Santorum and His Dead Baby- this is sick!

We received TIME magazine today, and trying to understand Rick Santorum's mindset and his voracious hatred for gay people and men and women who use contraception(which he wants to make illegal in the U.S., BTW), I read an article by Joe Klein. Joe interviewed Santorum, who shared stories about his grandfather, his religion, etc.  
- One thing that stood out is DISTURBING.
Santorum and his wife Karen lost their son Gabriel in childbirth 15 years ago. A horrible tragedy. 
 -The article says "Karen nearly died from septic shock, but she refuses to have an induced birth - an abortion, in effect. In retrospect, she admitted she wasn't thinking clearly; she had three other children at home." Sadly, Santorum wants to make that kind of abortion illegal, putting the life of the mother at risk. That's just stupid. 
*** NOW for the DISTURBING PART: "After Karen miscarried, the Santorums BROUGHT THE DEAD CHILD HOME OVERNIGHT SO THEIR OTHER CHILDREN COULD SEE THAT HE WAS "a beautiful, tiny little baby."  
 - We don't have children, but we think that's SICK. There's something mentally wrong here. His living children will ALWAYS have the mental trauma of seeing their dead newborn brother! Telling them is one thing, but bringing home the corpse of a newborn is just SICK.
  We welcome your thoughts on this.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
