    On National Review, it appears that Mourdocks comment's weren't really that offensive:

    Mourdock’s comment didn’t get into whether rapes could be illegitimate (instead calling rape a “horrible situation”), nor did he claim that biologically, raped women were very, very unlikely to become pregnant. Instead he, sounding very emotional, talked about a child being a product of rape but also a product of God’s grace. Again, I don’t think it was helpful for him to speculate on that. But it wasn’t equal to Akin’s remark.
