A man of strong religious beliefs (almost a pre-requisite if you are applying for the job) he is fervently against abortion – even if the woman is ‘with child’ as a result of being raped.
His position is that life is sacred – that children are a ‘gift’ from God, and that includes those fathered by a rapist
Which begs the question . . . are rapists actually ‘angels’ doing God’s work?
Are they God’s ‘mailmen’ – delivering his gift of a child to unsuspecting women?
Interestingly, while Santorum is against killing god’s gift when it’s in the womb (anti-abortion stance), he is apparently comfortable killing god’s gift once it is out of the womb (his pro capital punishment stance)
Perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised at God using rapists to present the gift of a child to a woman. After all, they do say he moves in mysterious ways. Equally, it seems his followers, who see no contradiction in being anti-abortion but pro capital punishment, also move in mysterious ways!
