Santorum Plays Race Card Against Obama

January 20, 2011

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) invoked President Obama's African-American ancestry while discussing the president's views on the genesis of human life and subsequent support of abortion rights.

In an interview this week with CNS News, Santorum said: "I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, 'No, we're going to decide who are people and who are not people" when discussing abortion rights.

Santorum took heat in his 2006 re-election bid for making a string of controversial remarks about gender roles and hot-button social issues like gay marriage and abortion.
