Video: Santorum Discusses Texas Abortion Measure

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum joined Texas GOP legislators on Thursday to tout proposed abortion regulations and criticize media coverage of the debate. Watch his full comments here.

During a news conference Thursday in support of an omnibus abortion bill, Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum chastised the media for portraying the Texas GOP as "a radical party trying to pass extreme measures by passing safety standards" that are commensurate with every other medical procedure done in the state. “You’re trying to say, 'Oh, this isn’t about this, it’s about something else.' … The bill is what the bill says it is,” Santorum said. He added that he came to Texas to help “shine a light into the darkness that the media has facilitated” on the issue of abortion regulations.
