Anti-Choice Group Criticizes Romney, Cain For Failing to Sign Anti-Abortion Pledge
The Wall Street Journal - Washington Wire Blog: Anti-Abortion Group Calls Out Romney, Cain, by Patrick O'Connor:
A prominent group of abortion rights opponents called out former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former restaurant executive Herman Cain on Friday for failing to sign an antiabortion pledge.
The pledge calls on each of the Republicans running for the White House to promise to pick only abortion rights opponents for cabinet and high-level administration posts and to nominate judges who adhere to what the group sees as a strict interpretation of the Constitution.
Signing the pledge were Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. . . .
