Mike Huckabee: Never yield on the issue of the Sanctity of Human Life

Mike Huckabee spent his Valentines evening talking with pro-life supporters about the need to stand firm on the Life issue. Mike Huckabee was the keynote speaker at the Center for Bioethical Reform fundraiser held at the Knoxville Convention Center. He was there to help raise money and encourage those who are fighting for the life issue. He was not deterred by either Mitch Daniels' truce statement or the protesters who came to march against the event.

Mike Huckabee got into politics because of the Life issue. He has stayed on message for over a decade. Mona Nair, a reporter from WATE, posted an article regarding the event where Huckabee stated,
"Life is really precious, life is God's creation. We don't have a right to interrupt a process He has started."

Protesters did not like the vivid abortion pictures displayed around campus. The Director of CBR, Fletcher Armstrong said,
"the goal of CBR is to target 50 major college campuses, about 700,000 students, with their message."

"Our organization goes to campuses and shows them pictures of what the injustices of abortion looks like," said Armstrong.

In regards to the protesters Huckabee said,
"he was happy to see the protesters, because they represent our freedom of speech in America."

When asked if he was going to run in 2012, Huckabee gave a more affirming answer stating,
he is "seriously looking at" running for president again in 2012 and one reason is so he can "elevate the issue of life."

Watch Video @ WATE:


Both Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh have gone after Mitch Daniels for his truce statement, emphasizing that we still need to highlight the social conservative issues facing our country.

Check out this audio at the Right Scoop where Mark Levin "talks about conservatism and why people like Daniels should embrace all conservatives and not tell them to check their social issues at the door." Matt Lewis at Politics Daily highlighted Limbaugh's angst with Mitch Daniels' CPAC speech, "Social conservatives were dissed again at CPAC," said Limbaugh. "The problem with CPAC," said Limbaugh, is "the principles are now up for grabs."




Well, we won't have that problem with a President Mike Huckabee who is not afraid to stand firm on the hot button political issues facing our country. Mike Huckabee stands on principle and has stated consistently and firmly that "Every human life has intrinsic value and worth."

I'm a part of CBR Sweden (an organization loosely affiliated with CBR), I have done these kinds of demonstrations, although we demonstrate on market squares.

Glad to see Huckabee knows what it takes to fight abortion! :)

Keep up the good work JohnG. We need to keep changing hearts and minds on this issue.

Ann,

Which potential 2012 candidates have been avoiding the pro-life issue?

Barbour, Daniels, Romney

Lip service does not change hearts and minds.

Deplorable blogs like this won't change hearts or minds in your favor either. You are insinuating that Daniels (and Romney and Barbour) does not believe "Every human life has intrinsic value and worth."

Yet Daniels has a 100% pro-life record. Your fire bomb throwing rhetoric will only alienate people who aren't 100% in agreement with you. Since the numbers in the US who are opposed to 100% of all forms of abortion are a small minority, your methods continually prove to be self destructive.

Giving credit where it is due, to the likes of Daniels and McCain who have staunchly pro-life credentials would help build momentum to reducing abortion numbers. But because they aren't the flavor of republican that SoCons like, they won't get your votes. Just like Deace voted for Obama over McCain.

DanL, I have written two articles on this truce issue.

1. A Values Vision for America

2. Instead of a Truce, Let's sit down and find Common Ground

If we put the pro-life issue on the back burner, it means it is off limits for discussion. Legislation that can be passed at the state and federal level will be off limits if we call a truce.

I think it is better to educate people now on the harm of abortion. I think it is better now to write and pass legislation that will limit abortion.

I know that Daniels has a good pro-life record. But I disagree with the way he is handling his opportunity to share that record.

If we call a truce, how does legislation like this get passed?

House Votes This Week on De-Funding Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

I trust the GOP to emphasize our economic crisis while also sticking with the pro-life plank of the Republican platform.

TexCon,

I just read through the articles you linked from your blog. I would agree with your approach to limiting abortions. I find nothing to disagree over the measures you advocate in your #2 link.

But the timbre of this post is still that Daniels does not value life. It also comes across as a very cynical maneuver on your part to garner support for your candidate, Huckabee, by marginalizing another candidate with sterling pro-life credentials.

So according to you TC, you have to be born pro-life you can't just come around?

That's not a very good policy to try and win people over.

IM GLAD HUCKABEE'S NOT AFRAID TO STAND AGAINST ABORTION AND BEING PRO-LIFE, BUT WHAT ABOUT NOT BEING AFRAID TO KEEP CRIMINALS IN PRISONS TO SERVE THEIR TIME, AND NOT CALLING FOR THE RELEASE OF CONVICTED SPIES?

ConMan said...

TC,

"Barbour, Daniels, Romney

Lip service does not change hearts and minds."

That's one of the most ridiculous statements I've read from you. Do they need to be ordained ministers to come into your favor?

It's because of this kind of in your face mentality, huckabee will never be the nominee.
