Video: Rick Santorum Supports States Banning Birth Control

| by Michael Allen

Rick Santorum repeated his belief that states should have the right to outlaw contraception during an interview with ABC News yesterday (video below, begins at 2:00 minute mark).

Santorum said: “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 statues they have."

Santorum has long opposed the Supreme Court’s 1965 ruling “that invalidated a Connecticut law banning contraception” and has pledged to completely defund federal funding for contraception if elected.
