Mike Huckabee to host anti-abortion forum in Iowa tonight

And guess who is attending?

Huckabee will premiere a 60-minute documentary produced by Citizens United, called “The Gift of Life,” Wednesday night at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines.

GOP presidential candidates Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich will each give a five- to seven-minute address on pro-life issues, said Jeff Marschner, press secretary for Citizens United.

All GOP presidential candidates were invited to the event, Marschner said, but Ron Paul and Mitt Romney had other engagements on the East Coast.

In case there was any question of what issues this stellar crew of Presidential candidates deems worthy to focus on, rest assured ladies! Your uterus is their top priority. Never mind that these babies-to-be have scant job prospects, shitty and too expensive health care and a global warming crisis awaiting them.

Romney and Huckabee Paul may have conveniently had other engagements (perhaps trying to preserve an actual shot at the presidency?) but don’t think that absolves them from the uterus obsession sweeping the Republican party. NARAL has a clear analysis of Romney’s voting history, and it sure isn’t pro-choice.

    Ron Paul is very much anti-abortion and it is part of his platform, so I doubt it’s that he was attempting to retain his ‘shot’ (like he has one) at presidency.

    Why is there no mention as to how psychopathic Ron Paul’s stance on abortion is? It completely clashes with his campaign that insists on virtually no government. Unless you have a vag, then, we control your sexual parts, but everyone else– FREEDOM AHOY!
    Honestly, I find Ron Paul to be the most respectable and original Republican of all those dumbasses taking part in those “debates”, but his stance on abortion is draconian to say the least.
