    From the NY Times Caucus blog:

    Republicans noted that Mr. Donnelly, an Irish Catholic whose base is in South Bend, the home to University of Notre Dame, co-sponsored controversial legislation in 2011 that would have changed the federal ban on abortion funding to exempt conceptions from “forcible” rape, not just rape. The Mourdock campaign said this backing showed Mr. Donnelly believes pregnancies from statutory rape or incest should have to be carried to term.

    Mr. Donnelly had said, earlier this year, that he was not aware that Republican authors of the bill had added the “forcible” language and was glad when an outcry forced them to remove it.
