    This is such a perfect opportunity for Democrats to make a central point. Not to call Mourdock the twit he is, but to shine a light on what 'choice' is and what abortion issue actually is.

    It's absolutely fine if Mourdock believes a conception after rape is God's plan. But some people may have different beliefs. This is what choice is and why it matters. It is the crux of the matter. We don't force everyone to adhere to the same religious beliefs. Someone else may believe it's God's plan to terminate the pregnancy. Someone else may not invoke God at all.

    And God's will? Then let God deal with the person. Is it a function of the state to enforce God's will (as determined by politicians)? This is a decision that a woman can make on her own, seeking the advice of whomever she chooses; family, clergy, doctor, higher power, clairvoyant. It is an issue of personal belief and personal choice.
