women, can shut down our bodies to avoid pregnancies after being raped?
Every day it becomes more obvious to me that GOP candidates (including GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney) are clueless when it comes to women's issues and women's rights.
