During the “kiddie table” GOP debate on Tuesday, focused on foreign policy and the threat of domestic terrorism, Rick Santorum made a very personal remark in connection to Islamic State.

“This week ISIS put out a fatwa on disabled children and killed dozens of them because of their disability,” Santorum said in the CNN debate, as he concluded his closing statement. Watch the video clip below.

“Now, I am the father of a disabled child,” he continued, with evident emotion. “I know and have known the face of evil. And I, if you give me the opportunity, will defeat it.”

Santorum’s daughter, Bella, was born with Trisomy-18, a rare condition in which children are born with three copies of the 18th chromosome. Although approximately 90 percent of children with the condition die within the first year, Santorum told LifeSiteNews in June that Bella is doing “exceptionally well” at age seven.

The Mosul Eye reported that an ISIS Shari’a judge, Abu Said Aljazrawi, issued thefatwa to “kill newborn babies with Down’s syndrome and congenital disorders and disabled children, claiming that there have been 38 confirmed murders by lethal injection or asphyxiation.
