Skip to comments.National Right to Life, others endorse Romney (Dear Lord)
Posted on 04/12/2012 9:01:29 PM PDT by STARWISE
National Right to Life and two other major pro-family groups have endorsed Mitt Romney for president, saying that on the issues of abortion and marriage, he stands with them.
National Right to Life's endorsement Thursday (April 12) came two days after Romney's leading challenger for the Republican nomination -- Rick Santorum -- dropped out, making Romney the presumptive nominee. Also endorsing Romney were the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life women for political office, and the National Organization for Marriage, which has led the charge nationwide in protecting the traditional definition of marriage.
In its endorsement, National Right to Life said Romney "has taken a strong pro-life position and is committed to implementing policies to protect the unborn." The organization said Romney:
-- opposes Roe v. Wade, having called the 1973 decision a "big mistake."
-- supports the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortions.
-- backs the Mexico City Policy, which bans federal funds for organizations that perform or promote abortions in foreign countries.
"On pro-life issues, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama provide a stark contrast," said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. "As the country's most pro-abortion president, Barack Obama has pursued a radical pro-abortion agenda. It is now time for pro-life Americans to unite behind Mitt Romney. For the sake of unborn children, the disabled, and the elderly, we must win."
The Susan B. Anthony List made similar points and added that Romney has pledged to "appoint only constitutionalist judges to the federal bench" and also to defund Planned Parenthood.
"Women deserve a president who truly respects our views on an issue so central to womanhood," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. "A President Romney will be that man. If there was murkiness during the last election over Barack Obama's extreme abortion position, absolute clarity exists now -- and his abortion position is rejected by women young and old."
The National Organization for Marriage, which played key roles in preventing gay "marriage" from being legalized in California and Maine, said Romney was an early signer of the organization's pledge, which meant he was committing to:
-- support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
-- appoint Supreme Court justices and an attorney general "who will apply the original meaning of the Constitution."
-- "vigorously" defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act in court.
-- establish a presidential commission on religious liberty.
-- advance legislation to allow District of Columbia citizens to vote on the definition of marriage. Gay "marriage" currently is legal in D.C.
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, said the group was "proud" to endorse Romney.
"President Obama," Brown said, "has declared our nation's marriage laws to be unconstitutional and not only has refused to defend them, his administration is actively working to repeal them in the courts. He's come out against state constitutional amendments defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. And he has appointed leaders of the same-sex 'marriage' movement as national co-chairs of his reelection campaign.
Incredibly, Obama still apparently claims to personally support traditional marriage. With friends like President Obama, the institution of marriage doesn't need enemies."

FWIW, your droning is growing tedious, repetitious and tiresome to the point where you're becoming a PITA.
Care to place a wager on who is correct?
Courage is the ability to face the truth and do our best in dealing with that truth.
You do not deserve to be a leader in the Conservative movement if you dwell in fantasy and delusion.
You are forever tainted with a vote for Romney! That blood does NOT wash out, stained forever/eternity! I bet Romney bought them off like he does with everything else. Satan's own little minion - the LYING MITT and now satan has the National RTL movement in his pocket.
Again, you are politically incompetentent if you do not accept the expertise of the National Right to Life Committee!
Their expertise is from the DEVIL! Don't you even attempt to tell me to accept EVIL - EVER!! with your eternally blood stained hands!
Well, I'll keep posting here as long as Jim lets me but I refuse to participate in the mass delusion that has overtaken this place. I was for Perry from the beginning but despite being a stalwart conservative with a decade of executive experience and economic success under his belt, he allowed his campaign to implode. From there I tepidly went to the Gingrich camp where he quickly demonstrated what I had suspected, that he wasn't ready for Prime Time either. In retrospect, it appears that Mitt Romney was the only candidate who took the job of running for president seriously.
I'm getting awfully tired of these blue-staters standing on their pedestal and sanctimoniously telling me that they're "too principled" to vote for Romney. That's great if you live in California, a state that will go 60+ percent for Obama with or without your vote! I live in Florida. My vote counts and I will be voting to remove Obama from the White House. My children's future depends on it. At one time I would have thought that removing Obama from the White House would have been a shared goal on this forum but increasingly I am having my doubts.
They’re all selling out. Don’t these people understand that women in MA are TODAY getting their cheap abortions because of Mitt Romney? And he has NO problem with it.
They can all sell their souls to the devil, if that’s what they want. I answer to God only. I will not vote for Romney.
As someone said the other day, voting for the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil. Better to abstain.
So go vote for Obama. I won't be joining you.
That sounds like a great bumper sticker. Sorry, but I live in the real world where my children will pay the price of Obama's administration. I will do my best to attempt to mitigate the damage this man will do to their futures.
I keep hearing this term. Normally you hear this kind of thing from leftwingers, not conservatives.
I don’t hate Mormons. But I have no use for the Mormon faith itself. It blasphemes God. It denies and tries to change Biblical doctrine. It is openly racist. And it is a cult. If not wanting to see a high-ranking member of such a cult become the leader of this nation makes me a “Mormon basher”, then I’m guilty. Sue me.
I won’t be voting for Romney or Obama, TYVM. And before you jump to the RINO crowd’s favorite tactic: No, a refusal of support for Romney is not a vote for Obama.
You are a WUSS. And you can’t handle anyone with GUTS!!
What part of Romney do you like his *PRO HOMO* side or HIS *PRO KILLING OF BABIES* side or is it his *LIBERALISM*, sucker!!
I don’t take drugs - ONLY a mitt lover with think of drugs with eternally stained hands.
Bullcrap. This is exactly what it is. Stand behind your principles of you wish but don't try and BS me with this nonsense.
VOTE and SUPPORT NEWT!!
Wonder where that Newt prayer thread is we had a while back.
Newt's finished. He's broke, in debt, getting no endorsements and going nowhere. Wake up and smell the coffee. The race for the Republican nominee is over. Mitt won. You can vote for Romney. Or you can vote for Obama.
WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD. THESE ARE YOUR ONLY TWO CHOICES.
By voting for one who supports it, you are just as liable as they are. Everything is written down - there is no escaping it as it's not hidden. HE knows ALL.
You can keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better. I'm not buying it (and in your heart, you're probably not buying it either).
