Yet Another Vile Spew From The Frothy Mix His Own Bad Self

Perfectly in synch with the announcement that his web site is launching the Conservatives Unite Moneybomb, Rick Santorum has detailed his complete opposition to abortion, even in the case of rape or incest -- and, naturally, it's pure evil:
Well, you can make the argument that if she doesn’t have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life. And this is not an easy choice. I understand that. As horrible as the way that that son or daughter and son was created, it still is her child. And whether she has that child or doesn’t, it will always be her child. And she will always know that. And so to embrace her and to love her and to support her and get her through this very difficult time, I’ve always, you know, I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you. As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation. [Emphasis mine.]
A gift.

A gift bestowed upon a woman by her rapist.

Making the best of a bad situation.

Oh, and he says that “it’s not a matter of religious values” that you should accept God's loving gift of being impregnated by your rapist.

This is the closest I have come in a long time to wanting, really wanting, to commit violence upon another human being. I find myself flashing through dozens of possible, horrible things that could happen to Rick Santorum, none of which would be enough to balance the callous, soulless disregard he has for women's sexuality, choices, freedom, health, their very lives.

This man should be ashamed to show his face in public.

Instead, he's running for President of the United States.

What was that, Sinclair Lewis...?

Heh. You know, I have said this over and over... Raping a woman, then forcing her to go through with the pregnancy, makes the rapist her OWNER for 18 years...

There is no legal barricade to keep him from blocking an adoption.

There is legal precident to allow him to sue for custody, forcing her to pay child support. (Based on the woman being immoral, enough to ask to be raped of course)

There is legal precident that gives the man the legal right to force her to keep the child so that he has a legal right to always know where she lives.

He can bring her in and out of court constantly, forcing her to miss work, based on any excuse he can find, up to and including "the baby came to me in dirty underwear (because he just wet himself in the car...)"

18 years? More like for life. Most of us are lucky to have at least one parent who loves us unconditionally. FSM knows where I'd be if I didn't have mine. Imagine having to grow up knowing your mother remembers what happened to her every time she looks at you. How would you turn out?

If abortion is outlawed then we're going to see a rise in child abuse and child abandonment. Sanitorium hasn't said what he's going to do about that.
