If you thought Rick Santorum was only obsessed with what goes on in gay people’s boudoirs, think again, sirs and madams. Do you know what the greatest problem facing America is? You may be surprised to find out that it’s contraception!
Rick Santorum pledged to repeal all federal funding for contraception, during a recent interview with CaffeinatedThoughts.com editor Shane Vander Hart, arguing that birth control devalues the act of procreation. “One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country,” the former Pennsylvania senator explained.
Rick Santorum will talk about the tough stuff Rick Perry won’t even touch with a ten foot cattle prod! Thank goodness we have a GOP presidential candidate who’s worried about whether couples are sticking with the rhythm method, or going off into the sinful world of condoms and birth control pills. Frothy continued:
“It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
People in the United States are having all kinds of sexy time fun, and they even have a “license” to do them! This is truly terrible. Would that we instead had a country full of whiny-faced sexually repressed scolds instead! Imagine how many wars we would start out of sheer sexual frustration. [I mean, on top of the wars neocons already start out of sheer sexual frustration.]
Think Progress points out that basically all women alive have used contraception at one point or another [they are the 99%], so I’m going to credit Santorum’s simple wingnut stupidity for this one.
