In a very-well-accepted speech to the Republican convention, former Republican presidential candidate tagged pro-abortion President Barack Obama on issues ranging from is support for infanticide to his imposition of the HHS mandate violating the pro-life views of Catholics.

Huckabee said Obama “believes that human life is disposable and expendable at any time in the womb or even beyond the womb, and tells people of faith that they must bow their knees to the god of government and violate their faith and conscience in order to comply with what he calls health care.”

He continued:



The attack on my Catholic brothers and sisters is an attack on me. The Democrats have brought back the old dance the “Limbo” to see how low they can go in attempting to limit our ability to practice our faith

This isn’t a battle about contraceptives and Catholics, but of conscience and the Creator.

My concern is not Barack Obama’s past; my concern is for the future – not his future, but the future of my grandchildren.

President Obama is out of gas; Americans are out of patience, and our great Republic is almost out of time. It’s time we no longer lead from behind, but get off our behinds and leave something lasting for those who come after us instead of a mountain of debt and a pile of excuses.

Tonight, it’s not because we’re Republicans; it’s because we’re Americans that we proudly stand with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to say we will do better!
