Former California GOP Chairman Michael Schroeder put it well when asked about Governor Romney’s conversion on abortion:
If I have two candidates and one is against me on many things and another is a convert, I’ll go with the convert.
There has been much discussion lately on whether pro-lifers will just agree to disagree with Rudy on the issue of abortion. I can’t speak for the entire pro-life movement, but the answer is likely to be a resounding “no.” And why should we? After all, we have a proven pro-life convert in Governor Romney who is ready to defend life and tackle all the other key issues with an unmatched level of competency.
If it comes down to Rudy v. Romney, look for the pro-life movement to take Schroeder’s advice and gladly go with the convert.
