Rick Santorum’s Crazed Attack on Prenatal Screening
Speaking to the Ohio Christian Alliance today, the GOP frontrunner for the presidential nomination, Rick Santorum, said that he’s opposed to requiring health insurance to cover prenatal screening.
How in the world can anyone be opposed to prenatal testing? Because, according to Santorum, it’s just another part of President Obama’s nefarious scheme to promote abortions and “cull the ranks of the disabled.”
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Campaigning in Ohio on Saturday, Rick Santorum displayed his culture-warrior side in full force, as he harshly attacked President Obama by suggesting the president wanted to see more disabled babies aborted and accusing him of projecting his values - which Santorum claimed were not rooted in the Bible - on the Catholic Church.
Santorum recalled his prominent role in the 1990s debates over the controversial procedure that critics call partial-birth abortion. He lambasted the president’s health care law requiring insurance policies to include free prenatal testing, “because free prenatal testing ends up in more abortions and therefore less care that has to be done because we cull the ranks of the disabled in our society.”
And yes, Santorum also attacked President Obama for not governing according to the Bible.
Earlier in the day, the former Pennsylvania senator charged that Obama’s agenda is “not about you … It’s about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible.”
