WTF?! Rick Santorum Compares Abortion To Slavery!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooBaby BlabberPolitik

Does Rick Santorum know what comes out of his mouth? Or does he just tune in and out?

Check out this 2005 interview of the then-Senator of Pennsylvania (above), in which he was attacked for comparing abortion to slavery.

In an interview with CNN, had a chance to clarify his remarks…but he just reinforces them!

Abortion and slavery are two different matters entirely. To try and stretch them to somehow fit together is complete bullshiz.

Thoughts?

    He's drawing a conceptual analogy. Is it a stretch? Sure it is, because this comparison isn't apples to apples; but the thread of his logic is understandable. I see what he's trying to express.



  2. 2

    You know, Perez, you and other gay activists compare their struggle to slavery.
    Dumbass.

    Abortion is ending ones life
    Slavery is controlling someone's life
    I think he's saying you have a right to a life and live it your own way
    Everyone has the right to live, tell this to pro choice groups



  7. 7

    Wonder how these rich white men would feel if they were forced to spend their trust funds in the way poor black women would feel is morally correct. Sounds crazy to let someone tell you how to spend your own money, yet we're supposed to let these foolish men force their ideals on our own bodies. I'm no slave to the GOP, Tea Party or any other white male corporate oppressors…SANTORUM is the slave!

    Re: HAWTSTUFF – By your train of thought, the parasitic twin living inside a person has a right to live. Guess you're not a fan of stem cell research either, even though it has the potential to save the lives of ACTUAL people who walk the earth. There are places where a woman's reproductive rights are regulated: Iran and China are two.

    Re: highboo – With you Highboo, I am so sick and tired of right wing Christians and old, white males imposing their personal beliefs on women. If you do not want to have an abortion do not have one…simple BTW the "thread of his logic" is ridiculous. A person is an entity that breathes air independent of another. To compare a fetus without a spinal cord or brain to a living breathing human being "owned" by another is disgusting.



  10. 10

    Someone correct me if I'm correct, but the Founding Fathers based this country on separation of church and state, amiright? So why is this even a debate? If you don't want to get an abortion or if you do, that's YOUR business. It doesn't make sense for Republicans to say they don't want big government, and then turn around to say government should legislate what a woman can do to her body. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – This isn't necessarily a religious issue. This is about each person's definition of when life begins. Some believe it begins at the moment of conception, others believe it begins at birth. Pro-choicers believe that "it's my body and no one can tell me what to do with it", while pro-lifers believe that "yeah, agree with you. It's your body so go ahead and tan it, exercise it, tattoo it, pierce it, put makeup on it, make it fat, make it skinny, etc. But we're not talking about what you're doing with your body … we're talking about what you're doing to someone else's body, rudimentary as it may be." Not a religious issue for many people.



  12. 12

    I understand what he is saying, but if you aren't pro-life then you won't agree. He doesn't believe a child in the womb is property, no matter at what stage of pregnancy including conception. The child is a person and therefore should have the right to life like everyone else.



  13. 13

    Forgot to add that because that law considers a child in the womb property, and that an enslaved person is also considered property, therein lies the comparison he made.

    Kind of like comparing the quest for gay marriage to the civil rights movement…

    So, what you're saying is, “I don’t want any stupid ass stinkin' Republicans telling me what to do with my body, but, I’ll gladly bend over and do whatevah I’m told, if they’re Democrat Lefty Big Governemnt foolish men regulating my body when Obamacare is here?
    -
    If Lefty’s didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all.
    -
    BIG GOVERNMENT’S FOOLISH MEN, will force their ideals, rules, regulations and budget on your bodies, including how many babies you are allowed…GOOGLE "Margaret Sanger".
    -
    (one of Obummer's favorite role models).
    -
    Abortion will always be around. Heck, I've had one. It's a States' Right issue.
    Taxpayer funded is another story.
    Just a scare tactic the Left is employing with women, 'cuz he's bleeding in the polls with women and every demographic.

    more like murder



  17. 17

    All these men in an uproar about abortion. By the way, when was the last time they got pregnant? Nothing further



  18. 18

    Women are useless. That said a girl should have a right to an abortion. As long as shes forced to pay out of pocket for it. Otherwise if healthcare covers it my tax dollars pays for it. Therefore I'M paying for a girls screwup, and that doesn't sit well with me. Want an abortion, pay for it your damn self not make us pay for your idiocy.



  19. 19

    I don't want to talk abortion.
    Couldn't give a crap.

    $5/gallon gasoline is what I want fixed.

    Re: NookiesWA – The girl's screwup? Hey, Mr. 'Women are useless', it takes two to make a baby. Maybe they want help because guys like you walk away while women still make 60 cents on every dollar you get paid. That said, government shouldn't pay for the man's mistake of not wrapping it.



