    St. Charles, Missouri (CNN) – Rick Santorum opened a new front Tuesday in his battle to paint Mitt Romney as moderate who sided with Democrats on key issues, accusing the former Massachusetts governor of mandating that hospitals provide emergency contraception to rape victims.

    In an op-ed Tuesday, Santorum said that in December 2005, then Gov. Romney "required all Massachusetts hospitals, including Catholic ones, to provide emergency contraception to rape victims."

    Opponents point to a law passed while Romney was governor of Massachusetts that required hospitals - including Catholic ones - to provide emergency contraception to rape victims.

    A spokeswoman for the Romney campaign said he had vetoed the original bill. That veto was overruled by the state legislature.

    Romney Communications Director Gail Gitcho pointed to the context that comes from the full "heart of hearts" quote.

    "My personal view, in my heart of hearts, is that people who are subject to rape should have the option of having emergency contraception or emergency contraception information," Romney said in 2005, according to Gitcho.

    Well at least Santorum isn't suggesting that rape victims should have to marry their rapists. Oh wait.....

    Santorum has come a long way - toward radical Christian fundamentalism/Taliban insanity...

    The three great evils in the world, the Catholic Church, Islam, and the Republican Party, all hate birth control.

    They want to keep women barefoot and pregnant.
