Liberal Web Site Lies: Claims Santorum's Wife Had Abortion

The liberal, pro-abortion web site Jezebel, which recently named as its woman of the year an abortion practitioner who injured a woman in a botched abortion, is now making false claims that Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum's wife had an abortion.

And -— so what if she did?
Many prolife leaders are people who have changed their minds, on the subject!

Well, with 7 kids, and only having sex to procreate, I can see how this rumor got started.

This may be referring to a D&C(-type) operation that is often done after a miscarriage / very premature birth. (Speaking from experience, sad to say.) The docs sometimes believe it best to go in and clean up a little. :( Of course, that is not an “abortion.”

To be fair, wasn't it a 'forced early labor'? That may not be a technical 'abortion', but the effective outcome was the same.

So I have to ask—for sake of evaluating the consistency of Rick Santorum's positions on life—is this an exception he would allow others to pursue?

I’d call them hypocrites, but that wouldn’t be true.

They’d be hypocrites if they truly believed the issue was a private one between the woman and her doctor, as they claim to believe.

They aren’t hypocrites because their actual agenda is to advance communism, advance the power of the state and to destroy the family. Anything is fair game.

GEEEezus H Keeerist, a D&C is not an abortion and no one needs an exception to have one.

Santorum is standing in a crap storm because he is getting ready to lead in the Republican race.

No wonder decent people don’t want to run for President.

If the libtards were to learn that Moochelle had undergone a D&C to scrape out whatever was in her uterus, they would celebrate it as an 'expression of personal choice'.

No - when her temperature shot up to 105 she went into labor.
The doctor administered pitocin to speed up delivery.
This is not an abortion.

In a “proper” abortion at 20 weeks - the baby dies within the womb and comes out in pieces, and in most cases it is performed because the mother has become inconvenienced by the pregnancy.

It make more sense that a family who has had 7 children is very likely to be pro-life.

Santorum is toast, if he allows his campaign to be dragged into the abortion quagmire. The left knows it, and Santorum’s people should have been prepared to move the campaign on. He should say, “Yeah, I’m pro life. I’m proud of being pro life. That isn’t going to change. This nation is 16 trillion in debt, with more on the way. I’m going to talk about things we can change?”

The underlying assumption is that the Santorums would consider abortion to be an acceptable form of birth control.

This is not likely.

Apparently D&C is a kind of abortion

Santorum is standing in a crap storm because he is getting ready to lead in the Republican race.

Well, it's probably not entirely Santorum's fault that the narrative promulgated about him attests to him being the perfect social conservative messiah. But this is the sort of crap we can expect so long as he's high in the polls and if he becomes nominee, so we might as well have arguments prepared for it.

There is no inconsistency.

Her temp shot up to 105 - she went into labor.
Pitocin was administered to speed up labor.

Prolifers do not believe a mother has to die - despite what pro-choicers say.

So.. if she did, it doesn't matter. What goes on between two adults with ABORTION (which I oppose) is between them and their doctors.

Yes, because Santorum is opposed to non-procreative sex, as per an earlier FR thread. Apparently, he only has sex when he wants another child.

I’m calling bs on that assertion.

The catholic teaching is that the sexual act is composed of 2 elements...the procreative and the unitive (the “fun” part...forming a bond between the 2)
The teaching states that it is wrong to separate either of these components, either by removing the procreative (artificial birth control) or the unitive (procreating in a petri dish)

Anyways...your statement still lacks logic.
If it were true that Rick will only have sex when he wants to procreate....why does this rumor make any sense whatsoever?

Are you saying he wanted to procreate and then changed his mind?

You later stated that maybe he just wanted to have fun afterall?

which is it?

OK, I’m just going by what I read here on FR, ie the thread about Santorum and contraception.

Did I say the rumor made sense. or that I could understand how it may have gotten started?

As I stated earlier, I have no idea what happened or why, I comment on what I read, not on why people do or say.

Please call bs on anything you want, I’m not asserting anything.

No, that's not what that means. It means you have all the sex you want, and you happily accept all of the Children that may result from it.

When the media lies about conservatives, it’s because it’s the Stalinist/Alinsky way.

When conservatives expose the Left, it’s a dirty trick, a smear, and an avoidance of the issues.

Don’t even go there (being against birth control) in the context of a presidential campaign. This is not the time or place for such nonsense. If santorum or any candidate brings it up they will be laughed off the stage.

Let me clarify so I don’t derail the thread. Of course birth control is personally important to catholics. no disrespect intended. What I mean is we can’t fall into liberal traps and have our candidate get sidetracked with these sidebars that have no relevance on the public debate.

You have misunderstood the purpose of my post.

Santorum’s position had been mischaracterized.
I was making a clarification.
I was not attempting to claim this should be a part of the campaign.

Whether you like it or not - the enemy is going to “go there” because there are 2 catholics in this race.
We have FReepers spouting this nonsense too.

Santorum us entitled to his personal beliefs - just as any american is as well.

The ignorance regarding the death of his son, and his catholicism is astounding.

Under Catholic teaching around medical ethics, a woman is not required to deny treatment that might indirectly effect the child.

For example. A pregnant woman with cancer may get chemotherapy. An expectant mother with a life threatening infection may take antibiotics.

What is an abject evil is to terminate the pregnancy directly.

The lavender mafia has had it in for Santorum since he spoke out about the slippery slope in the wake of the Lawrence v. Texas decision.

There IS a homosexual agenda. California now REQUIRES all California public school screwdents down to Kindergarten to learn about gay history. It’s a litmus test that excludes history books, such as Bill Bennett’s, because they do not include passages devoted to the special contributions of extrasexular Americans.

And it is not “controversial” to draw analogies between homosexuality and bestiality, the US military permits bestiality ALONG WITH homosexuality now, both restrictions were recently lifted. And look at the angry gaystapo agents against polygamy (for now). They say that is not a real marriage. In who’s eyes?
