55. Unless the source of the infection, the fetus, was removed from Karen...she would likely die.

...Karen felt cramping from early labor...Santorum agreed to start his wife on intravenous antibiotics “to buy her some time"...The antibiotics brought Karen’s fever down. The doctor suggested a drug to accelerate her labor...Santorum said(,) “Karen said, `We’re not inducing labor, that’s an abortion. No way. That isn’t going to happen. I don’t care what happens.’ ”

Karen – a former neonatal intensive-care nurse – asked for something to stop the labor. Her doctors refused, Santorum recalled, citing malpractice concerns...


I can understand Karen being confused between deliberately aborting a fetus and deliberately removing the source of a lethal infection, even if she hadn't been a neonatal intensive care nurse. But what the heck was Rick thinking? The embryo wasn't going to survive no matter what, and it HAD to be removed to save his wife's life no matter what!
