A Few Thoughts about Rick Santorum Suspending His Campaign

Just now, Rick Santorum suspended his Presidential campaign, after a weekend at the hospital with his three year old daughter Bella. As you probably are aware, Bella was born with Trisomy 18 — a genetic disorder similar to Down syndrome that’s caused her short life to be an ongoing battle.

No matter who you support for President in 2012, you have to admire how Sen. Santorum champions life – he fights for it in Washington and he fights for it in his own home, day after day.

As he suspends his 309 day campaign, let’s honor his pro-life conviction by watching this touching campaign video. No, he doesn’t have a campaign anymore, but we’ll never stop the fight for life.

    I do admire his fight for life and I will always cheer him on.

    Thank you for posting this. I agree, Mr. Santorum has done a wonderful job of promoting the pro-life stance that he not only speaks of, but lives, every day.

    I wish there were more people like him!

    I admire his fight for life and putting his family first!

    I absolutely support his decision to be with his beautiful family. You can’t get family time back. I don’t agree with him politically at all, but the love he has for his family is real and something everyone can agree on. :)

    My daughter had trisomy 18 as well but died three days after she was born. How fortunate he is to have his daughter 3 YEARS later. WOW what a miracle! I had no idea! I am a Conservative and have kept up with many of the republican debates and yet I never knew Rick’s daughter had what my daughter had. It would be nice to have an advocate in the white house for this disease because so little can be done about it or to prevent it. I’m sad to see him go. :(

    It is a sad day for America, like you Mother, Santorum was the light for US getting back on track. I don’t think Romney will beat Obama and that is sadder. He may savc the election with Rick or West as VP.

    What a sad day! I can’t believe the best we can do is “Romney”. For the first time in my voting life.. I will not be voting in a election. I don’t see any difference in Romney and Obama. At least we know Obama is going to sink the county.. I would rather stay on a ship that I know is sinking over having a captain not be able to figure out if its sinking.

    What a beautiful tribute to one of God’s perfect creations. God knows what he’s doing. Thanks for sharing:) Sad to see him go, but proud of a man who chooses his family over status.
