Mourdock made the horrible mistake of telling the truth about what he believes. He actually believes that abortion is murder. And he actually believes that God creates life. …

Here’s the problem: All of these guys are anti-abortion. They believe life begins at conception. Therefore, they believe an abortion is murder. So if that’s true, how can they possibly believe it is okay to murder a fetus (a fully realized person in their eyes) simply because of the way the child was conceived? This is baffling. I admire Mourdock for telling the truth about what he believes. …

I’ll tell you what they’re upset about. They want the Republicans to win, they need the women’s vote and the country is not behind banning abortion in cases of rape or incest. In fact, the majority of voters is not against banning abortion at all. So the conscience of these convictions is based purely on politics.
