Rick Santorum Slams Obama on Porn: Administration 'Turned A Blind Eye' to Obscenity Laws, 2012 GOP Candidate Claims

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is attacking President Obama on porn, saying on his website the Justice Department seems to favor pornographers over children.

That's now how it'll be if Santorum becomes president, the former Pennsylvania senator said.

The Obama Administration has turned a blind eye to those who wish to preserve our culture from the scourge of pornography and has refused to enforce obscenity laws, Santorum wrote on his website, ricksantorum.com, under the title, Enforcing laws against illegal pornography. While the Obama Department of Justice seems to favor pornographers over children and families, that will change under a Santorum Administration.

Santorum said the country is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography.

Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships, the conservative 2012 candidate said. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to sex traffic.

Santorum's porn crusade plays well with his hardcore conservative audience, for whom family values is one of their top concerns when they vote.

Santorum said he would an appoint an attorney general to enforce federal obscenity laws that prohibit distributing hardcore porn online, on cable or satellite television, in TVs in hotels and motels, in retail stores and through the mail.

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

Santorum has been the main challenger to 2012 GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor.

Santorum is coming off Republican primary victories in Mississippi and Alabama, although Romney has a sizeable lead in the delegate count.
