Pennsylvania GOP Senate Candidate Equates Pregancy from Premarital Sex with Pregnancy from Rape

The Hill:

A second Republican Senate candidate has waded into rough waters while explaining his conservative stance on abortion.

Tom Smith, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.), said Monday that he believes in outlawing abortion, with no exception for rape victims. He then appeared to compare pregnancies from rape to pregnancies that result from consensual sex between people who are not married.

Smith was asked to explain how he would tell a victim of rape to continue with her pregnancy.
