Liberal Alan Colmes Attacks Rick Santorum For Bringing Home Dying Baby – UPDATE: Colmes Calls To Apologize





Appearing on Foxnews with Rich Lowery to discuss Rick Santorum’s surge, Alan Colmes suggested that republican primary voters will not vote for Rick Santorum because in 1996 when Santorum’s son Gabriel who was born with Trisomy 18, a serious genetic disorder, Santroum took the baby home just two hours after birth so his other children could see their new brother prior to his inevitable passing.

When attacked by Lowry for the cheap shot, Colmes tried to defend himself by saying this shows Santorum has a lack of character.

Watch the video:

Lack of character? THIS? The guy had a baby who was about to die and wanted to introduce it to his other children. Santorum and his wife felt that this would be the best way for him and his family to deal with this.

Alan’s problem is not that Santorum brought the baby home, his real issue with Santorum’s “lack of character” is that the Santorum’s didn’t abort the baby the easy option Colmes would have picked.

I agree with Alan on one thing. Towards the end Lowery notes that even the ‘dastardly’ people in the media wouldn’t sink so low to which Colmes responds: “I disagree”. Colmes is right on this one, the media and the Democrats would go anywhere when it comes to taking down a principled conservative.

Shame on you Alan.

UPDATED: (Via The Right Scoop)

In an interview with Sean Hannity this evening, Santorum said that Alan Colmes called him to apologize. Here is the video.

ABC News Has more:

At a Pizza Ranch restaurant in Newton, Iowa, a member of the audience asked Santorum to react to a controversial attack leveled by liberal Fox News contributor Alan Colmes, who called the Santorum family’s approach to grieving for their dead baby boy, who lived for only two hours after his birth in 1996, “crazy.”

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Colmes characterized Santorum’s decision to bring the deceased child home an example of “some of the crazy things he’s said and done.”

But in Iowa this afternoon, Santorum explained that it was important for his other children to “know they had a brother.”

Santorum’s wife, Karen, who was at the event and listened to her husband talk about the experience, began to weep.

“It’s just so inappropriate,” she said as tears streamed from her eyes.

Earlier on Monday, Colmes criticized Santorum’s handling of the death of the child, Gabriel Michael Santorum.

“Get a load of some of the crazy things he’s said and done, like taking his two-hour-old baby when it died right after child birth home and played with it so that his other children would know that the child was real,” the liberal pundit said in a Fox News interview.

In a 2005 New York Times Magazine profile by writer Mike Sokolove described how the Santorum family reacted to the tragedy: “Rick and Karen Santorum would not let the morgue take the corpse of their newborn; they slept that night in the hospital with their lifeless baby between them.”

Karen Santorum also writes on the event in her book: “‘Letters to Gabriel: The True Story of Gabriel Michael Santorum.”

     This is so bizarre. People won’t vote for Santorum but not because he wanted his family to see the baby.. which was not ‘dead’ as previously reported. It’s because Santorum is a war monger.

    Disgusting, simply disgusting!  I saw the whole thing on T.V. and could not believed my ears when I heard Alan Colmes come at Santorum with such viciousness. It is ironical that he stated Santorum has a “lack of judgment” when what Alan said shows not only viciousness but definite lack of judgment and lack of prudence.
    Thank you Mr. Lowery for defending Santorum against this “dastardly” attack.

    This proves to ME, an average VOTER, that Rick Santorum, is a man with deep family values, who wanted to share the baby boy with his siblings, and who wanted to hold his child closely, with his wife and children, and celebrate the child’s short life and grieve for him, lovingly and privately.  The hospital and nurses could do nothing for this child, so the parents chose to let him die among those who loved him.  Both my mother and my mother-in-law made this choice for themselves, when they were dying of cancer.  GOD BLESS the Santorums for making a decision based on love, not political correctness!

