Last Thursday, former Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senator Rick Santorum reminded East Tennessee pro-lifers what is important
Santorum pointed to his youngest child, Bella, as the classic example of the anti-life attitude currently seeming to sweep the medical profession. Bella was born with an extremely rare genetic condition called Trisomy 18, the presence of an extra 18th chromosome-something which normally kills the children who are born with it from the lack of ability to breathe. At the time that Bella was born, the Santorums were told by the attending doctor before taking Bella home that they must "learn to let go." The Santorums' regular doctor discovered that the prescription this doctor had written for Bella was three times the amount that she should have been getting during a wellness exam for Bella. Fortunately, Karen Santorum never had that prescription filled.
