(RTTNews) – Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, who is gaining in the polls, said Sunday that he believes that individual states should not be able to decide if abortions should be legal in their jurisdictions, adding that the right to life is a moral issue.
“If morality is the point here, and if it’s right or wrong, not just a political question, then you can’t have 50 different versions of what’s right and what’s wrong,” Huckabee said in an appearance on the “Fox News Sunday” program with Chris Wallace.
“For those of us for whom this is a moral question, you can’t simply have 50 different versions of what’s right,” the former Arkansas governor added.
As for his rival Fred Thompson’s endorsement from the National Right to Life Committee, Huckabee said he was puzzled by their choice.
“But my surprise was nothing compared to the surprise of people across America who had been faithful supporters of right to life,” Huckabee said.
“Fred’s never had a 100 percent record on right to life in his Senate career. The records reflect that. And he doesn’t support the human life amendment which is most amazing because that’s been a part of the Republican platform since 1980,” Huckabee said.
Thompson on Sunday said that Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision allowing abortion, should be overturned, but states should be able to decide whether to allow the procedure.
So Mr. Thompson… 50 different forms of abortion then, must be OK with you, right??
NRL: what’s wrong with you??
