A Republican close to the campaign says the former Pennsylvania senator was to make the announcement Tuesday in his home state of Pennsylvania, two weeks before the GOP presidential primary there. Santorum faced a tough fight in his home state against Romney.

Pretty much as expected. He's young and looking to his future hopes for political power. Never understood his goals beyond his speech platitudes.

Back in the Dark Ages, unsterilized scissors were used for abortions. We have moved well beyond that. Now we use sterilized scissors to cut a baby into pieces. Progress!

I thought they used a method

I thought they used a method similar to liposuction, but what do I know? Anyway, at least I have the right to choose. And just for the record, Santorum, I would like point out that there are other reasons for birth control besides the bonus of sex without babies. But, I guess they don't teach many men that side of sex education class.
