WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's campaign says a Republican Senate candidate's comments about rape are a reminder that Mitt Romney and a GOP-led Congress would feel women shouldn't be able to make choices about their health care.
 
   Spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki says Obama finds Richard Mourdock's comments "outrageous and demeaning to women." Mourdock, who is running for Senate in Indiana, said that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape "that's something God intended."
 
   Romney is featured in a television ad supporting Mourdock. Psaki says it was "perplexing" that Romney hasn't demanded the ad be taken down.
 
   Romney's campaign says the GOP presidential nominee disagrees with Mourdock's comments.
