Santorum On Obama’s Abortion Position: “Remarkable For A Black Man” To Decide

Well it seems you can cross one name off the list of potential GOP nominees for 2012. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum who has always been a reliable social conservative, just expressed a very strong and offensive opinion in discussing his disapproval of President Obama’s stance on abortion.

Taking issue with Obama’s famous comments on abortion where the President claimed the issue was “above my paygrade,” Santorum unleashed on the President:

“The question is – and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer — is that, is that human life a person under the Constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that person, human life is not a person, then, I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, ‘no we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.'”

Santorum argued that just about every respectable biologist agrees that a fetus is a human life and claims it is not a debatable issue. With Santorum’s random injection of race into an already politically charged topic, what also no longer seems to be a debatable issue is whether Santorum has much of a future left in politics.