  21. 21

    He's an idiot, and people who think otherwise are also idiots. 99% of the female population in the USA use Birth Control, not just because they want to have lots of sex but because it's helps plenty of women with serious medical issues. 1 in 4 women are raped I'm not sure the satistic for how many of them get pregnant, but they need to have that abortion, also their are people who aren't ready and they take the procautions needed but the condom breaks or whatever, and lets say they would be shitty parents that abuse their children or neglect them or dislike them because they were forced to have that child, or can't provide everything the child will need in their life because the parent's can't provide enough for themselves.



  22. 22

    People need to be fucking smart about this and men can't say a damn thing for what women choose to do with their body. Women need these rights and politicans in particular SHOULD NOT be allowed to bring their own dumb ass religious beliefs into a health issue. Honestly these idiotic American's are ruining the world, not all Americans some of you are smart and want to fight for what is right and know that your government and banks have fucked the entire world and made the world a worse place for everyone. That's why America's education is like 23 out of 30 industrialized counties because they want to dumb their people down to just the bare minimum to become wage slaves to the weathly and they will have no right what so ever. WAKE THE FUCK UP PEOPLE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! Do something to make this world better not worse. If you believe what Santorum is saying you're making the world a lot worse right now for not using your brain and allowing yourself to believe the bullshit.

    Re: NookiesWA – you're not paying for fuck all you idiot the government is. I'm sure you're going to respond with "well it's my money they're using" it's not dumbass it's in their budget, god learn your facts and read a fucking book instead of coming on perez and talking out of your ass, dick. Women can do more then a man ever could. We're smarter, we know how to manage our time, we raise children, we make our houses home, we can bring in more money then a man even though we have to do longer hours, we can work longer hours and not complain, stay up later, make sure our kids have a great childhood, and still socialize with our friends, all while the man works for 40 hours a week and watches sports for the rest of the time or plays games or hangs out with his guy friends. You don't know shit and until you do STFU asshole.

    Ugh! I'll be glad when this douche is a distant memory. He must have consumed lead paint chips as a child.

    That's fine. I compare Rick Santorum to a steaming pile of shit.

    I believe its a woman's right to choose…. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and the beliefs of others shouldn't be enforced upon them. In countries where abortions are illegal women end up in back alley operating room having them done, they end up with unsterilized equipment, illness, and even death in those circumstances. Each woman has her own reasons to have an abortion, could be due to age, rape, unwanted pregnancy, or if in prenatal screening the baby is going to be sick or born with abnormalities (not everybody has it in them to raise a sick child). Women have come a long way to earn the rights that we have today, and the right to an abortion is one of them. I read this story about a young 10 year old girl who was raped in her elementary school bathroom who sadly got pregnant.. can this man really say that her parents shouldnt have the right to terminate that pregnancy.I personally do not believe in abortion for myself but I do believe that its everyones personal choice. I have to say Im happy Im Canadian because in the states it seems that all they want to do is control all of your rights…. gay rights… women's right…. what happened to all that bull about being free?



  27. 27

    women arent slaves either and they arent anybody's properties nobody has the right to say to a woman what she should do with her own body.



  28. 28

    It is completely comparable. they are both human beings who were/are denied the title 'persons' and they were/are both denied the right to life. its disgusting- both of them. abortion is a hidden holocaust.



  29. 29

    I hate the stereotypical Liberals defending abortion. Abortion is fucked up and primarily used for birth control not for rape cases. Justify it all you want. Whatever makes you sleep at night. This coming from a woman. Obamacrats make me sick.

    **you're not paying for fuck all you idiot the government is. I'm sure you're going to respond with "well it's my money they're using" it's not dumbass it's in their budget, god learn your facts and read a fucking book instead of coming on perez and talking out of your ass, dick.** spoken like someone who has no clue where government gets the money it budgets for.. The ONLY way the gov't gets money is by TAKING it from someone else who earned it.

    I will say, I am pleasantly surprised to see a good amount of folks who do understand what Mr. Santorum respectfully conveyed in this clip. The reason people fight for that unborn child is that they cannot fight for themselves.



  31. 31

    @Velyna: Money does not grow on trees. If the government pays for it, they're taking the money from taxes, or borrowing money. Either way, the shit is gonna hit the fan sometime, and either we're going to pay for it or the children that you're bitching about are going to have to pay for it. Also, coming from a woman, putting men down doesn't raise you any higher. Men can't raise children? Men can't stay at home? Ironic how you seem to be fighting for men/women's equality by putting women on a pedestal. Where do you actually think the government gets money? Do you pay taxes..? BTW, pregnancy is not a medical issue. It may lead to a medical issue, in which case your insurance would cover it.



  32. 32

    Re: Velyna – I do love how everything you said is wrong LOL. Do you think the government magically gets money off of trees? Our taxes is being used. Why the fuck do you think we pay taxes? For the fun of it? No. It covers road repairs, schools, police, firemen, military, healthcare.

