GOP Candidate Creates Rape Furor

Indiana Republican Richard Mourdock, who knocked incumbent Dick Lugar out of the race in the GOP primary, created a firestorm with his remarks about rape at the general election debate last night.

I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that 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 was leading the race by 5% in a Rasmussen poll released 10 days ago.
