Huckabee Puts Abortion Front And Center In 2012 GOP Presidential Primary

If this religious nut becomes President in 2012, Roe v Wade will be a thing of the past before the end of his first year in office. The SCOTUS judges are just waiting for their opportunity to shoot it out of the water, anyway, just as soon as a Republican president can appoint another winger.

As a veteran of the abortion wars, it's no big surprise that Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is making reproductive rights the centerpiece of his (likely) 2012 presidential campaign.

"For me this is an issue that - as I've said before - it transcends all of the political issues," Huckabee told an anti-abortion crowd at a fundraiser the Center for Bioethical Reform. "I've often said I would gladly lose an election before I would ever yield on the issue of the sanctity of human life."

CNN notes that most other GOP contenders have thus far been tight-lipped about social issues. But they don't have their fingers on the pulse of their base. For instance, House Republicans who have spent a huge chunk of their first month in power dedicated to rolling back abortion rights. If Huckabee's competitors think they can rest on their laurels, they're probably mistaken.
