CNN Arizona Debate: Is Birth Control the New Third Rail of Politics? - Page 3
Of all the candidates, it would be most important for Santorum to give a clear and cogent answer to the question. But after telegraphing he arrived at his views based on outdated statistics, he devolved into his latest shtick, just because I believe something doesn’t mean I’m going to make you do it. Does anyone really trust him on that?
Ron Paul urged us not to blame the chemical for the bad acts of people. It was probably an honest argument if the issue was arson or murder, but seemed an odd response for a gynecologist who was discussing family planning. Does he think birth control is irresponsible? Like all the others, his actual views remained under wraps.
One thing is clear as a bell, though. Each of these guys is deathly afraid of saying whether or not he believes in birth control. That kind of sheer cowardice is unworthy of the office they seek.
