Martinsburg, WV – Once again I am doing my best to make sure you are kept up to date with candidates’ positions as they enter the 2012 presidential election. This election could very well be one of the most important in America’s history and, for a number of reasons; conservatives need to be informed and ready to cast their vote. Below is some of the latest developments regarding where the current candidates stand on social and moral issues.
The Family Research Council (FRC) has compiled a very useful guide on where GOP candidates stand on a number of issues. Here are some of the highlights.
ABORTION: On the question of “Do you support or oppose taxpayer funding of abortions?” FRC has every one of the seven remaining Republican candidates listed as opposing direct taxpayer funding of abortions.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD: When it comes to providing taxpayer funding for the nation’s biggest abortion business, six of the seven Republican candidates are listed as opposing federal funding. Jon Huntsman’s position is listed as unknown — although he recently told Red State, likely after the guide was compiled, that he would veto any congressional legislation that contains Planned Parenthood funding.
