Santorum Has New Rumors

Basically, if you're reading something quite spectacularly hypocritical about him it is probably not true. Here is Project Vote Smart's transcript of Terry Gross' 2004 interview in which he describes the events in question.


It's later in the interview; searching on "wife" gets you right to it.

I had actually heard this story about the Santorums before, in a context in which purportedly liberal people were freaking out that they had brought the body home and went through a mourning process. I was somewhat offended that anyone would mock an approach that struck me as sensitive and respectful of the shock associated with a late miscarriage/perinatal death. It is not helpful to a family to sort of pretend it didn't happen. There are a lot of ways to deal with this shock and the one chosen by the Santorums deserves respect.

Unlike their politics.
