    Santorum opposes abortion ``except in the cases of rape, incest or [to save] the life of the mother.'' He believes Roe v. Wade should be reversed so that states could regulate and restrict abortion, and opposes public funding of abortion.

    In the interview, the senator said that his wife's experience reinforced rather than altered his views about abortion.

    ``I'm not suggesting that abortion is never medically called for to save the life of the mother,'' he said. ``But my son's fetal abnormality was never a threat to Karen. You don't abandon him because there's something wrong with him.''

    I guess in 1997 it wasn't hypocritical for him to support abortion to save the life of the mother. Sigh.
