All four of the current participants have signed Personhood USA’s Personhood Republican Presidential Pledge, promising to “advance state and federal laws and amendments that recognize the unalienable right to life of all human beings as persons at every stage of development.”
“The upcoming election crucial for the lives and futures of millions of children,” said Personhood USA President Keith Mason. “If you believe, as we do, that the battle for the lives of the preborn is the most pressing issue of our day, and you have questions for the candidates, this event is your opportunity to get the answers you deserve.”
