Cher Lashes Out At Sharron Angle Over Anti-Abortion Comments

Cher took to Twitter to lash out at former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle on the issue of abortion Thursday.

Angle, who made an unsuccessful bid against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last election cycle, sparked controversy with remarks she made while defining her pro-life stance. HuffPost's Sam Stein reported on what she said in 2010:

In a radio interview Angle did in late June [of 2010], the Tea Party favorite re-affirmed her pro-life sensibilities (rigid, as they are, even within Republican circles), when she insisted that a young girl raped by her father should know that "two wrongs don't make a right." Much good can come from a horrific situation like that, Angle added. Lemons can be made into lemonade.

Here's what Cher had to say on Twitter early Thursday morning:

The harsh words from Cher come on the heels of Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock drawing intense criticism from both sides of the aisle by saying pregnancy resulting from rape is "something God intended."
