"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize, life is that gift from God, and I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape that it is something that God intended to happen". -Richard Mourdock
Here's the problem with that quote by Mr. Mourdock, it doesn't matter how much you intellectually struggle with an issue if the issue can never directly happen to you, past, present or future.
I would give Mr. Mourdock two conditional out clauses that would allow him to keep his opinion and be considered just an imbecile and not worse.
Out clause number one, If Mr. Mourdock personally stops five different rapists who are obviously about to assault a different woman, and will probably succeed because they are either bigger and stronger or perhaps because they have a knife. If Mr. Mourdock can stop those five rapists, then I would acknowledge that Mr. Mourdock has at least physically earned the right to have his schmucky opinion since he actually physically "struggled" in regard to rape and pregnancy.
The irony being that if Mr. Mourdock personally stops five rapes he might have stopped a potential pregnancy anyways, and the additional irony being that one of those five rapists probably aborts Mr. Mourdock first.
Or, out clause number two, Mr. Mourdock agrees to sign up as the first male baby transplant surrogate who will bring a baby borne out of rape to gestation inside his own body.
Please, somebody just ask Mr. Mourdock, would he be willing to ever carry a baby to term that resulted from rape if it became medically possibly.
Until then, Mr. Mourdock's mental "struggles" with physical rape and physical pregnancy are just mental masturbation.
