Mrs. Santorum: Rick Not ‘Anti-Women’

Behind 15 points in Illinois polls, the Santorum campaign brought out Karen Santorum to go to bat for her husband. On CNN’s Piers Morgan on Monday night, Karen Santorum said, “Women have nothing to fear when it comes to contraceptives, [Rick Santorum] will do nothing on that issue.” She insisted that her husband would “absolutely not” encroach on women’s access to birth control, and he would not allow his personal religious beliefs to impact his decisions on the matter. Showing that she has some sense of humor on the issue, Karen said that she thought it was “sort of funny” when Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown joked over the weekend that her husband’s Secret Service detail is the first time Santorum had “used protection.” Meanwhile, Rick Santorum said Tuesday that he would be watching the primary results in Gettysburg, Pa., his home state, at the venue of Abraham Lincoln’s famous address.
