The Republican presidential candidates will join a pro-life tele-town hall next week sponsored by several different organizations interested in the positions of the GOP hopefuls on abortion.

Three Republican candidates for the nation’s high office including Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Senator Rick Santorum, and Speaker Newt Gingrich have confirmed their participation in the Presidential Pro-Life Forum on Tuesday night at the 9:00 p.m. EST event.

The other GOP presidential candidates looking to defeat pro-abortion President Barack Obama have been extended invitations to join the three who have already confirmed.

“The 90-minute pro-life tele-town hall will feature the candidates discussing their views on the rights of the preborn and other issues of great importance to pro-life voters,” organizers said in an email LifeNews received. [related]

“Callers will have the opportunity to ask questions of the Presidential candidates and to give instant feedback to thoughts and ideas shared. The program will also be heard live on Steve Deace’s nationally-syndicated radio show on the Salem Network,” the email noted.

“This is a great opportunity to participate in an up close and personal evening with our Presidential candidates as they ask to be your advocate for life.  It is critical that the pro-life community rigorously examine the pro-life credentials and convictions of our candidates before e select a nominee.  With the Iowa caucus a week away, this is your opportunity to ask the tough questions and make sure that our nominee is the strongest pro-life advocate,” the email continued.

The national tele-town hall and radio simulcast will be hosted by several different groups including Personhood USA, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Coalition, Liberty Counsel, Bott Radio Network, Freedom Federation, Frederick Douglass Foundation, Champion the Vote, Oak Initiative, The Call, Georgia Right to Life, Rock for Life, and Iowa Right to Life.
