The Obama campaign and all the media that is controlled by Obama are trying to make an issue that isn't there. No major republican is calling for a ban on birth control. Anything is better than running on his record.

But it's a fact that Santorum said he thinks states should have the right to ban birth control. The year is 2012, not 1300. It's looney to try to make that an issue in this day and age.

Some people need to turn off the fox and actually educate themselves on the issues.

Running against his competition comes to mind.

Of course, that would be true in any situation.

The OP took offense in the other thread about this issue, so ran over here and started this thread as some sort of rebuttal.
Why, I am sure I dont know.

Santorum never said that. he said that a state can make ANY statute that it wants. The interviewer was using birth control as an example. He was not endorsing the idea

States could ban the sponsoring of birth control through government and states I imagine could ban the state funding of abortion; but nobody is going to ban control products, especially the condoms that don't cause cancer vs. steroids.