    POS, if I had a child that I knew was going to die, I would do the same thing. The Liberal idea would be to abort it and not even give it a chance. That’s not the way REAL people think. I would want to know my baby, even if it was only for 2 hours. I would want to see his tiny face and let it know his Mommy and Daddy loves him, even if for a short 2 hours. What kind of person, oh we know the answer to that already, would attack someone for this. A NON-HUMAN, that’s who. SMDH

    Great post.However, there is a typo: “after birth so his other children could see their new brother prior to it’s inevitable passing…”

    Should be HIS inevitable passing….=)

    And yes, liberals don’t deal well with death. It looks to me like Mr. Santorum has a healthy view of life and death. Alan Colmes is the freak in this situation.

    I don’t care what side of the “abortion argument” you fall on…

    both Santorum and his wife agreed with each other, that somehow this baby should be brought into the world…and THAT was THEIR DECISION to make…and no LAW forced them to bear that baby, OR abort it…as it is NOT A STATE’S DECISION TO MAKE FOR THAT MOTHER, or THAT FAMILY…

    …and no PUNDIT, PREACHER, or POLITICIAN (behind, in front of, or away from ANY CAMERA or MICROPHONE )should have felt they have ANY KIND OF LICENSE, to feel “worthy” or “righteous” enough, to denigrate Santorum for wanting to show his children their baby brother, before their baby brother slipped away to Jesus.

    …and no PUNDIT (et al.) should have felt they have ANY KIND of LICENSE, to feel “worthy” or “righteous” enough…to denigrate Santorum’s wife, or Santorum, should their decisions have went the OTHER WAY….  

    as it’s a PRIVATE MEDICAL DECISION…PERIOD.

    but there for the sake of politics…goes politics…like soldiers marching as to war, blindly or willingly following “orders” from somewhere “on high”, and always OVER A HIGH CLIFF to oblivion’s waiting mouth, and always threatening to take us along for the ride straight down, with politics hoping to use us to cushion its fall into oblivion’s salivating jaws…

    OK, So, it is ok to have your family together at at the hospital to see your child pass away but not at home! What is the difference? Just like abortion is ok but murdering a baby once he/she was born because you decided you didn’t want him/her any more! what’s the difference? Oh yeah, one is more justifiable in a persons mind than the other!  SHAME ON YOU ALAN! Unless you change your ways Alan, When you die, I can guarantee you will NOT hear these words from Jesus—WELL DONE FAITHFUL SERVANT! To say “Mr Santorum took the dead baby home to play with it” is just sick! just goes to show whose side your on! This world only wants to serve themselves. The words, “TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE!” is exactly that! SELF SERVICE! The ONLY commandment is I SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GOD BEFORE ME!

    I have a 4 year old daughter LIVING with Trisomy 18. Rick Santorum giving his children the chance to meet their sibling is a wonderful thing. And in the article above calling that sweet little angel and “it” disgusts me too. I’ve heard Alan Colmes spew his ignorance since I was a teenager and still can’t believe people actually listen. I’m so glad I wasn’t ignorant and closed minded and took the ‘easy’ way, I would have never known the sweetest more beautiful person I’ve even know and had the privilege to call my daughter. Life is not about the ‘easy’ way. It’s about living and being the best kind of person you can be, aborting a child because they have a genetic disorder is the most barbaric and unmoralistic thing I cam imagine. I despise Alan Colmes and am so sickened to read this.

    This is the lowest of the low!!!! I have some dear friends from church who also had a child several years ago with a trisomy abnormality. They found out just a couple of weeks before she was born about the problem, and she ended up living only about 24 hours. With very rare exceptions, these children only live for a VERY short period of time. This couple took their other children to the hospital to let them meet their sister, and the entire time this precious little girl lived, they rocked her, held her, and let her know in every way they could that she was a cherished part of them. My mother did a lot of babysitting for them at that time, so I called them at the hospital to ask if we needed to go over and take care of the other children or do anything else to help them while they were at the hospital. The father spoke with me and his spirit was just precious. He assured me that they were OK, and…I’ll never forget his words to me…he told me that “God just gave us a different kind of blessing this time.” It was heartbreaking, yet such a statement of their faith in God and His sovereign care for them, even during such a difficult time. For some despicable person like Alan Colmes to dare to question, criticize…or POLITICIZE???…the motives of a parent at such an intimate, loving time simply defies humanity!! He should be forced to recant those remarks, issue a written apology to the Santorums, and possibly lose his job for such an outrage!!!!

