Santorum's wife was living with abortion clinic founder
Who also was the doctor who delivered her, when she met Rick.

:wtf:

(snip)
When she met Rick, Karen was living with Tom Allen, an OBGYN who in the early-1970s cofounded Pittsburgh's first abortion clinic. It was a somewhat unusual pairing. Allen was the doctor who delivered Karen. She began living with him while an undergraduate nursing student at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University. She was in her early 20s, he was in his 60s.

"When she moved out to go be with Rick, she told me I'd like him, that he was pro-choice and a humanist," said Allen, an elderly but vibrant man, during a brief conversation on the porch of his Pittsburgh row home. "But I don't think there's a humanist bone in that man's body."

Santorum has often said that at the time of their meeting neither he nor Karen were that devout in their faith. Upon falling in love, he says, they embarked on a soul-searching examination of their lives that brought them both closer to God.

20. Rick's 20 week-old fetus
from the Washington Post
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A61804-20...
By Mark Leibovich
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, April 18, 2005

"In his Senate office, on a shelf next to an autographed baseball, Sen. Rick Santorum keeps a framed photo of his son Gabriel Michael, the fourth of his seven children. Named for two archangels, Gabriel Michael was born prematurely, at 20 weeks, on Oct. 11, 1996, and lived two hours outside the womb.

"Upon their son's death, Rick and Karen Santorum opted not to bring his body to a funeral home. Instead, they bundled him in a blanket and drove him to Karen's parents' home in Pittsburgh. There, they spent several hours kissing and cuddling Gabriel with his three siblings, ages 6, 4 and 1 1/2. They took photos, sang lullabies in his ear and held a private Mass.

"'That's my little guy,' Santorum says, pointing to the photo of Gabriel, in which his tiny physique is framed by his father's hand. The senator often speaks of his late son in the present tense. It is a rare instance in which he talks softly.

"He and Karen brought Gabriel's body home so their children could 'absorb and understand that they had a brother,' Santorum says. 'We wanted them to see that he was real,' not an abstraction, he says. Not a 'fetus,' either, as Rick and Karen were appalled to see him described -- 'a 20-week-old fetus' -- on a hospital form. They changed the form to read '20-week-old baby.'"

15. This proves Ricky is gay...
"Upon falling in love, he says, they embarked on a soul-searching examination of their lives that brought them both closer to God".

Not normal at all. Upon my wife and I falling in love, we buggered with great frequency. Only time God was brought up was maybe to say "Oh God". ;)

8. By "living with" does she mean...
... I mean seriously. The whole thing about "she told him I'd like him" - kind of sounds like she was just in a weird roomate relationship.

Then I think I'm way too naive and that her boyfriend was the guy (40 years her senior) who delivered her?! Creepy.

24. "If you are fucking the Doctor who delivered you..."
...you might be a redneck!

(Unless you move on to marry a Republican
who is obsessed with Gay sexual practices,
and once brought a corpse home
for your children to cuddle with...)

In that case, you might be an elite member
of the "Family Values" party!
