Thank You Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul
The Story is here.
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 25, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pro-life GOP presidential contenders Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee both took part in leading pro-life rallies in Washington and Atlanta protesting 35 years of abortion since the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and called for legislation protecting life from the moment of conception. Republican frontrunner John McCain, however, reiterated his support for embryo destroying stem-cell research even as his Senate colleague Sam Brownback reaffirmed his endorsement of McCain at the National March for Life.
"The debate about when life begins should not be a debate," Rep. Ron Paul told the tens of thousands of marchers rallied together on the Washington Mall. "Let me assure you that all life begins at conception.".............
Mike Huckabee was in Atlanta
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee also led a record crowd of more than 5,000 pro-life demonstrators at a rally in Atlanta organized by Georgia Right to Life to show his support for a new state amendment that would directly challenge the foundations of Roe v. Wade.
"The Paramount Right to Human Life Amendment" or HR 536 sponsored by Rep. Martin Scott, R-Rossville would define human life as beginning at conception and state life is a right to be held above all others.
"We're in the middle of 35 years of a national nightmare that needs to end soon," Huckabee said. "I've always said I got into politics because I'm pro-life."
"There cannot be a geographical distinction when it comes down to something that is either right or wrong," Huckabee continued. "The logic that each of the states can come up with their own definition of how to respect human life is the logic of the Civil War. And we saw how that turned out."
Huckabee emphasized that abortion "is not a political issue, it is a moral issue" and called for a similar amendment protecting life to the US constitution. The candidate did not mention his own run for the GOP nomination, which is struggling from lack of funds. Huckabee has received the endorsement of Georgia Right to Life.
Silence from McCain and Mitt.