But you refuse to ever admit when Neo Cons show strange behavior. I really couldn’t give a damn about Santorum or his dead baby. He doesn’t have a chance of becoming president anyway.

    Okay, well health problems increase with the number of children someone has.  So I wonder why Rick Santorum decided to have so many children when this creates higher risk of health problems.  Also, there are a lot of babies left to die in this world (example: baby girls in china).  Why hasn’t Rick Santorum adopted at least one or two of these babies rather than having 7 of his own?

    Verify1, Why is it your business what a couple decides in regards to the size of their family? Why would any self-respecting liberal Democrat who supports abortion on demand in this country worry about why Santorum and his wife have not adopted children from China? And finally, what does this have to do with his qualifications to become President of the United States?
    Also. in case you haven’t heard yet, Colmes called Santorum to apologize for his ugly remark. If the culprit himself has admitted his error, why don’t you apologize for what you have stated here?
    Last time I checked wealthy Obama has not adopted anyone, from China or from America, but that has absolutely nothing to do with his qualifications as a President, right?

    First, I said nothing of abortion because it’s not related to this topic.  I also said nothing condoning the comment that Colmes made because Colmes is not running for President, Santorum is.

    The personal choices of candidates are everyone’s business, because they indicate their values, decision making abilities, and responsibleness. 

    The reason that I have not adopted “Daisytoo”, is because I am not in a financial position to adopt.  However, if you can afford to have 7 children, you clearly are.  Having two children, like Obama has, is responsible because it is possible to give them the attenion they deserve, and the risk of health problems is not increased for the children.  If someone has 7 children though, I have to wonder why some of them are not adopted.

    To have so many children, without adopting any, contradicts a desire to help impovershed children.

    I think that there should be less focus on an inappropriate comment by Colmes.

    The focus should be on choices made by Santorum that are more clearly related to his decision making abilities.  For example, how is having 7 children a responsible decision?  The risk of health defects increases dramatically, not to mention that a parent would be very challenged to devote adequate time to their children especially if so busy with a career in politics.  Also, let’s not forget the opportunity cost that is lost — he could have adopted a couple of children and saved them from poverty.

    Being black and white in your thinking is not an intellectual way to think.  It perpetuates ignorance and hate — the same fuel of racism and other forms of bigotry.  Colmes is one person and it is very silly to say that his comment represents a liberal point of view.  It represents his own thoughts.

    I think that you could better clarify the statement “liberals don’t deal well with death”.  This is a very dichotomous way of thinking.  I don’t think that more liberal views are related with feelings about death.  We (everyone) are all people with different thoughts and feelings about death.

    No one said anything about abortion.. no one said that abortion is ok.  Also, no babies were murdered in this story.  Also, where did you see of “playing with ..”  That is disturbing but I don’t see it in Alan’s remarks.

    Most importantly, doesn’t Jesus say to not judge and to love others?  Goodness you are lecturing someone and speaking for Jesus?  You are gaurenteeing what Jesus will say? That’s quite audacious.

    You made the point. Colmes did’t know what happened, he didn’t have the facts, yet he found it easy to use something like this as an attack. A persons true colors come out when they are on offense. Colmes colors came out today.

    As for the baby already bring dead, that makes Colmes comments that much worse.

    My parents had 6 children, my brother has 8, my sister has 7 I have friends who have as many as 15. I have 4. All those children are healthy, well educated and get equal attention. As far as I am aware Santorum’s children seem to be happy. The number of children a person has has nothing to do with clarity. Some people feel they can handle less and some people feel they can handle more. It’s a families decision. As long as you don’t hear that Santorum’s kids are unhappy or are abused then it’s unfair to even question it.

