Santorum says he would counsel his daughters to make the best of a rape.

In case you haven’t heard the news, Republican presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, told Piers Morgan on Friday that women should accept rape babies as a gift from God, “even if given in a ‘broken’ way,” as the Huffington Post put it. Santorum believes rape victims should “make the best out of a bad situation” and that a woman who might choose to abort a fetus created as a result of rape would always know that terminated pregnancy was meant to be “her child.”

Soooooo… God makes rape happen to teach women who might abort a baby the lesson that all life has value, right? And yet Santorum believes that it’s okay to use the death penalty on prisoners. Funny. Here’s the original clip of Santorum on CNN (side note: Piers Morgan should have been in John King’s place when King asked Newt Gingrich about his open marriage policy, because Morgan isn’t afraid to do an interviewer’s dirty work and make a follow-up statement…), then enjoy Mary Birdsong of Reno 911 playing a Michele Bachmann-esque Tea Party member who has made the best of all 23 of the rapes she endured:
