How could having an abortion after being raped be any more emotionally traumatizing/scarring for a woman than knowing you're carrying your rapist's baby and, more importantly, that that same person that raped you is now "linked" with you vis a vis the child for the rest of your life? Santorum obviously doesn't understand the wider implications of what he is saying. There's more involved with having children than just gestating them in a woman's body and delivering them but I'm sure that people like Santorum are either unwilling and/or unable to understand it.
