    look, I am not "dancing with glee" about the Santorum's unfortunate experience but we are all acting like "abortion" is a bad word.  We shouldn't be...it's not.

    Even if it was spontaneous and natural, this was an abortion by definition.  A miscarriage IS an abortion, whether it was helped along or not.

    abor·tion noun ə-ˈbȯr-shən\
    Definition of ABORTION
    1: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: as

    a : spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation — compare miscarriage

    b : induced expulsion of a human fetus

    c : expulsion of a fetus by a domestic animal often due to infection at any time before completion of pregnancy
