Before Karen Met Rick

Rick Santorum and his wife Karen both oppose birth control as well as abortion, even in cases of rape. But Newsweek reports Mrs. Santorum wasn't always as committed to the anti-abortion cause.

"In fact, her live-in partner through most of her 20s was Tom Allen, a Pittsburgh obstetrician and abortion provider 40 years older than she, who remains an outspoken crusader for reproductive rights and liberal ideals. Dr. Allen has known Mrs. Santorum, born Karen Garver, her entire life: he delivered her in 1960."
