Rick Santorum Pledges To Ban Government Funding Of Contraceptives, Says Sex Should Only Be For Procreation

Rick Santorum is continuing his crusade to interfere in the personal lives of women. In an interview with CaffeinatedThoughts.com editor Shane Vander Hart, Santorum pledged to ban federal funding for contraceptives because he thinks sex should only be for procreation.

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country,” the Republican Presidential candidate said. “It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. [Sex] is supposed to be within marriage. It’s supposed to be for purposes that are yes, conjugal…but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen…This is special and it needs to be seen as special.”

In other words, protected sex is bad and Rick Santorum is going to make sure everyone only has sex to make babies. This is a horrible invasion of privacy and puts women in danger since many contraceptives also prevent sexually transmitted diseases. What would stop Santorum from banning the use of contraceptives altogether?

But here’s a question I’d like to ask the former senator. If sex is just for procreation, does that mean Santorum has only had sex eight times in his life? That’s not exactly a healthy sexual relationship with the woman he’s married to. Perhaps they secretly use contraceptives? Some may think these questions are an invasion of Santorum’s privacy. But as long as Santorum continues to violate the private sex lives of millions of women and men across the country, we have the right to ask questions about his own. Fair is fair, right Rick?
