Women conceived after rape speak out for Mourdock
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Women born as a result of rape are defending Indiana Republican Richard Mourdock in the waning days of a campaign that has been shaken up by the Senate candidate's comments on rape and abortion.
The women call Mourdock a hero for opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest in a new video from the Chicago-based One Nation Under God Foundation.
One Nation executive director Paul Caprio said Thursday the video is being spread online through social networks, but that there are no plans to air the video on TV.
Mourdock's comments in a debate last week that pregnancy resulting from rape is something "God intended" re-shaped the tight Indiana Senate race and gave Democrats a new line of criticism to use against him.
