Bella Santorum Taken to Hospital

Rick Santorum’s 3-year-old daughter, Bella, was taken to the hospital on Friday, according to his campaign spokesman. The Santorum campaign did not release any more details, except asking in a statement for “privacy and prayers as Bella works her way to recovery.” Bella has a rare genetic disorder known as trisomy 18, and she was hospitalized with pneumonia in January. Most trisomy 18 babies do not live past the first week of their lives.
