Democrats are morphing the Obama administration's mandate on birth control into a campaign plot against Rick Santorum and other Republican candidates for president, Rush Limbaugh says.

"Willing accomplices in the media" are helping Democrats take advantage of the issue, Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show. They are trying to establish the notion that Santorum and the other Republicans are determined to deny women birth-control pills, Politico reported.

President Barack Obama recently announced a mandate that required faith-based employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception for their workers. Under heavy fire from the Catholic Church and others, Obama changed the mandate last week to require insurers, rather than religious groups themselves, to provide contraceptive coverage.

"The whole point of this contraception stuff [that] started last week is to make sure that if Santorum gets this Republican nomination, that's what he's going to be known for, and of course the theme of that is: Santorum hates women, Republicans hate women, Republicans have no respect for women. Republicans want women in the kitchen constantly pregnant," Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh also chided those who use contraceptives simply to avoid serious consequences, Politico reports. They will vote for Obama on that issue alone, he said.
