from the article "...it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. They’re supposed to be within marriage, they are supposed to be for purposes that are, yes, conjugal, but also [inaudible], but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen. We take any part of that out, we diminish the act. And if you can take one part out that’s not for purposes of procreation, that’s not one of the reasons, then you diminish this very special bond between men and women"

Tranlated: We need to put the fear of pregnancy back into heterosexual sex. Do you agree?

So, with everyone concerned about the economy, the right wants us to discuss the birth control issue again?

Way over 90% of American woman have used some form of birth control. If repub men are following "the people" and not their personal wishes, this would not be an issue.

What next, making condoms illegal because it promotes sex for pleasure and not for procreation?

I sure hope repubs take the stance against birth control all the way to losing the next General Election by a landslide.

If Rich Sanitorium wants to be president, then worry about the economy, worry about jobs, worry about war, worry about things presidents SHOULD worry about. Stay the HELL out of American's bedrooms!!.

The Federal Gov can get no bigger than when it wants to get involved in your "family values".

Keep it in the Church Rick, no one cares if you're against YOUR wife using birth control. Don't try to push that on the rest of us by way of Federal laws you were push.

Rick's views on your liberties...or how he wants to restrict your liberties.

"They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do. Government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulation low and that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn't get involved in cultural issues, you know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world, and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can't go it alone, that there is no such society that I'm aware of where we've had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture"

-Rick Santorum

If that doesn't scare you when it comes to the Federal Gov. being in your bedroom, nothing will.

Rick Sanatarim is really running so he can save your soul. The bible does say contraception is a Sin, doesn't it?(Sorry can't seem to find a reference to that commandment) He must think all that 'worldly' shit, the economy, jobs, war etc. is just a distraction.

If he needs to be tutored on how to enforce morality he can contact the Taliban or the clergy in Iran, they have experience.

If the polls are right and he is a frontrunner for the Republican nomination, what does that say about "The Base", the Republican base.

Romney, Santorum, Gingrich: it makes no difference.

When the GOP delegates meet at the convention this summer, they should toss the primary state ballots and nominate Ron Paul for the good of the party.

If crowds start protesting outside the convention center, they should let loose the pepper spray cannons and police dogs.

He is a certified nutcase whose only loyalties lie with his ridiculous 'religion.' Regulating sexuality is not mentioned in the constitution and freedom from religion is just as important as freedom of religion. I don't want papist claptrap imposed on me or my family!

I don't think that Paul stands any better chance of winning the 2012 general election than would Santorum or Romney; it's just that Paul would at least fight the good fight, focussing his attacks on Obama's budget deficits, and set the stage for taking control of the House.

I don't think the bible says contraception isn't allowed, but I do believe it says that fornication should be for the sole purpose of reproducing.
(not positive about the wording though)
.
his approach to this really does point to a theocracy, which is NOT good.
.
(IMO) he's a frontrunner because "normal" conservatives aren't voting in the primary's, only the ones that feel strongly about the anti-Obama thing.
which explains why they (media/church/candidates) are making such a huge deal about this contraception thing; they have nothing else to validly complain about.

Anytime there is a debate with two groups of people on either side of the room; I'm just heading for the door, because my opinion will typically just make everybody angry.

OK, I'm all for contraception. Why? Because the last thing we need is more single moms married to the state and more bastard kids running around in the streets at night.

Honestly, if you're against contraception, then stop and try to think about it again logically.

Paul doesn't stand a chance of winning the nomination or the election. He is honest, has a well though out and coherent philosophy, can offer logical and well worded arguments for his beliefs and of course doesn't try to manipulate people to support him. Noone cares whether his beliefs are right or wrong, Americans want to be courted (as the song says, tell me lies, sweet little lies). Ron Paul, not a chance!

That's why I think the GOP delegates should nominate Paul at the convention. Technically speaking, they can do that; cast their vote at the convention for whomever they choose regardless of the results from the state primaries. Honestly, by the time all the GOP primaries are over and we get to the convention, I think most Republicans will have doubts about whomever they voted for anyhow.
Four more years with Obama in the White House and the Republicans controlling the House Of Reps and Senate would be OK-ish with me.

Rick sounds like a guy who has sex scheduled for every Wednesday; does it in the bedroom; only with his wife; only in the missionary position; and only with the lights out.

In 1965, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in the case Griswold v. Connecticut that a Connecticut law prohibiting the use of contraceptives violated the "right to marital privacy".

How can anyone claiming to want smaller Federal Gov be for the leader of our Gov to be involved in our family decisions?

I sure hope Santorum makes this his calling during the General Election like he's making it his primaries calling.

Even conservative women use birth control.

I would expect these old guys to push against insurance companies paying for viagra, but then again, you can expect that will never happen.
