Mourdock now claims his words were "twisted". We think what's twisted is to force a woman to bear the child of violent criminal against her will. So no matter how much Mourdock wrings his hands talking about how rape is so horrible, he still is determined to force women to endure the results of that horror by the police power of the government.
And by the way, we cannot even count on him in the future honoring the one exception, life of the mother, he would allow for abortion. Because after all, for him it's just a short theological hop to the position that if the woman dies, that too is something God intended to happen. Don't you think it's time Mr. Mourdock stopped trying to tell other people what God wants, and trying to make that public policy? We do.
