"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

The Twelve Days of Clarity - Day Five - Protecting Innocent Life?

Many conservatives consider social issues when voting a candidate.  Did you ever wonder why the Contract with America contained no social issues when it was done to elect Republicans who are mostly conservative? Found it very strange but then when I realized that Newt Gingrich as Speaker had the final say, it made sense.  You will learn at the link below for Gingrich that he is not a big supporter of protecting innocent life unless it can buy him votes.  Mitt Romney has been all over the place and takes the side of where he can get votes which is detailed below.  Neither man has any core values when it comes to protecting innocent life.  The facts speak for themselves:

The Twelve Days of Clarity
Day Five
Protecting Innocent Life?

Which of the candidates, Gingrich, Perry, or Romney has actually done something about the protection of innocent life in the womb - rather than merely pontificating about it?

Can conservatives risk a candidate whose record is not clear on the matter of life?

Why would conservatives settle for anything less than one who has a real-world record of leadership in the defense of life as the chief executive of a State which is larger and more-diverse than many nations?

Among the 418 bills Newt Gingrich has co-sponsored with Nancy Pelosi there are a number of heinously anti-life bills.

Since February 2, 1994 Willard “Mitt” Romney has made at least 21 mutually-inconsistent statements on abortion. And it appears that his condemnation of a critical ad by Sam Brownback as completely false is itself false.

Social Issues

Rick Perry is a conservative of conviction, not of convenience. On the bedrock issues of life, marriage and the Second Amendment, Perry’s conservative values are clear and consistent, and his record backs up his rhetoric.
