I love this article. It is so well written. When I heard Santorum say these things, I taught I heard wrong which is why I googled this and came across your page. I don't have any kids but I have so much respect for my mother and women who has kid and work. I believe that working women especially those who have kids are working out of necessity and not only because they want to. My mom told me she worked a part-time job making only $8.50 so I could join the track and swim team because most of my dad check went to other bills. I really hope Santorum or some of his aids sees your article and can get insight because his views are just out dated and wrong. I know it must be difficult for working women because working full time and going to school full time is hard and I couldn't image putting a child in the mix. Like I said I love this article and your page. Please keep writing and I will keep reading.

Wow, I am impressed that a politician is willing to take such an unpopular view. Especially since 70% of mothers work, and no matter what the reasons, we all feel very strongly about it. Maybe his point of view will appeal to stay at home moms who don't feel valued by society. As for me, I think us working moms have a huge burden of unnecessary guilt dumped on us already, and the last thing we need is a public declaration that we are not worth supporting. :-(

Orlando Divorce Attorney

I believe that Rick Santorum is bad for marriage. I predict that if elected, divorce would increase by at-least 15%. When going through a divorce I have found that it is best to hire an aggressive attorney. Here in the Orlando, Florida area it is very competitive in regards to Family Law. Santorum is sure to bring business to the Central Florida, in the form of divorce legalities.

Rick Santorum is the misogynist! Honestly, I love my daughter and I'm glad I had her - but I have responsibilities to the "me" that will still be around (hopefully) long after she is no longer my direct responsibility. Women are not simply wombs walking around, dabbling in hobbies, waiting for the childbearing years to come along and 'make them whole'. That retrograde, religious-sponsored type thinking will do nothing to secure the place of many people in our current environment. If individuals indeed feel that way, so be it. But to know someone looking to be put in charge of public policy on the highest level feels this strongly about it? Well, let's just say sometimes I understand where the 'why bother voting' crowd gets it's opinions.
