Alan Colmes went lower than low with his attack on the way the Santorum family chose to mourn the loss of their baby boy; Gabriel, who died shortly after childbirth.
I personally have never lost a child, but I have watched others who have. My best friend died while we were teenagers and another woman I know lost a six week old to SIDS. Mourning a child is a deeply personal issue and how a family that is grieving that horrible loss have the right to mourn that loss in the way they feel is best for their family. Rick and Karen Santorum felt that their other children needed to be part of the process of saying goodbye to baby Gabriel. They needed to see him and have a chance to say goodbye. While it may not be the way that others would choose to handle it, it was their right as they are their children. They hurt no one else, they broke no laws and even the hospital thought it would be good for them in dealing with their grief.
What Alan Colmes is probably the most upset about is the fact that they didn't abort the child the moment they found out he wouldn't live. But of course they said that their daughter Bela, who is now two, wouldn't live either.
Any liberal who is not condemning these comments is a bad as Mr. Colmes is. Alan Colmes has no right to tell a family how to mourn the loss of a newborn baby. They said good-bye the best way they could and did what they thought was right by God and their other children.
Shame on you Mr. Colmes, shame on you.
