Rick Santorum Doubles Down, Says States Have Right To Declare Birth Control Illegal (VIDEO)

Without a doubt, Rick Santorum is the most dangerous threat to women in the Republican Presidential race. He believes premarital sex should be outlawed, believes women have no right to accessible medical care, and that contraceptives should be illegal.

During an ABC interview with Jake Tapper on Monday, Santorum doubled down on his beliefs regarding contraceptives that prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, telling Tapper that states can outlaw contraceptives.

“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 statutes they have. That is the thing I have said about the activism of the Supreme Court, they are creating right, and they should be left up to the people to decide.”

As Iowans cast their primary ballots today, the women should keep in mind that if they vote for Santorum, they’ll be voting against their own rights and privacy. Most women in America have used a contraceptive method at least once in their lives. Contraceptives prevent disease and have helped slash the abortion rate. But Rick Santorum thinks men should be able to pass on disease and impregnate women at will and that women should be powerless to protect themselves. Santorum believes men like him control what women do with their bodies. That is a true violation of constitutional rights. The Supreme Court didn’t “create right.” The court ruled that women had the right to personal liberty and privacy like everyone else. Those rights were already in the Constitution.

Santorum is the kind of man who thinks women should be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen and that’s it. He’s the kind of man who thinks women should be submissive to men. You know, a Neanderthal.
