Despite Polls, Santorum Holds Firm on Abortion...

With the latest Public Policy Poll showing him garnering just 5% of votes, GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum's bid for the White House appears to be a long shot at best.  However, the former two-term Pennsylvania Senator, showed during the Iowa GOP Debate, that he does not waver when it comes to abortion. 

During the debate, Santorum was asked whether he still believed, as he stated in June, that doctors that performed abortions should be criminally prosecuted, despite public opinion polls that indicate a majority of Americans thought abortion should be allowed in certain cases. 

Without hesitation, Santorum answered, "You know, the Supreme Court of the United States in a recent case said that a man who commited rape could not be killed; could not be subject to the death penalty.  Yet, the child concieved as a result of that rape could be.  That to me sounds like a country that does not have its morals correct.  That child did nothing wrong.  That child is an innocent victim.  To be victimized twice is a horrible thing."

He went on to say the unborn child is genetically human from the moment of conception and that we as a nation should be big enough to help women who have already suffered the trauma of rape, from being traumatize again by abortion.  He said, "One violence is enough."  Many in the audience broke into applause.     

It's amazing how, for some, public opinion polls seem to dictate what is truth...
