Santorum: ACLU Attacking Religious Hospitals

Former Sen. Rick Santorum has unleashed an attack on the American Civil Liberties Union for its demand that federal rules be rewritten to force religiously affiliated hospitals to provide abortions. In an op-ed column for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Santorum accused "liberal rick,santorum,aclu,religious,hospitalselites" of using changes in healthcare policy to make abortions more accessible.

Santorum, who used to represent Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate, says the ACLU "is asking the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services -- which controls nearly $800 billion in President Obama's latest budget -- to force hospitals to provide abortions or lose federal funding."

Santorum says forcing healthcare providers to perform abortions regardless of their religious beliefs is an "abuse of conscience [that] betrays American principles that go back at least to the country's founding."
