Rick Santorum: It Would Be 'Suicidal' For GOP To Embrace Gay Marriage

(Des Moines, IA)  --  Rick Santorum says supporting same-sex marriage would be suicidal for the Republican Party.  The former Pennsylvania senator cited recent decisions by GOP Senators Rob Portman of Ohio and Mark Kirk of Illinois to back same-sex marriage. 

Santorum told "The Des Moines Register" it's similar to what happened in the 1960s and 1970s when some Republicans broke with the party to support abortion.  He said the GOP didn't change back then and predicted it's not going to happen on the same-sex issue now.
