Mike Huckabee: Abortion Most Important Political Issue
GOP War on Women and Reproductive Rights will wage on through 2012, you betcha.
During an appearance at a pro-life fundraising event on Monday night, pro-life potential Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee confirmed that, for him, abortion is the most important political issue
“For me this is an issue that — as I’ve said before — it transcends all of the political issues,” he said. “I’ve often said I would gladly lose an election before I would ever yield on the issue of the sanctity of human life.”
At the event, held at the Knoxville Convention Center, the former Arkansas governor confirmed he is “seriously looking at” running for president again in 2012 and may do if only to “elevate the issue of life.” Palm Christian Ministry arranged the dinner, which gave Huckabee an opportunity to meet with top sponsors of the event beforehand, according to the News Sentinel newspaper.
