Offers partial apology for controversial rape comments

|

Indiana Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock has offered a partial apology for his remarks Tuesday night that pregnancy from rape is "something that God intended to happen," after sparking a firestorm akin to Missouri Republican Todd Akin's earlier this year.

"I don't think God wants rape. I don't think he wants that at all because rape is evil," he said during a press conference Wednesday.
