INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana women born as a result of rape are defending Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock in the waning days of the campaign.
They call Mourdock a hero for opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest in a new video from the Chicago-based One Nation Under God Foundation. One woman, Pam Stenzel, says she believes a child "should not be executed for the crimes of their father."
Mourdock's comments in a debate last week that pregnancy resulting from rape is something "God intended" re-shaped the tight Indiana Senate race and gave Democrats new ammunition to use against him.
One Nation executive director Paul Caprio says the video released Thursday is being spread online through social networks. The group does not formally endorse candidates.
