I don't agree with Ben on everything, but I do agree that right to life trumps all other issues.
While he may find fault with the GOP’s economic ideas, when it comes to the voting booth, there’s one thing at the top of actor and economist Ben Stein’s mind: the right to life.
Stein, a lawyer by trade and former speechwriter for Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, said the Democrats’ pro-abortion position meant it didn’t matter how much GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s economic ideas disagreed with his own.
“For me, the number one issue is right to life,” he said on PBS Thursday as reported by Politico. “I don’t think the Democrats are very good on the right-to-life issue. Well they pretty much turned the DNC into an abortion fest, their platform excludes any pro-life views, and their speakers are all abortion activists. So yeah, I'd say they couldn't be more pro-death.
“People who think of abortion as a reasonable method of birth control just are never going to get my vote.”
Stein had criticized Romney and VP candidate Paul Ryan, respectively, for a lack of economic strategy and too much faith in tax cuts.
