Our Abortion Was Different: When the Anti-Choice Choose — Rick Santorum is the face of the profound hypocrisy and inhumaneness of the forced pregnancy movement. Something much like this happened in my life years ago, and all the happy Christianist baby-savers out there hadmade it difficult for my wife to find a hospital that would perform a DNC to remove our nonviable fetus from her body when it would not spontaneously miscarry. Because it's an abortion procedure, and all abortions are evil. So to all you right-to-lifers who are so certain you have the moral answers, I offer a big hearty "fuck you", and refer you to candidate Santorum and his wife, who oppose all abortions except their own. The real world isn't simple as your cartoon theology tells you.
