Rick Santorum on Contraception: The State Can Take Your Rubber (But Not Your Gun)

Republican Rick Santorum is okay with a state enacting laws that ban, or otherwise criminalize, the use of contraception (condoms, the pill, etc.). He doesn’t believe that the use of contraception is a basic human right. As with marijuana, a state legislature should be able, if it chooses, to stop you from using, say, a rubber (or selling or purchasing birth control pills).

I’m not exaggerating his position.

Santorum calls contraception “a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

Here is Santorum saying that birth control doesn’t work and is harmful to women:

Santorum’s position is just begging for a new political lobby on the model of the National Rifle Association: the National Contraceptive Association. Its mission: to lobby for the inalienable right to own all forms of contraception. Its bumper sticker:

The pill doesn’t prevent pregnancies; people prevent pregnancies.

And:

You can have my condom when you take it from my cold, dead, eh, . . .
