Romney Not Right for This Catholic

I keep hearing that Romney is the best candidate because he can beat Obama...the polls says so.

But for me the President not only has to beat Obama but must also hold my values on Life issues as well. I know that it's been told to us again and again that "It's the economy stupid!"

Yes its the economy, I know, but I look at it from a deeper view. The economy yes, but in terms from a national view down to the core of the nation, namely the family and down further to the nucleus of the family the life of a child.

If you can't get it right at the nucleus, from the basic life of a child, from conception to birth, then you can't expect to fix anything beyond that. If we're going to fix the nation we have to start at it's foundation, the family and the life of a child. Abortion will have to be abolished.

That issue of how you view Life will determine what kind of society you have.

Marco Rubio bravely said words similar to this today.
Rubio: ‘America cannot truly fulfill its destiny unless’ it ends abortion   
“The issue of life is not a political issue, nor is it a policy issue, it is a definitional issue. It is a basic core issue that every society needs to answer,” he said. “The answer that you give to that issue ends up defining which kind of society you have.” 

It's what Santorum has said the same thing.

Romney too says he's pro-life, but his actions say something entirely different.

Romney Told Catholic Hospitals to Administer Abortion Pills  
The same day the Globe ran its editorial, Romney held a press conference. Now he said his legal counsel had advised him the new emergency contraception law did trump the 1975 conscience law.
“On that basis, I have instructed the Department of Public Health to follow the conclusion of my own legal counsel and to adopt that sounder view,” Romney said. “In my personal view, it’s the right thing for hospitals to provide information and access to emergency contraception to anyone who is a victim of rape.”
A true leader would have said: I will defend the First Amendment right of Catholics to freely exercise their religion — against those who would force them to participate in abortions — all the way to the Supreme Court.

For me Santorum is still the stronger Candidate as far as values in a President that I want elected. The GOP establishment says they want a win at all cost.

Honestly, I'll vote for Mitt if he ends up the nominee but as I said before, only while holding my nose.

I'm a Santorum supporter because he's the right candidate. I just don't trust Mitt with what he did in Massachusetts.
