Rick Santorum has quite a habit of saying offensive things about women, their health concerns, and their control over their own bodies.
He has stated his position on contraceptives- he’s against them.
His position on abortion is clear, too. He’s for banning it completely, even in the instance of rape. He considers a pregnancy that is the result of a rape to be a “blessing,” a turn-lemons-into-lemonades scenario.
His latest statements are yet more out of touch.
Rick Santorum has expressed his belief that prenatal care should not be required for employee health plans. Why? Because according to Santorum, prenatal care leads to abortions.
That’s right. Rick Santorum thinks that women should have no access to medication to keep them from getting pregnant. No right to terminate a pregnancy, even if they’ve been raped. And no access to the care that would show them if they or their baby’s life were in danger once they DID become pregnant.
In short, he wants women helpless and powerless in their own reproductive life. I imagine “terrified” is also a goal, if women are constantly terrified they might have an easier time holding that aspirin between their knees.
Welcome back to the 19th century, home of Rick Santorum.
