Note: Mourdock's Democratic opponent is also Anti-Choice

Jim Donnelly: "I believe human life is sacred and I value it in all its forms. That is why I oppose abortion and believe that government policies should encourage life and make it easier for parents to adopt children."

Don't get too excited about flipping Lugar's seat.

1. That's too bad, but it's better than a republican teabagger.

4. Not if there are no exceptions for rape or incest. They would then be equally bad, and how could

Anyone in good conscious support someone who believes a woman who was raped must carry to term? I do not care if they have a D after there name, that,is garbage

If those are both candidates position without exceptions they are both anti- women

A Democrat must stand for at the very minimum exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the Mother, or they can go to hell to in my book

2. The question is to what degree? For rape and incest and life of the mother? If it is exactly the

Same then in my view both believe women are inferior, and in good conscience if I lived in that state I would not vote for either candidate.

However, if he at least holds those exceptions, while not ideal, do differentiate him enough that the Democrat should be voted for

5. Donnelly is fighting uphill in a very red state.


I say let him do what he has to do to get elected. The alternative is much worse.


Remember he will caucus with Dems. That keeps Mitch McConnell from being majority leader. That's a good enough reason to support him to me!



We need a big tent if we want to be a majority party.



Believe me, seeing Dick Lugar's old seat potentially go to a Dem is a big deal. Its like when Brown stole Kennedy's seat in 2010, only this time we have the advantage.


Lugar was untouchable here for nearly all of my life.

6. A lot of "democrats" think women's rights are negotiable.

Some of them will post on this thread. *sigh*

10. Donnelly also opposes abortion rights but favors exceptions for rape,

incest and to protect a woman's life.

12. Then that is a major difference. Thank-you. Even though I may disagree with his choice position,

at least I could accept those exceptions.


Anyone who would force a women who has been raped to carry to term is not part of a civilized society

16. In this case Donnely believes in exceptions for rape and incest. However, if he didn't it is not

just a single issue. It is as abhorent as racism. To force a women who has been raped to carry to term is contemptible on many levels

15. Biden says he's against abortion for religious reasons, but won't impose those on others.

 

Saying that "government policies should encourage life and make it easier to adopt children" is not the same as saying "make abortion illegal."
