The EFM Feature

I haven’t followed every detail of the Georgia gubernatorial race, but Gov. Romney has endorsed former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, whom Gov. Palin has also endorsed, in the pending runoff. She’s going against former Congressman Nathan Deal, endorsed by Speaker Gingrich.
It’s odd to me to see Georgia Right to Life going hard against a candidate, according to Politico, largely because she isn’t against abortion in the case of rape or incest. That doesn’t seem to me to be the urgent life issue of our day.
I raise this because I wonder if this will not feed into the misguided “Romney isn’t really pro-life” meme. If it does, that strikes me as quite silly. If being for outlawing abortion even in the case of rape or incest is the standard for whether or not someone qualifies as being pro-life, we might as well give up the fight for life.
