David Ripley: Reflections on Romney’s Pro-life Position

June 20th, 2012 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

LifeNews is carrying an interesting guest opinion by Dr. Jack Willkie, the current president of Life Issues Institute. He acknowledges a certain skepticism about Mitt Romney’s pro-Life commitment and goes on to relate his experience with George Bush, Sr. following his installation as Reagan’s Vice-President.

Dr. Willkie writes about a lengthy meeting he held with Bush in 1980, during which he explained the scientific evidence demonstrating the humanity of preborn children from the moment of conception. He claims that this conversation resulted in a conversion by Bush, Sr. to a pro-Life position. In fact, Dr. Willkie claims that Bush ended the meeting with a commitment to support a state-by-state right to protect preborn children from the scourge of abortion.

He also describes a similar meeting between Mitt Romney and Dr. William Hurlbut when Governor Romney struggled with the issue embryonic stem cell research.
The article is well worth the read. Here is a link.

At the same time, one must confess that the issue of Romney’s sincerity on pro-Life issues is now largely moot. No person of conscience could possibly support Barack Obama’s re-election after considering the hateful and destructive record he has enthusiastically built over three-and-a-half years.

Still, the article by Willkie helps move pro-Lifers from a position of opposing Obama to one of supporting the de facto Republican nominee.
