Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock was recently quoted at a debate, declaring that, “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen.” Mourdock has an ad that features presidential candidate, Mitt Romney and since the taboo comment, the Romney Campaign has not even asked Mourdock to take down the ad, thus leaving the public to assume that Romney supports Mourdock’s statement.

Romney is obviously pro-life, so his support doesn’t come as a surprise. Well, it’s now being reported that Romney’s pro-life with a few limitations. Earlier this week, Romney appeared in Mourdock’s ad, endorsing the senate hopeful. Here’s what Romney says in the ad:
“Richard will help stop the liberal Reid-Pelosi agenda. With so much at stake, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate.”

While Romney’s Campaign hasn’t asked that the ad be taken down, they have said that Mourdock’s views do not represent Romney’s. Well, that’s an interesting concept. Why endorse someone who’s views you don’t agree with? It seems Mourdock needed to clear the air after his rape statement and put out this statement:
”God creates life, and that was my point. God does not want rape, and by no means was I suggesting that he does. Rape is a horrible thing, and for anyone to twist my words otherwise is absurd and sick. I said life is precious. I believe life is precious. I believe rape is a brutal act. It is something that I abhor. And that anyone could come away with any meaning [other] than what I said is regrettable and for that I apologize. Anyone who goes to the video tape and views that understands fully what I meant.”
