Senator Rick Santorum
Champion of Faith & Families

As a husband and father, Rick Santorum knows the importance of protecting and providing for your 
family. He believes that at the core of the American experience is the family, and that without strong 
families, we cannot have a strong and vibrant nation.

During his time in elected office, Rick Santorum fought for the preservation of the traditional American 
family and for the protection of the most vulnerable in our society. Rick was the author of legislation 
outlawing the heinous act known as partial-birth abortion and he championed the fight to pass the "Born 
Alive Infant Protection Act" and the "Unborn Victims of Violence Act." He also authored legislation to 
advance adult stem cell research, so that ethical research could take place to fight debilitating diseases 
without the moral implications associated with embryonic stem cell research that destroys human life.

Rick Santorum not only believes but cherishes the ideal of a culture of life. As a member of the United 
States Senate, Rick fought for the passage of the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), and the 
"Combating Autism Act" to fight this devastating disease that is affecting more and more of our nation's 

When activist judges took it upon themselves to redefine marriage, and with it the underpinnings of the 
traditional American family and our First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion, Rick spearheaded the 
debate in favor of Federal Marriage Amendment in 2004. Rick successfully fought even members of his 
own Party and had the amendment brought to the Senate floor for public debate in two successive 
Congresses. Even though he knew he would be labeled a bigot or worse by members of the liberal elite, 
Rick Santorum understood this issue was far too important to the future of our society not to be debated 
before the American public.

Rick understands that our freedom to practice our faith is not just under attack through the redefinition of 
marriage, but in nearly every facet of the popular culture. As a member ofthe United States Senate, Rick 
authored the "Workplace Religious Freedom Act" to ensure individuals of all faith could not be 
discriminated against while on the job. Rick also founded the Congressional Working Group on Religious 
Freedom to ensure that the principle of Freedom of Religion would not be infringed upon.

Since leaving the Senate in 2007, Rick has spent much of his time advancing these same principles in the 
private and non-profit sector. Rick has helped raise funds to support organizations like the Susan B. 
Anthony List, Americans United for Life, and the National Organization for Marriage. But of all his jobs, 
Rick is most proud of his time spent as a husband to his wife Karen and a father to their seven children - 
including serving as the Little League coach for their two youngest sons.
