74. You know, I understand where you're coming from
I had an ectopic pregnancy myself a few years ago. It hardly seems real to be pregnant one day and the next to not be (in my case, it was medically more complicated than that, but you get my drift). For someone with a more advanced pregnancy, the chance to actually say a physical good-bye must be very important. However, I feel that Santorum's case goes beyond this. What bothers me deeply is that he was allowed to remove the body from the hospital and take it home for awhile. I have to wonder if that is, indeed, part of the normal grief counseling procedure or a special favor extended to a Senator. And I question exposing small children to a corpse for an extended period of time.
