    Republican Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock’s comment implying God intended women to get pregnant from rape is dominating the election discussion, much to Republican chagrin. Democrats have already spent $1.1 million on an ad in Indiana that attempts to implicate Romney, who says he disagrees with the comment, but will continue to support Mourdock for Senate. “God intended that a woman be raped and become pregnant? Even Mitt Romney and (gubernatorial hopeful) Mike Pence believe Richard Mourdock goes too far,” the ad says. President Obama also responded to the comments on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday night. “Rape is rape," Obama said. "This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women’s healthcare decisions.”
