Rick Santorum is pro-choice on sodomy

That’s the best I can make of this.

Santorum said he also opposes the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision striking down a ban on sodomy in Texas and 13 other states. Even though he would not personally vote for a ban on sodomy, he said, he thinks states should legally be able to pass them, because sodomy is not a constitutionally protected right.

“I thought that law was an improper law … but that doesn’t mean the state doesn’t have a right to do that,” he said.
