VIDEO ADDED: Santorum's Wife Says Presidential Run is God's Will

I was wondering what Dame Santorum would say when she finally spoke, and as expected, it's just generic Right Wing Stand By Your Man talking points. Only Republican Fembots would like her hubby more now after trying to destroy their rights.

Rick Santorum's wife granted a rare interview telling Glenn Beck that she initially had been against her husband running for president but finally concluded it was "God's will," the Washington Post reports.

Said Karen Santorum: "I did always feel in my heart that God had big plans for Rick. Eventually it was there, tugging at my heart. When Obamacare passed, that was it. That put the fire in my belly."

Quickie- Mr & Mrs Santorum aka Knight and Dame of Magistral Grace of the Knights of Malta

Okay. Just okay, I'll breathe now. No clue how accurate this is, can't find any hard news reports, only the wiki and some various anti Opus Dei sites. Anyone know more info? Mebbe some reporters need to ask Lil Ricky about his aspirations to the Monarchy?

Santorum traveled in 2002 to Rome to speak at a centenary celebration of the birth of Saint Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei.[123][161] He and his wife were invested as Knight and Dame of Magistral Grace of the Knights of Malta in a ceremony at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York on November 12, 2004.[162]

A CEREMONY at St Patrick's? That's like a huge deal, ammirite?

Gasp! Rick Santorum's hard-core, anti-choice wife dated, lived with an abortion provider

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

The GOP hypocrisy never stops, does it? Some of it is downright funny, some of it is utterly disgusting, and some of it is so blatant and jaw-dropping that it deserves to go viral.

Like, f'rinstance, when a presidential candidate holds himself and his family out to be the most "pro-life" family that ever existed in the history of ever, when he uses his god as a vehicle to get himself into the White House, when his holier-than-thou-itude seeps into every speech at every campaign stop, and then, after all that, we find out that his own wife was just dandy with full-on women's reproductive rights... including abortion.

In fact, she moved in with her boyfriend, Abortion Provider Tom. Yes, when that happens, it's a story that needs to be told.

Introducing Mrs. Ricky Santorum before she was Mrs. Ricky Santorum, via The Daily Beast:

Karen Santorum, the ultra-pro-life wife and mother of seven home-schooled children, has been the perfect complement to her husband, Rick, as he chases the Republican presidential nomination. On the campaign trail, the candidate often refers to her book, Letters to Gabriel, the story of the devoutly Catholic couple’s traumatic late-term 1997 miscarriage (the 20-week-old fetus lived two hours outside the womb). The couple opposes birth control as well as abortion, even in cases of rape.

But Mrs. Santorum, 51, apparently wasn’t always committed to the cause. In fact, her live-in partner through most of her 20s was Tom Allen, a Pittsburgh obstetrician and abortion provider 40 years older than she, who remains an outspoken crusader for reproductive rights and liberal ideals. Dr. Allen has known Mrs. Santorum, born Karen Garver, her entire life: he delivered her in 1960.

She was 22, he was 63. Abortion Provider Tom, who is now 92, has been an active member of the dreaded ACLU. In short, he's a dirty hippie Marxist socialist commie fascist socialist tree-hugging French Kenyan abortion-supporting, birth control-dispensing liberal.

Interesting fun fact: Allen also paid to have now-Mrs. Santorum's teeth straightened.

Karen had no problems with what I did for a living,” says Allen, who helped start one of the first hospital-sanctioned abortion clinics in Pennsylvania.

Ruh-roh! What would Ricky say? Well, nobody knows, because Team Self-Righteous refuses to comment.

Please read the whole story here.

Added: And, forgetting the whole abortion thing, where is he on the fact that his now-wife lived with a man without marrying him? Isn't that something he is adamantly against, too?
