Judge overturns part of Utah law against polygamy

Polygamy is against the law in the United States, but living 'like' a polygamist is now legal in Utah. A federal judge has overturned part of the state's polygamy law after a lawsuit by the stars of the television reality series "Sister Wives," Kody Brown and his four wives.

The controversial decision has been heavily criticized - most notably by former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

Santorum says he was right. Was he?

OutFront: Laurie Allen was born into polygamy and escaped at the age of 16. She is also the producer of the documentary "Banking on Heaven."

Tony Perkins is the president of the Family Research Council.
