Rick Santorum Hugs Dead Babies?

Santorum and his wife, Karen Garver Santorum, have seven children: Elizabeth Anne (born 1991); Richard John (“Johnny”), Jr. (born 1993); Daniel James (born 1995); Sarah Maria (born 1998); Peter Kenneth (born 1999); Patrick Francis (born 2001); and Isabella “Bella” Maria (born 2008). Bella was subsequently diagnosed with Trisomy 18, a serious genetic disorder which is fatal before birth in 90 per cent of cases.[10] In 1996, their son Gabriel Michael was born prematurely and lived for only two hours (a sonogram taken before Gabriel was born revealed that his posterior urethral valve was closed and that the prognosis for his survival was therefore poor).

Karen Santorum wrote a book about the experience: Letters to Gabriel: The True Story of Gabriel Michael Santorum.[11] In it, she writes that the couple brought the deceased infant home from the hospital and introduced the dead child to their living children as “your brother Gabriel” and slept with the body overnight before returning it to the hospital.  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.

Alright, I’m going to be the bad guy here and just say it.  What kind of fucked up  creepy-ass Pet Cemetary shit is that!?  And this motherfucker wants to run for president?   Oh, hell naw.  Are the Republicans even being serious anymore?  He brought a dead baby home from the hospital and introduced it to his children as their “brother”.    That’s seriously fucked up man. 

Moreover, how does the hospital just let you take a dead baby home?  There is seriously like 500 things wrong with that picture.  Most politicians have skeletons in their closet, I get that.  But usually it’s doing coke in college or cheating on your wife or something.  This motherfucker thinks that it’s O.K.  to introduce a dead baby to his children.  Re-read that last sentence again and think about how insane that is.  How many years of therapy do you think those kids are going to need after that shit.  Singing lullabies!?  I’ll tell you this right now, if my dad ever brought a dead baby home from the hospital, I’m getting the hell out of the house.

I know it’s sad.  And I couldn’t imagine how difficult it must be to lose a child.  But sleeping in the bed with your dead baby’s corpe is just fucked up man.  I’m sorry.  Compared to this freakshow, Sarah Palin is a Rhodes scholar.

    Losing a child is the most heartbreaking pain a parent has to endure. It’s difficult to come to terms with that kind of loss-or to even accept it at all. But bringing home a deceased child and sleeping with him is, quite frankly, macabre. It sounds like something you might expect in a Stephen King movie.
    I think the Santorum family desperately needed a grief counselor or psychologist to help them “rationally” deal with the loss.
