UPDATE: Rick Santorum Responds to Brody File on Comment About President Obama's Race and Abortion

01-20-2011

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: RICK SANTORUM HAS JUST SENT THE BRODY FILE A STATEMENT ON THE STORY BELOW:

Rick Santorum: “For decades certain human beings were wrongly treated as property and denied liberty in America because they were not considered persons under the constitution.  Today other human beings, the unborn of all races, are also wrongly treated as property and denied the right to life for the same reason; because they are not considered persons under the constitution. I am disappointed that President Obama, who rightfully fights for civil rights, refuses to recognize the civil rights of the unborn in this country."

Abortion is a toxic subject. Race is a toxic subject. And soon to be GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum just took the plunge into both of those areas. Watch the video below as he talks about Barack Obama and abortion during an interview with CNS News. The transcription follows:

Rick Santorum: "The question is, and this is what Barack Obama didn't want to answer -- is that human life a person under the constitution?" and Barack Obama says no. Well if that human life is not a person, then I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say 'now we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.”

Love him or hate him, let’s be clear about Rick Santorum. He doesn’t hold back. He doesn’t mince words and conservative Christians and Catholics find this quality to be his best attribute. If and when he dives into the 2012 GOP mosh pit, he’s going to be the guy that won’t hold back and in the process he’ll put some of these other 2012 contenders on the spot by bringing up issues that everybody whispers about but rarely talks about in public.
