Most people understandably don’t tune in to politics until relatively close to the election. But with the presidential stakes as high as they are in 2012, more Americans are taking an earlier—and more intense—look than usual.

We know that President Barack Obama is joined at the hip to the Abortion Establishment, wedded to promoting abortion in every way he can, including most specifically ObamaCare. But what of the Republican candidates?

The comparison piece “Where do the candidates stand on life” is now available from National Right to Life, the authoritative source, at . There are nine candidates listed, all the announced candidates for the office of President of the United States who have scored a minimum of 3% in a national poll.

In addition to President Obama, the candidates include Congresswoman Michele Bachmann; Businessman Herman Cain; former Speaker Newt Gingrich; former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman; Congressman Ron Paul; former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty; former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former United States Senator Rick Santorum.

The comparison–based on public statements, statements from the campaigns, and/or statements appearing on websites–addresses the positions of the nine candidates on four issues: Taxpayer funding for abortion; Roe v. Wade/abortion; Funding for Abortion Providers; and ObamaCare.

If/when more candidates announce, their positions will be added.

Be sure to go to and see where the candidates stand.
