Rick Santorum Ties Roe v. Wade to Obergefell v. Hodges

santorumRoe v. Wade is such a boogeyman for social conservatives that they can tie any of their bêtes noires to it, like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. So it would make a kind of sense to for someone like Rick Santorum to tie Obergefell v. Hodges to Roe, except that the history of the religious right goes further back, to a darker place in U.S. history.

Yet Santorum, follower of the religious right’s historical revisionism, said such to the National Right to Life Committee’s annual convention:

This is a very difficult time in America. We’ve seen some court decisions that I know have pepole very upset about what the future of the family and marriage and our culture is looking like. I just want to remind everybody where that decision came from. That decision came from – I gave many speeches during my presidential and prior to that my Senate career talking about Roe v Wade being the cancer that is infecting the body of America. And you saw Roe and its subsequent decisions bear its ugly head in the case of the gay marriage decision just a few days ago…
