Rick Santorum: “Thank God the Republican Party is Still Pro-Life”

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum promoted pro-life themes at the GOP convention Tuesday night. He brought up the moving story of his daughter Bella, who has Trisomy 18 but has been a blessing to the Santorum family.

And finally, I cradled the little, broken hands of the disabled. Hands that struggle and bring pain, hands that ennoble us and bring great joy.

They came to see us – oh did they come — when they found out Karen and I are blessed with caring for someone very special too, our Bella.

Four and a half years ago I stood over a hospital isolette staring at the tiny hands of our newborn daughter who we hoped was perfectly healthy. But Bella’s hands were just a little different – and I knew different wasn’t good news.

The doctors later told us Bella was incompatible with life and to prepare to let go. They said, even if she did survive, her disabilities would be so severe that Bella would not have a life worth living.

We didn’t let go and today Bella is full of life and she has made our lives and countless others much more worth living.

Santorum also praised the Republican Party for continuing to stand up for the pro-life position on abortion while the Democratic Party continues promoting abortion on demand.

I thank God that America still has one party that reaches out their hands in love to lift up all of God’s children – born and unborn – and says that each of us has dignity and all of us have the right to live the American Dream.

And without you America is not keeping faith with that dream.

The former Pennsylvania senator ended the night endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

We are stewards of a great inheritance. In November we have a chance to vote for life and liberty, not dependency. A vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will put our country back in the hands of leaders who understand what America can and, for the sake of our children, must be to keep the dream alive.
