An Abundance of Santorum

(Posted by Jocelyn)

Boy, Santorum has been everywhere these days: on Rush Limbaugh's radio show talking about how global warming is a liberal conspiracy, on CNN backing a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. . . .

None of this is particularly shocking. It's all just what we've come to expect from Old Frothy. In fact, I didn't think I could be shocked by anything he said anymore. But then he said this:


What the literal fuck?

I'm sorry; I shouldn't swear. This is a classy blog.

But, WHAT THE LITERAL FUCK?!

Attempting to ban abortion is one thing, but claiming that the health of the mother is a "phony exception" is shocking. It's shocking. I'm shocked.

There are, in fact, several health-related situations where abortion is medically necessary. If a woman is diabetic and does not have adequate health insurance, she may be unable to keep her blood sugar at an optimum level, which drastically increases the risk of fatal heath problems for the fetus and herself. Is abortion, then, not an option in her case? If a woman develops a fast-acting cancer during or before her pregnancy, she may need radiation immediately in order to save her life. That same radiation, however, is very dangerous for the fetus. Is abortion, then, not an option in her case? If an 80-lb 9-year-old girl is impregnated with twins by her stepfather, then doctors may deem that the dual pregnancy poses a serious risk to her small frame. Is abortion not an option in her case?

There are many more valid medical reasons to obtain an abortion. Some of them are rare, granted, but none of them are phony. In fact the only thing that's phony here is the idea that Rick Santorum might actually get elected.

  1. I promise you (as a labor and delivery RN) that those situations do happen, and have been involved in terminations to save a mom's life. No, it didn't happen often but it did happen. And after the mom's organs started to fail from pregnancy-induced hypertension, and we did not intervene, how well do you think those fetuses would have fared?

    Since Bush II, "I'm shocked" has lost it's strength. Personally, I'm Gobsmacked by the way the press and 'serious people' in Washington D.C. keep moving the Overton window on us.

  3. All of you liberals would understand better if you could just see the basis of his argument. See, If you just understood that women don't have any actual value then you'd see why the "health of the mother" exception is clearly a phony exception because fetuses have value and women don't. See? It's simple.

    BTW, for those of you who are satirically impaired I'm just kidding. Please don't hurt me.

  4. Hmmm... so abortion will be banned, including for medical reasons. When will politicians learn that prohibition does not work, for anything, period. Banning abortions will only succeed in creating an abortion black market...and that is a scary thought. Mr. Santorum seems gleefully ignorant of this fact. I believe pro-lifers to be highly contentious as it is, but this is ridiculous.
