Letter: Republicans’ policies would set us backRick Berg would imprison women for life if they were raped and had an abortion. Kevin Cramer prides himself on being even more extreme.
Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock just said that a pregnancy from rape is what God intended, and no matter how Mourdock tries to spin it, this statement can only mean that the rape was intended as well. Todd Akin in Missouri thinks a woman’s body can just shut everything down when she’s “legitimately” raped.
Is this really what the Republican Party stands for now? These candidates would set us back by centuries. It’s time to stand up to this madness and keep these people out of office.
