More on Santorum and the Dead Fetus

I was wondering exactly how old Rick “Frothy” Santorum’s children were when he and his wife Karen brought their dead fetus home for the other children to meet in 1996.  Their older children were born in 1991, 1993, and 1995, so we’re talking about showing a dead, twenty-week fetus to children who were approximately 5, 3, and 1, and telling them that this is their baby brother.

Also, if you Google “Karen Santorum, abortion,” you get conflicting accounts of whether what she had was really a second-trimester abortion.  She was clearly desperately ill from an infection and at risk of death.  But Rick Santorum doesn’t believe in abortion even to save the life of the mother.  It does seem clear that she agreed to Oxytocin, which gets contractions going.  As a nurse, she had to know that the Oxytocin would push the fetus out and that, at twenty weeks, it couldn’t possibly survive.
