Response to Arkansas Granny (Reply #41)

46. I think the Santorum's "fashioning" of the story is what is questionable here.

I also agree with you that it is not something that liberals should making an issue of. But can we not present the obvious twisting of the story, in and of itself showing a form of cynicism on the part of the Santorums? We don't have to make any editorial comments. Just present the story. Let people decide what they think about this.

That the Santorums experienced grief at the loss of a wanted child is not the issue. That they themselves seek to "rework" the narrative for political purposes is most certainly an issue, IMO.

What I think we liberals should do is to point out stories of women and their families in similar circumstances where they were denied the very outcome that Karen Santorum was given. That is unfair and most people would call it unfair. Talk about the sanctity of the family!
