Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has once again separated himself from the rest of the GOP contenders when he spoke about abortion - and not in a good way.
In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Santorum proclaimed that when a woman becomes pregnant after being raped, she has a duty to keep the child.
The former Pennsylvania Senator said the victim should not get an abortion, but instead welcome their "horrible gift from God."
Santorum phrases being raped as “women in such a position." He goes on to justify that having a baby after rape as “making the best out of bad situation."
Santorum’s thinking on this is skewed; he’s coming off like being raped is the woman’s fault: 'Well she was in that position, so she’d better make the most of that bad situation.'
This isn't the first time Santorum's exclamations have gotten him in trouble this election season. While campaigning in Iowa he told a group of supporters:
“I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money.”
Later Santorum said he doesn’t remember saying that, retracting his statement:
“I’ve looked at that quote, in fact I looked at the video. In fact, I’m pretty confident I didn’t say black. I started to say is a word and then sort of changed and it sort of — blah — mumbled it and sort of changed my thought.”
Either way, it didn’t look good for Santorum. Take a look at some other questionable quotes made by Rick Santorum in the accompanying gallery.
