South Carolina ProLife Presidential Forum Video and Quotes
During last week’s standing room only ProLife Presidential Forum in South Carolina, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized former Governor Romney’s switch in positions, stating: “Gov. Romney also, after becoming pro-life, passed Romneycare with taxpayer funded abortions…his administration approved paying for an abortion clinic for Planned Parenthood with state funds and he appointed pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage judges to the court. So in terms of who’s likely to change Washington, I would say that his track record has not only not changed but is in the opposite direction.”
Former Senator Rick Santorum expressed the seriousness of the pro-life issue: “We need to make sure that we have someone who is unabashedly—not just pro-life—but unabashedly a fighter for life,” he said. “We are what we allow our society to do,” he said. “And if we allow our society to prey upon innocent human life, we are complicit with it.”
Congressman Ron Paul appeared via satellite feed after returning to Washington D.C. for a vote, and spoke on several issues including defunding Planned Parenthood and the importance of not relying solely on legislation to end abortion: “We cannot change the people’s morality by writing more laws.”
