Jan 2, Alan Colmes made headlines by making an unseemly comment about Rick Santorum– namely, about his child who died hours after being born. Colmes used Santorum’s reaction to the death of 2 hour-old Gabriel as an example of “some of the crazy things he’s said and done.” Later Santorun spoke with Sean Hannity:
This is the problem with today’s Liberal elite, of which Alan Colmes is a product. They cannot deal with life and death issues, so they hire professionals to deal with them, Planned Parenthood for abortions, funeral homes for normal deaths, but no personal involvement. People don’t die in hospitals, since this would reflect badly on their reputation so they get shipped off to hospices to die, where they are given morphine but not the comfort of a family to comfort them in their last hours on earth. Animals get euthanized because people cannot see an animal die a natural death. In refusing to acknowledge death we are losing our ability to live, and even recognize life, such as an unborn child, full of life and vitality in the mother’s womb. Santorum did the right thing in taking the baby home for a final farewell. This reminds me of my own mother. At the age of 13 her little brother died just minutes after birth. Her own mother died a few hours later. They laid the little baby boy in a very small casket, naked. When mother saw the child she immediately went to the sowing machine, now hers, and made him a suit so he could be properly clothed for the burial. If this is insanity, give me insanity!
