Finally, there is a conservative answer to MoveOn.org: RoeGone.org, as in Roe v. Wade – GONE. Nice, huh? What’s even nicer is the ad they’re launching to expose Mitt Romney’s record. Be looking for secular conservative pundits and compromising pro-lifers to jump the Romney ship soon. No kidding. I predict this thing will signal the end of the Romney campaign.
Unlike the other ads that have been done on Romney that primarily focus on his flip-flops on abortion, marriage, gun control, immigration, taxes, pornography etc., RoeGone.org’s ad clearly delineates Romney’s record as governor – which is very appropriate since that’s exactly what Gov. Romney said we should do. I was there at the debate last week when Romney responded to the flip-flop accusations with the words: “I can point to a very simple way to find out exactly where I stand, and that is look at my record as governor.”
Let’s do that, shall we? Watch the ad (which I narrate), or read the script:
In the Florida debate, Governor Mitt Romney said:
“I can point to a very simple way to find out exactly where I stand, and that is look at my record as governor.”
As governor, Mitt Romney issued an executive order forcing justices of the peace to perform homosexual weddings, or resign. Then he ordered marriage licenses changed to read “party A” and “party B” – instead of “husband” and “wife.”
As governor, Romney appointed a board member of the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association to the bench, and appointed more Democrat judges than Republicans.
As governor, Romney authored and signed a mandatory heath insurance plan backed by Ted Kennedy – including taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.
As governor, Romney overruled his own health department and forced Catholic hospitals to distribute the morning after abortion pill.
Catholic hospital morning after pills?
Homosexual activist judges?
“Look at my record as governor.”
In a press release yesterday, RoeGone.org spokesperson Sharon Blakeney said:
Meanwhile, the word is getting out that Gov. Mike Huckabee is the only candidate who supports both a Human Life Amendment and a Marriage Protection Amendment.
- Unlike Mitt Romney whose health-care plan includes abortion on demand.
- And John McCain who thinks taxpayers should fund medical experiments on human embryos.
- And Rudy Giuliani who supports every single abortion for all nine months, just like Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and John Edwards.
Huckabee stands for marriage while McCain and Giuliani (and Clinton, Obama and Edwards) oppose the Marriage Protection Amendment, and Romney opposed a Marriage Amendment to his state constitution.
The good news is the word is getting out in Florida. On Friday, Gov. Huckabee received the “Champion of Life Award” from Florida’s Broward County Right to Life for his “outspoken, courageous, uncompromising commitment to restoring legal protection to unborn children,” and on Saturday he received the “Defender of Life” award from Floridians for Life. He was also just endorsed by Tennessee, Arizona and Missouri Right to Life, which joined Georgia and Montana Right to Life and Michigan Chooses Life.
Unlike Gov. Romney, whose millions have flooded Florida with misinformation, Gov. Huckabee has been pro-life for more than 10 minutes. He first got involved in the political process as a pastor working to pass a Human Life Amendment. He also helped pass a state marriage amendment in Arkansas – a lead Floridians are trying to follow with their marriage ballot initiative. Yesterday, National Right to Life Political Action Committee issued the following statement:
“National Right to Life is grateful for the strong pro-life record established by Mike Huckabee as governor of Arkansas, and recognizes that Governor Huckabee has taken the strongest pro-life position on all of the life issues of any of the remaining candidates for president.”
And Floridian Bobby Schindler, Terri Schiavo’s brother, has just come out and endorsed Gov. Huckabee as well. Turns out he’s the best at protecting those at the end of life, too.
And Rep. Duncan Hunter’s endorsement of Huckabee is helping to bring the defense and border conservatives on board:
“I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail,” said Hunter. “Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America’s industrial base.
“Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement,” Hunter added. “Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed.”
With the Supreme Court and millions of lives in the balance, there’s only one choice for a pro-lifer to make: Gov. Mike Huckabee. Tell everyone you know beginning in Florida (forward your Florida friends this article with the links to the voter guides below). Then, tell everyone on your e-mail list about www.RoeGone.org and the Romney ad which, in the long run, should be of help to him. Once he’s out of the race, he’ll have more time to spend with that family of his, and as Huckabee pointed out in the debate: By saving all his personal money from going to the campaign, maybe Romney’s sons will have an inheritance after all.
