Rick Santorum Says States Should Have The Right To Outlaw Birth Control

Rick Santorum is on a roll. He reiterated his belief that states should have the right to outlaw contraception. He reiterated his stance during an interview with ABC News Monday, saying, “The state has a right to do that, I have never questioned that the state has a right to do that. It is not a constitutional right, the state has the right to pass whatever statues they have,” Think Progress reports.

Rick Santorum, who singled out blacks who rely on entitlement programs, is very dangerous for this country, so I don’t know why people are throwing money at his campaign, when he’s only playing to the social evangelicals in this country. An overwhelming majority of women in this country between the ages of 15-44 have used some type of birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies and limit the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases or STDs.

Unlike the Duggar family, many women don’t want to keep having kids one after the other. So, if states were to outlaw contraceptives, the rates of abortion will rise, particularly among poor women and teens. The last time I checked, Rick Santorum has the means to continue impregnating his wife at the drop of a hat. Most families can barely make ends meet, much less bringing another child into the world.

    Santorum wants a theocracy that is Evangelical.  Unfortunately, along with Bachman, he is an illiterate and ignorant boob who signed a pledge to never say that sexual orientation has a biological origin and is purely choice.  Thousands of scientific articles prove that most homosexuality is the result of neurological differences usually caused during fetal development.  In fact, the Germans assure some females will develop to appear and act as males.  By injecting an anti-androgen, they are forced to become totally female both in terms of outer morphology and brain sex.  There is also brain surgery that has been used to change homosexuals to heterosexuals and heterosexuals who have become spontaneously homosexual after a viral attack on the sex behavior center (Kluver-Bucey Syndrome), etc., etc.  For a full paper with over 450 references email dr.murphy @att.net.

    Santorum, like most Republicans, have decided that science is not to be trusted and the Bible is a biology text.
