During a recent campaign stop, Santorum was noted to have spoke against prenatal care for women, saying that “giving women prenatal care leads to more abortions.” Obviously a bold statement, Scheiffer asks for some clarification. Santorum argues that prenatal testing in particular is meant to reveal deformities in utero – which usually (?) leads to abortions. For more on Santorum’s remarks, click here.

If you’re interested, check out crops of the mural (and a link to the artist’s page) here.
