All you need to know is that all of them except Huntsman, who is not a factor because he says he trusts in scientists, have signed a "personhood" pledge which supports the banning of any after fertilization form of birth control.
This means the Pill. Not the morning after one time pill that's been controversial. The once a month Pill that has not been controversial.
Of course, my homeboy Santorum would go farther. He disagrees with all forms of birth control, which is just so insane it's hard to "conceive" of.

Contrary to what you see in the political coverage, I am sure not all residents of of SC are cro magnons. Maybe not even all Republican S. Carolians are.

Abortion, gay rights, and faith.
3 things I'm sure ALL south Carolinians are really worried about all the time.
Why just the other day I was wondering how my faith would be shaken by a gay person's right to abortion.
Why is the GOP so interested in these things?
how can the party of small govt want so desperately to invade the privacy of Americans? Why are republicans constantly accusing people who are not like them of being Un-American?
Isn't diversity what makes America the bestest nation there ever was?
Why is a guy like Newt all interested the "sanctity" of marriage?
How did abortion become a political issue? What if the Christian right decides kidney transplants are against gods will?
What is the big deal wit gay people? Why do they have republicans all up on arms?
One thing is for sure.....there are NO conservative republicans running.
I guess I could thank god for that but I'm an atheist.
But I'm not gay or on welfare. Actually I'm a job creator. And I still feel like all these guys are dicks.
