Fred Thompson on abortion

According to CNSNews,

On "Meet the Press," Russert read Thompson the language of the Republican
"pro-life" plank and asked Thompson to state his position on it."This," said
Russert, "is the 2004 Republican Party platform, and here it is: 'We say the
unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be
infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution. We endorse
legislation to make it clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply
to unborn children. Our purpose is to have legislative and judicial protection
of that right against those who perform abortions.' Could you run as a candidate
on that platform, promising a human life amendment banning all abortions?""No,"
said Thompson.

Thompson believes each individual state should decide. While I think the states should be able to decide a lot of things, the killing of innocent babies is not one of them. I am also deeply concerned that Thompson doesn't seem to be concerned about his connection to a former convicted drug pusher. I will be removing the Thompson08 sticker from my car today and will be looking for a Romney or Huckabee sticker instead.

Be sure to do your research on Romney's stance on abortion. Sort by date, because he is notorious for switching views with the political weather.
Huckabee on the other hand has been consistent.
Go Check out
and goto the issues forum to read up on Mike.
Huckabee is the consistent conservative.
Go Mike!

Yes, I am a bit concerned about Romney's changing positions too. Do you think his new conservative positions are all just a smoke-screen and that he will change after the election? Or is he just a little slow in coming to the truth :-)

For the GOP's sake, I hope he is slow to learn the truth. From my perspective, I can not trust him. If he is nominated, I will vote for him, but I can't in good conscience vote for him in the primaries. I surely won't give to his campaign and do grassroots work foo him. I get sick just thinking about the prospects of a Rudy or Romney nomination.
