LifeNews has reported that Mitt Romney said “As President I will Protect the Sanctity of Human Life".
"Mitt Romney made the pledge Thursday night during his GOP presidential nomination acceptance speech that pro-life Americans wanted to hear. Romney not only promised he would be a pro-life president but said he would affirm the freedom of religion that has been under attack by the Obama pro-abortion HHS mandate.
“As president, I will protect the sanctity of life. I will honor the institution of marriage. And I will guarantee America’s first liberty: the freedom of religion,” he said."
Can you imagine a Canadian politician, standing on a podium, in front of an election, speaking to millions of people, boldly saying, that he or she "will protect the sanctity of life"?
Can you imagine any of our political leaders doing that? Can you imagine Stephen Harper saying that? How about Dalton Mcguinty? What about Bob Rae or Tim Hudak? Nope, I can't either.
What about the rest of Canada, do they have a party leader who would stand up and tell us that they will "protect the sanctity of life"? I don't know, if there is one, I'd sure like to know who they are.
Maybe the next leader of the Federal Conservatives will stand up and say that. Or who knows, maybe even the next leader of the Liberals will stand up and say that. Don't laugh.
If Mr. Harper, who many used to think was pro-life, can turn his back on the pre-born amongst us, then surely a Liberal who nobody would ever expect to be pro-life, could surprise us all and say he or she would support the sanctity of life. It could happen.
And then something even weirder could happen. Social Conservatives might finally have someone they can vote for. And it won't be a Conservative.
