Santorum Promises to Crack Down on Porn

Ad Feedback

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has promised that he'll crack down on pornography if he's elected president, saying America is suffering from a pandemic of the illicit material.

In a statement on his website, he criticized the Obama administration for turning a blind eye to the distribution of porn and vowed to enforce laws already on the books.

"Every family must now be concerned about the harm from pornography," he wrote. "As a parent, I am concerned about the widespread distribution of illegal obscene pornography and its profound effects on our culture," he wrote.

"Together we will prevail," he added.

Meanwhile, Democrats are attacking former Gov. Mitt Romney for announcing he would cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

They're trying to paint him as a candidate who opposes women's health care. But Romney's camp said his comments are being taken out of context. 
    
The controversy stems from a speech in Missouri where Romney outlined plans to cut the federal deficit.

"I have three rules," he during the speech. "Number one, I'm going to look at every program and ask if this program is so essential, it's worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?"

"And if it doesn't pass that test, I'm getting rid of it," he declared. "So 'Obamacare' - goodbye! Subsidies for Amtrak and for Planned Parenthood, those things - goodbye."
    
But a Romney adviser says the former governor was not suggesting the abortion provider be eliminated, noting that the organization has other sources of funding.