    "We're smarter" - Is that why women have never done anything of any signiciance in the history of mankind? Last I checked everything you see and consume was thought up and built by men. How about that penecilian? Electricity? Yeah women sure are the smart ones!

    "we can bring in more money then a man even though we have to do longer hours, we can work longer hours and not complain" Now you're talking out of your ass. It has been STATISTICALLY proven that men work longer hours than women and take less time off. Men also have the highest rate of on the job deaths and injuries. Hence why women get paid less. I don't think I can take anything you say seriously at this point.

    Re: @v@ – Birth Control has a higher rater of success than a condom. In the end what are you going to trust? A tiny piece of latex with a thousand tiny holes poked in it or a pill? I'd go with the latter. Thats why this issue is just completely unfair towards men. Say I don't want a child because im smart and want to put an education and start a career first. Lets say im screwing you and you want a baby. I use a condom but you don't take the pill. BAM you get preggers because the condom fails..Now im FUCKED HARD. I cannot make you have an abortion. I cannot do shit except ruin my life even more. Point is that whole 50/50 thing isn't a good argument simply because pills > condom.

    Women make less money because you get paid paternity leave for a good 6 months. It always makes me lol when I see a girl complaining about that but completely forgets about their whole paid paternity leave. It's been statistically proven that men work longer hours, take less time off of work, and have the highest on the job fatalities and injuries. So you're damn right we should make a tad bit more than girls. Hell, We even have to do EXTRA work solely because we're males. Simply because we were made bigger and stronger. Do you work in an office? Who leaves their desk to go pick up big ass 40lb boxes of printer paper? The males. Work a blue collar job? Who do you have to get on the intercom and call when a customer wants to buy a big ass TV..A male.

    Re: gracyy – The government does take money for places like Planned Parenthood. For birth control, screenings, etc., but by law the taxes cannot go to funding abortions. The abortion funding comes from large organizations who choose to fund the abortion fees. I'm talking millions and millions of dollars, not some little donation. Even those organizations who donate have the option to not fund the abortion cost, because it is illegal for people's money to go towards abortion without their consent. I assume because it is such a controversial matter and goes against many people's religion and general beliefs.

    Re: NookiesWA – This is exactly the type of chauvinistic mentality that is setting us back 50 years. I'd like to see your facts checked because the "data" you spouted off sounds an awful lot like some jerk-wads misinformed opinions to me. Women ARE NOT guaranteed 6 months of paid maternity leave. You sound like a very very insecure, but oddly self-righteous male who women probably tend to avoid. You need a good lesson in philogyny, "sir". The misogyny is tired. We're not in the 50's anymore, tiny.



  36. 36

    Re: biggabigga – You're an idiot. A simple google search and you will find yourself on multiple legitimate statistics related websites backing up my claims. Arguing is one thing. But arguing against proven data that shows up on tons of trustworthy sites makes you look retarded. You're either a woman or a member of the LGBT..both in which like to attempt to argue against science and statistically facts.



  37. 37

    Re: NookiesWA – your logic is completely flawed. birth control and condoms have a failure rate of less than 10%, birth control is slightly more effective but your arguing less than 10 percentage points. Condoms protect against STD's so I can only imagine what you have based on the fact that you don't wear one bc it's less effective in your mind… anyways, I digress, How about you stop having sex if you feel that you can't control the outcome instead of telling women what to do.
    Also if we didn't get paid to leave work to have a baby, the human race would cease to exist so again, your logic is flawed. unless, of course, you believe we should push the baby out and keep on typing? The gender wage gap is a global issue and our government recognizes as so; you're on your own on this own, buddy. thank god our supreme court is run by unbiased individuals who made the access to abortion legal and left out religion and only looked at the FACTS. :)



  38. 38

    Re: NookiesWA – Actually no, the government get's money from the federal reserve, which is a private bank. Everything they take from the federal reserve they have to pay back with interest. It's not all your tax money. The state that you live in does more with your tax money then your government as a whole. Stop being so fucking stupid and learn about your own damn government. Also they're asking the insurance companies not YOU to pay for this for womens health. Anyone that doesn't understand that is idiots. I'm obviously not saying money grows on trees, if it did then no one would be poor what a world that would be. I'm saying that it's not your own fucking money it's the insurance companies and it's been said over and over and over again and yet somehow out of insurance company you hear tax payer money, that makes no sense.



  39. 39

    Re: NookiesWA – where did you get these statistics from "conventent theories for me.com" seriously you're an asshole and I feel sorry for any women who has to endure you.



  40. 40

    Fellow posters do NOT respond to NookiesWA, it just makes these "comments" to get a rise out of you all. If you don't respond to it then it has no one to argue with and maybe, just maybe it will go away. We can only hope.
