At a campaign appearance in Missouri, frontrunner for Miss American Bigot 2012 Rick Santorum waxed nostalgic about the days when abortion was shameful and in the shadows. You know, back alley. What lovely times, those.

The Bachmannesque soliloquy was captured by an attendee at the American Heartland Forum in Columbia, MO. Santorum also warned the crowd that Obamacare would result in mass euthanasia of the elderly, like in the Netherlands (everyone knows that the Dutch are known for their tulips, wooden shoes, Van Gogh, and murder) and lamented the fact that people so proudly strut off to Planned Parenthood for their abortions, because it's just accepted nowadays.

Abortions are accepted and totally safe and available and not stigmatized? Wherever Rick Santorum's living, I'd like to apply for citizenship. I'd love to live in that country rather than the one I currently inhabit, wherein a traveling abortion doctor wears a mask so anti-abortion terrorists don't murder her and her whole family.