    As for your question why he didn’t adopt, that too is a personal decision, maybe the family feels adoption is not for them. Never judge a families private decisions before you know what’s going on.

    If you said nothing about abortion, I don’t know where I got the idea you did. Sorry.
    Since Colmes is in the public eye, he had no business attacking Santorum with his personal decisions. He did, has apologized for it, and I don’t know why he would apologize for saying something truthful and kind. Could it be because it wasn’t?
    I don’t believe I said you, personally, should adopt any children. I was merely stating that Santorum should not be criticized for that since as a Catholic he has enough children and as a Catholic who knows his faith, he does not share the Malthusian Theory most people uphold in this country.
    Neither you nor I know what the charities of the Santorum family are. It is possible they help organizations that help impoverish children. After all, social justice is also part of the teachings of Catholicism, a religion he claims to profess.
    The bottom line is simple. Alan put his foot in his mouth and thanks be to God he has apologized for it.

    Verify1 You said
    Quote “The focus should be on choices made by Santorum that are more clearly
    related to his decision making abilities.  For example, how is having 7
    children a responsible decision?  The risk of health defects increases
    dramatically, not to mention that a parent would be very challenged to
    devote adequate time to their children especially if so busy with a
    career in politics.  Also, let’s not forget the opportunity cost that is
    lost — he could have adopted a couple of children and saved them from
    poverty”
     
       So you have the right to invoke you’re ” values” onto another person.  “he could have adopted a couple of children and saved them from
    poverty” That is not what some people want. Have you? If not then enough lecturing and putting you’re values and thoughts onto another.

    As you have said  “The personal choices of candidates are everyone’s business, because they
    indicate their values, decision making abilities, and responsibleness.”

    Then why is it that if anyone asked to see  Obama’s transcripts from his college ” which Obama himself has spend tens of thousands of dollars to hide. oh I’m sorry “seal” they are “crazy” or “racist”. We are not allowed to question the legitimacy of Obama, but you will put under a microscope anyone looking to unseat him. The good old double standard of the left. look at him don’t look at us.

     Yes I do believe that liberalism is a mental disorder too.
    Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder[1] in which the individual is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity.[2] Narcissistic personality disorder is closely linked to egocentrism.

    Usually the number of children does not increase any risk directly to the child born, but rather increases the odds of some medical problem showing up. I have known many families with more than 5 children without any medical problems in the offspring. So exactly where does the cut off point begin? at number 8 or 10 or 15?

    For those who feel, as Combs does, that loving, caring for and grieving for your dead baby is somehow “crazy” or shows a “lack of character” – you might want to know that what the Santorums did was done by many, many couples and is encouraged.  Read more here:

    Like most things in medicine, things are not so black-and-white, so there is not “a cut off point”.  Every person is different and there are a lot of factors involved.  There are many cases in which many healthy children are born (ex:the duggars). However, the risk of problems increased basically because the mother’s body has been taxed so much.  This article lists several issues, such as increased risk for premature birth, nutritional depletion, and with the mother’s age increased risk of genetic abnormalities.

    http://articles.nydailynews.com/2009-12-17/entertainment/17940933_1_multiple-pregnancies-premature-baby-older-moms

    The death of the Santorums’ child was due to a genetic abnormality .. she took oxycotin in order to induce labor.  This was a necessary second trimester abortion that was performed to save the mother’s life. 
    The article below is clearly opinionated but it was the first one to come up regarding their abortion:

    I’m not sure how you can make a statement that liberals in general have a preoccupation with power prestige and vanity.

    You don’t need a microscope to wonder why Santorum opted for his wife to have an abortion to save her life, yet is “against abortion”.

    I’m not in a position to have 7 children, or to adopt.  So I haven’t.  The reason I brought it up is that he states to be very concerned with children in poverty.  So it is very interesting that none of his 7 children (that’s quite a number) are adopted.
