On Monday, Ron Paul became the fifth candidate to sign a pledge from Personhood USA. Signees agree that life begins at conception and that as president they would work to outlaw abortion at all stages of pregnancy:
I stand with President Ronald Reagan in supporting “the unalienable personhood of every American, from the moment of conception until natural death,” and with the Republican Party platform in affirming that I “support a human life amendment to the Constitution, and endorse legislation to make clear that the 14th Amendment protections apply to unborn children.”
Tuesday night, Personhood USA will hold a pro-life forum — via tele-town hall and radio — in Iowa. So far, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum are attending.
