According to CBSNEWS.com,

Amid ongoing controversy surrounding Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s comments about pregnancies resulting from rape, the Romney campaign said today it will stand by the candidate, even while Mitt Romney “disagrees” with him regarding abortion policy.

Mourdock, a Tea Party-backed candidate who beat longtime moderate Sen. Richard Lugar in the state’s Republican nominating contest earlier this year, came under fire from the left last night after suggesting that pregnancies resulting from rape are “something that God intended to happen.”

“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said in a Tuesday night debate with his Democratic rival, Rep. Joe Donnelly, in a debate. “And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
