One Republican Senator on Women’s Role in Society

Filed under: Policy July 5, 2005 @ 12:52 pm

Senator Rick Santorum, a “rising star” of the Republican Party, in his book:

Many women have told me, and surveys have shown, that they find it easier, more “professionally” gratifying, and certainly more socially affirming, to work outside the home than to give up their careers to take care of their children. Think about that for a moment…Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism, one of the core philosophies of the village elders.

Now, there is no problem whatsoever with choosing to stay at home to raise your children. Whether you’re a man or a woman, in fact. It’s a beautiful, fantastic, commendable choice. But as always, the problem with these social conservatives (and with the Republican Party as a whole, these days), is that they don’t want you to choose. They want to tell you how to live and how to raise your children. They know better than you how to live your life.

What will Republican Women say? Is this the policy of the Republican Party?

    I wouldn’t worry about Mr. Santorium. I don’t think he has much of a political future: http://spreadingsantorum.com/
