When Tea Party senate candidate Sharron Angle told voters in 2010 that rape victims who were impregnated as a result of sexual assault should "make lemonade" out of the situation, she was considered a radical voice among anti-choice politicians. This year, more candidates are being open about their views that abortion should never be allowed in cases of rape. Now, the only thing radical about it is declaring divine intervention when a pregnancy occurs.
Indiana senate candidate Richard Mourdock stated exactly that in his last debate, setting himself up as the most restrictive of the three candidates when it comes to allowing a woman the legal right to an abortion. Although all of last night's candidates self-identify as "pro-life," Mourdock was the sole politician to state that his opposition to abortion even applies in cases where the pregnancy is a result of sexual assault.
