Rick Santorum Says He'd Discourage Abortion If His Daughter Were Raped, Since Abortion Could Ruin Her Life

Rick Santorum was recently asked how he would react if his daughter were raped. This was his answer:

"I would do what every father must do. Counsel your daughter to do the right thing. You can make the argument that if she doesn't have this baby, if she kills her child, that too could ruin her life. This is not an easy choice. I understand that. As horrible as the way that son or daughter was created, it still is her child."

Let's all collectively pray for Rick Santorum's daughter, shall we? Even the atheists and agnostics among us. Pray to someone, anyone/anything. I think it's worth making an exception for the daughter of a man who seems both incredibly sure he knows what it would feel like to be pregnant with your rapist's child and equally sure that abortion is a sure-fire life-ruiner.
