Santorum: Doctors Providing Abortions To Rape And Incest Victims Should Be Criminally Charged

Reminding us again why he’s a frothy mix of lube and fecal matter:

QUESTION: Do you believe that there should be any legal exceptions for rape or incest when it comes to abortion?

SANTORUM: I believe that life begins at conception, and that that life should be guaranteed under the Constitution. That is a person.

QUESTION: So even in the case of rape or incest, that would be taking a life?

SANTORUM: That would be taking a life, and I believe that any doctor that performs an abortion, I would advocate that any doctor that performs an abortion, should be criminally charged for doing so.

  1. Not being an American, does any of these morons (Santorum, Palin etc) have any chance in the 2012 elections? Is there a serious Republican contender out there?

  2. He just charged over the cliff with his flag flying high. An abortion absolutist has no chance of being either nominated or elected. If he were more circumspect he’d be more electable. I think he’s running at the behest of the GOP who wants him out there as the “no compromises” wingnut candidate so that whomever they nominate looks sane by comparison. Then when he bows out he throws whatever wingnut vote he brings to the nominee

  3. Whatever – 27% of the voting public is batshit insane. There are a lot of reasons, whites who fear people of color, poor who think ‘whats good for business is good for the US’ and a sewage broth of religious bigots who fear gays, abortion and gun control. These people would vote for Hitler or Stalin if they ran as a modern Republican. These people control the Party selection process & their millionaire overlords have to play to them now. Its the only way they can get complete control of the financial infrastructure of the US.

    No normal person could get the nomination of the Rs in 2012, but that does not mean the R’s can’t win. They have done an excellent job of torpedoing the recovery, with a big hand from Obama and the Dem who Blew Dogs. So it is quite possible our next President will be as stupid as Palin or as evil as Pawlenty or a combination of the two like Bush

  4. Ever notice how it’s always MEN who are so very opposed to abortion for any reason? If they could get pregnant, you’d see a 180 turn around.

  5. I was the result of rape. I’m doing pretty well, in my 40’s. Have 4 kids, pretty good life, not a criminal. I’m pretty glad no-one cut me out of the womb and binned me.

    1. I think you’re missing the point. It’s about women being able to CHOSE what they want and not have to suffer the consequences of rules passed down by ignorant bible-thumping shit-weasels. If your mother had desperately wanted an abortion but was not given that option then it’s possible that your life would not have turned out so well.

  6. Rape is by definition non-consensual. It’s always bad.
    But what’s wrong with (consentual and adult) incest?
    This is a serious question.
