Mike Huckabee Rips Obama, Mitt Romney on Abortion

Thursday, 06 Aug 2009 05:13 PM

The 2008 Republican presidential candidate-turned TV and radio personality says in a video on his web site, “For those of us who are principally pro-life, one of the most disturbing pieces of the legislation being proposed in the name of healthcare reform is anything but healthy to an unborn child.”

Mike Huckabee specifically objects to “the provision that almost guarantees that part of what will be covered will be elective abortion,” he says.

“Now this is troubling to me. … I don’t want my tax dollars paying for the taking of the life of an unborn and perfectly innocent human being.”

As for Obama, he “has already proven he is the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history,” Huckabee says.

“His position on this issue is far beyond most of the people in his own party. Most of the Democrats don’t support partial birth abortion. He does. Most Democrats don’t support late term abortion. He does.”

Huckabee goes further: “There’s almost no person I can think of in an elected position who has had a more radical view of liberalizing abortion policy than Barack Obama."

The former Arkansas governor also takes issue with Massachusetts’ healthcare plan, approved by Mitt Romney when he was governor in 2006.

“Massachusetts is a great picture of what will happen nationally,” Huckabee says. “The Massachusetts model has been a total disaster.”

Its biggest flaw: “It gives people the opportunity to have an abortion for a $50 co-pay,” he says. “So that’s all that a human life is worth now in Massachusetts - $50.”

It may be worse under the Obama plan, Huckabee says. “The federal government may pick up the entire cost of an elective abortion. Every principled pro-life person in this country ought to be in arms.”

Other abortion opponents are upset too. "This is a president who says he wants to reduce abortions," Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, told The Washington Post.

"But the actual policies that this administration is promoting will result in massive public subsidies for abortion and result in a massive increase in the number of abortions."
