Presidential candidates react to Joe Biden's statements on China's one child policy

H/T Joe

Candidate reactions in order of statement release:

Mitt Romney:
“China’s one-child policy is gruesome and barbaric. Vice President Biden’s acquiescence to such a policy should shock the conscience of every American. Instead of condoning the policy, Vice President Biden should have condemned it in the strongest possible terms. There can be no defense of a government that engages in compulsory sterilization and forced abortions in the name of population control.”
Rick Perry:
"China’s one child policy has led to the great human tragedy of forced abortions throughout China, and Vice President Biden’s refusal to ‘second-guess’ this horrendous policy demonstrates great moral indifference on the part of the Obama Administration. Americans value life, and we deserve leaders who will stand up against such inhumanity, not cast a blind eye."
Jon Huntsman:
"As an adoptive father, whose daughter was abandoned by her parents in China, Governor Huntsman is intimately familiar with the impact of China's "one-child" policy. As someone who is firmly pro-life, he feels the policy runs counter to the fundamental value of human life and is heartbroken by the destructive nature of the policy that has cost millions of lives."

China is proud of their extermination of 400,000,000 potential humans since 1970. By comparison, there are only 319 million US Citizens. An entire nation that has been wiped out.

Not only that, but the UNFPA, which supports China in their One Child policy, was defunded under GWBush but refunded by BHObama to the tune of $109 million. I guess BHO is not just satisfied with destroying an economy.

Glad to see Romney coming out with a statement first. Surprised that Huntsman was one of the first three. This policy by the Chinese is beyond barbaric. The fact that any politician can support this nonsense and get away with it is disgusting. Just sad.

I thought huntsman would be first, since his daughter is from China. And he used to be the ambassador. good to see Romney first out of the gate, and gov Mee Too Perry, seconding the motion.

Concerned Patriot,

Why are you surprised to see Huntsman come out with a statement so fast? He is intimately connected with this issue, and is strongly pro-life.
