rick santorum

*In an interview one year ago with CNS, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum implied that President Barack Obama should be pro-life because he’s black.

Santorum challenged Obama over the idea of personhood, which the conservative candidate said isn’t even a debatable issue. Santorum favors a constitutional ban on abortion.

He said:

“The question is … is that human life a person under the constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that human life is not a person then … I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say ‘now we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.’”

After a recent surge Santorum is now polling in third place in the presidential primary going into today’s Iowa caucuses.
