Mike Huckabee Calls Barack Obama Most Pro-Abortion President in History

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — In a new video he recorded to urge pro-life advocates to oppose the health care bill and its abortion funding provisions, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee calls President Barack Obama the most pro-abortion president in American history.

Huckabee, who remains one of the top three GOP prospects for 2012, said Obama is the “most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.”

“There is almost no person I can think of in an elected position who has had a more radical view of liberalized abortion policies than Barack Obama,” Huckabee added.

“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," Huckabee explained. "Most Democrats don’t support late-term abortion, he does."

The new video, called "Health Care Reform = Elective Abortions" appears on Huckabee’s political action committee’s web site.

Huckabee urged Americans to oppose the government-run health care bills pending in Congress because they have provisions “that guarantee that part of what will be covered will be elective abortions.”

“This is troubling to me,” Huckabee said. “I don’t want my tax dollars paying for the taking of the life of an unborn and perfectly innocent human being. That’s exactly what’ll happen.”

Huckabee, who was the governor of Arkansas and re-elected by that state to the position, also went after his former nemesis and likely 2012 opponent, Mitt Romney, saying that the health care plan Romney promoted and approved in Massachusetts also paid for abortions.

“Massachusetts is a great picture of what will happen nationally,” Huckabee says. “The Massachusetts model has been a total disaster. It’s been a disaster from a financial standpoint, [and is] about to bankrupt that state.”

“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.”

Huckabee says it could be worse under the Obama plan Congress is considering.

“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," he says.
