Response to Arkansas Granny (Reply #14)

16. This is not a winning issue for Democrats

Don't go after someone who's lost a baby/fetus/child. It's cruel and will backfire. There are plenty of good reasons to go after Santorum, but the tragedy of this preterm birth/miscarriage/abortion is not among them.

Would a Repub stoop to using it against a Democrat? Sure, but that doesn't make it right. Do I think Santorum's a hypocrite? I sure do, but I'm not going to use this incident as an example.

I am sure that the Santorums wanted this child, and they suffered a loss. Regardless of how you think it was handled before, during, and after, it isn't grist for the political mill.
