Indiana GOP Senate Candidate Stands by Rape Comment

By  | 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock is standing by his statement that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape "that's something God intended." He says some people have twisted his comment.

Mourdock said in a news conference Wednesday that he abhors any sexual violence and regrets it if his comment during a debate Tuesday night left another impression.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other Republicans have distanced themselves from Mourdock's stance.
