Santorum Voted to Subsidize Abortion, Planned Parenthood
The New American & you tube ^ | 01.16.12 | Alex Newman

Posted on 01/24/2012 7:45:07 PM PST by Coleus

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is under fire in South Carolina for touting his alleged pro-life beliefs but voting to subsidize abortion and Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in America, while serving in the U.S. Senate. He has also backed pro-abortion candidates and voted for legislation that is being used to federally prosecute peaceful pro-life protesters who demonstrate outside of abortion clinics. Critics are outraged.

The once top-tier Republican candidate, who surged into the spotlight after an unexpected strong finish in Iowa before a disastrous showing in New Hampshire, defended himself against the attacks by lashing out at fellow GOP contender Rep. Ron Paul. He also argued that he voted for the unconstitutional appropriations — used for terminating pregnancies, lobbying against pro-life legislation, handing out birth control, and litigating to keep abortion legal — because they were part of bigger spending bills he supported.

A group called Iowans for Life first went after Santorum on the issue before the caucuses there, distributing fliers calling the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania a “Pro-Life Fraud.” The leaflets highlighted, among other points, the fact that Santorum had "a long and storied history of campaigning for radical pro-abortion candidates” such as former Sen. Arlen Specter — a Republican who later turned Democrat.

On January 13, Santorum’s record on abortion came back to haunt him again when he was confronted about voting to subsidize abortion and its apologists during a small town-hall meeting in South Carolina. He promptly attacked the questioner, accusing him of being a “Ron Paul supporter.” Then he plowed into a diatribe against the pro-life Texas Congressman, who finished a strong second in New Hampshire last week and is widely seen as a front-runner in the Republican race.

“This is a very interesting thing,” Santorum said, puzzled, apparently looking for the right words to answer a question he had not been expecting. “There is nobody that’s been a stronger pro-life leader in the United States Congress than I was.” He also alleged — inaccurately — that Ron Paul, who has never voted to fund Planned Parenthood, did not have a solid record of defending life while in office.

Santorum continued his anti-Paul rant, accusing the 12-term Congressman of not voting for federal spending even while inserting earmarks into legislation in an effort to return money to his constituents from the federal government. But despite Santorum’s bumbling efforts to attack Ron Paul, analysts say the Texas veteran — who delivered over 4,000 babies during his career as a doctor — actually proposed the most effective way to constitutionally overturn Roe v. Wade.

Indeed, Paul introduced a bill known as the We The People Act to remove the Supreme Court’s purported jurisdiction over abortion and other issues. He sponsored the legislation in every legislative session since at least 2004, though Santorum never got on board.

Santorum then continued to defend his vote by claiming that the funding was used for birth control. However, because money is fungible, few serious analysts accept the implied argument that tax funds for Planned Parenthood are not used to subsidize abortion. They undoubtedly are.

“The program that he’s talking about is a program called Title X, and it’s a program that is in appropriation bills that funds — allows for funding of, uh, uh, uh — of birth control,” Santorum claimed when he eventually addressed the original question, carefully avoiding any mention of Planned Parenthood’s far more lucrative abortion business or its pro-abortion lobbying. “I am not for federal funding of that, but it’s in a big bill that provides a lot of things. Did I vote for that overall bill? Yes, I did.” He then resumed his attacks on Paul for not supporting enough federal spending.

The legislation in question was also used to fund several other federal departments not authorized by the Constitution including Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. But for many pro-life activists, voting for any bill that sends even a dime of tax money to an organization known to commit over 329,000 abortions every year is deal breaker — let alone voting to appropriate almost half of a billion dollars for the abortionist cause.   

One pro-life commentator in South Carolina, Brian Frank, wrote in the S.C. Hotline that Santorum’s vote to fund Planned Parenthood actually “makes him a partner in crime of the ungodly murder of the innocent unborn.” Frank assailed the GOP hopeful for other faults, too. “’Mr. Pro-life’ voted to have innocent Americans placed into the PP vegi-matic laboratories and enthusiastically campaigned for pro-abortion Arlen Specter against the more conservative Pat Toomey,” the critic noted. He also said Santorum was mistaken if he believed his votes to fund Planned Parenthood could be hidden from Christians and pro-life activists.  

Santorum also voted for the Democrat-sponsored “Freedom of Access to [Abortion] Clinic Entrances Act,” legislation purportedly making it a federal crime to “interfere” with a person seeking to terminate a pregnancy. As critics warned at the time, the bill has been used with increasing frequency to prosecute peaceful protesters. The former Senator vigorously campaigned for several rabidly pro-abortion candidates, too — even against their pro-life opponents.

Beyond abortion, Santorum’s voting record in the Senate also includes other evidence that the GOP hopeful is not quite as “conservative” as he would like voters to believe. For example, he supported unconstitutional gun control, the Medicare Part D prescription drug program, raising the debt ceiling, invading Iraq without a declaration of war, and expanding the unconstitutional Department of Education. He also backed indefinite detentions, torture, removing habeas corpus, and other legislation repugnant to American traditions and the Constitution. But it has not gone unnoticed by his opponents.

