Handling Death

Columnist Eugene Robinson, who I used to read religiously when I had a subscription to The Washngton Post, and even later, when I would buy the Sunday edition at the 38 Store, until the trucks stopped coming this far North, came in for some criticism over his handling of the death of Gabriel Santorum, and the parents response to the death of the little baby.

Also Alan Colmes.  I expected better of Mr Colmes.

Hat tip to the Instapundt.

It was a thoroughly disgusting if not reprehensible display of the nouveaux intelligentsia who regard themselves as the standard by which the world should live. Their unfeeling commentary about not only the Santorum child...but about abortion in general is, in mind, symptomatic of their own moral depravity.....and that which is growing in our society today.

Lost in all of this is the more important point, that Santorum would have us charge him and his wife with murder for such an act under his hopeful presidential administration. In addition, since most of us wouldn't take a fetal corpse home to show our kids, it's fair enough to think it weird, and, since Santorum himself put it into the public eye, fair game for pundits to offer their opinions on the act.

Privacy is a better standard to which to aspire--privacy, that families who wish to safeguard the lives of their loved ones, can make their own informed decisions on childbirth, and privacy that personal decisions on how to deal with the death of a family member should not become fodder for syndicated columnists. But since Santorum publicized it for his own gain, let's not hate too strongly those who would resist the hubris and take potshots of their own.

Really, they're all wrong, Santorum included. This isn't any of our business, except as a discussion of public policy. As such, privacy and individual liberty should be our national choice. Anything else is dangerous and portends worse.