As the GOP race heats up, in addition to his votes for Planned Parenthood and the law used to prosecute pro-life protesters, critics are also taking aim at Santorum’s consistent support for big government. Comments by the former Senator advocating a “long war” to “eradicate” many of the world’s more than one billion Muslims have been the focus of some criticism, too. And his vow to unilaterally and unconstitutionally attack Iran when elected if its government refuses to obey him has some analysts very nervous as well.

and so did mike pence, chris smith and rick santorum;  they all voted for title X funding every year.  It was part of the omnibus Labor and Health appropriation's bill.  Just follow the trail... How do you think title X is funded, through thin air?  No, it's voted on by the House and then the Senate in a companion bill.   Don't believe everything you are told.  Just look at the congressional voting record, it's the same every year, they vote for the bill which includes title X funding... Raising the amount during the bush administration.

Sure it’s true..I’m glad at least one FReeper checked the sources.

Why can’t the Freepers use some independent thought?

Planned Parenthood appropriations grew during the Bush Administration with a Republican Majority in the House of Representatives, the house spends the money, Title X appropriations grew during bush, so who the heck voted for it? The republicans no doubt. What republicans? the so-called devout evangelical and catholic, and so-called pro-life republicans like Chris Smith and Rick Santorum with evangelical speaker of the House JD Hastert at the helm.

what a sham.

"It explicitly says that NO FUNDS CAN BE USED FOR ABORTION."

So the funds went to the light bill, the janitor, phone system and advertising.

They still went to "non-profit" organizations that promote and perform abortions.

The PaulBot has a point and a valid criticism.

Friggin' retard PaulBots.

While I'm saddened to learn this, The New American is the John Birch Society's magazine, and their guy is Ron Paul. Notice their criticism of Santorum's alleged "rants" against Paul.

I don't know if JBS and TNA make official endorsements, but they don't need to. All members get the message whom to vote for.

Considering Paul's ties with Soros, NAMBLA, and other such disgusting life forms, I'm madder at the Birchites than usual . . . and that's sayin' somethin'!

Based on what I've read of his voting record, Rick talks conservative, but he sure knows how to vote liberal.

Wonder if he took money from Jack Abramoff? Wonder why Newt is letting him hang around.

Maybe after FL., he'll go join Cain, Perry & Bachmann at the bar.

I don't believe this article will be zotted until/unless the accusations are proven incorrect or so thoroughly incomplete as to be essentially incorrect.

There's no doubt Santorum has been a rhetorical warrior in the war against infanticide and there's no doubt he has sponsored substantial legislation to support that position.

But it appears not every vote was true to cause, similar to most Republicans.

However, Santorum stands on his claim to perfection on this issue, therefore the accusation, if not proven untrue, is valid commentary here.

Unless Jim says otherwise.

No, but I used to consider it in the olden days.

My concern is that we not, as even I have done sometimes, (and against my better nature) impugn the message due to the sh!tty nature of the messenger.

In the war of the next 9 months all of us must be vigilant and remind our compatriots that the world watches us.

The GOP must winnow the field and we must ensure we get our best shot possible.

Please feel free to remind me if I disregard information due to where it came from. I do it all the time:)

He did not vote for abortion.

Here's an item:

“Vote on a motion to send back to committee HR 796, a bill amending the federal criminal code to prohibit actions directed at clinics which perform abortion procedures, or at those persons attempting to access these clinics.”

This was a vote to send HR 796 back to committee. That's nothing. I'd have to research HR 796, which is the amendment, and also the above mentioned “federal criminal code,” then see if the amendment came up for a vote, etc. Can I do this? you better believe it. Just not now. I have to get up for work in the morning.

From the National Right-to-Life Committee Santorum received a 100% rating; Newt received about 98%, and now that he’s a Catholic I’m sure it would be 100%, but NOW LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT RON PAUL - ONLY a MERE 56%!!!!

The sneaky Ron Paul has a mixed record on abortion:

“Voted NO on restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions. (Apr 2005)

Voted NO on making it a crime to harm a fetus during another crime. (Feb 2004)

Rated 56% by the NRLC, indicating a mixed record on abortion. (Dec 2006)”

snip http://www.issues2000.org/Ron_Paul.htm#Abortion

AND MORE pro-abort votes if you check out his voting record.

Why is Ron Paul against a parent deciding what’s right for their minor child?

Basically, if I follow this logic, anyone who ever voted for a funding bill voted for planned parenthood.

On the other hand, anyone who voted against funding, voted against our troops overseas.

The way business is done is unworthy of our nation. I will admit that. A bill should be single focused and not omnibus.

DOD should get their own vote, IRS, EPA, etc., etcl, on down the line to whatever niche planned parenthood would occupy.

I see you resorted to name calling, very low of you...I think you should think about all the horrors you hear about planned parenthood and wonder how planned parenthood gets their money, from Rick Santorum and others like him...

The problem with the National Right to Life is that they never put the Title X funding as an item on their scorecard and the NRLC never helped South Dakota in their anti-abortion bill, so how pro life are they?

Didn’t you read that it’s not supposed to pay for or promote abortion? >>

all money is fungible, if rick santorum didn’t fund planned parenthood with hundreds of millions of dollars, they would be out of business by now... so now you are saying that it’s ok for Rick Santorum to fund planned parenthood?? Is that what you mean?

There’s no doubt Santorum has been a rhetorical warrior in the war against infanticide and there’s no doubt he has sponsored substantial legislation to support that position. >>>

and there is no doubt that the pro-life republicans have been funding planned parenthood (Title X)for decades...and have increased the amount during the bush administration with a republican house.

You’re a disgraceful human being and an apostate bearing false witness against a good and decent fellow Christian who has walked the talk. You make me ill.
