LifeSite news 31 Aug 2012
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney delivered his acceptance speech at the GOP convention Thursday night, laying out his vision for a Romney presidency. “Mr. Chairman, delegates. I accept your nomination for president of the United States of America,” Romney said. “I do so with humility, deeply moved by the trust you have placed in me. It is a great honor. It is an even greater responsibility.” In a speech focusing mainly on the country’s economic quandary and his own life history, Romney inserted a reference to social issues, pledging to protect life and marriage if made president. “As president, I will protect the sanctity of life. I will honor the institution of marriage.” In a reference to the HHS mandate, he said, “And I will guarantee America’s first liberty: the freedom of religion.”

Romney also touted his wife’s role as the mother of five boys, saying that even as he was working building his business, “I knew that her job as a mom was harder than mine. And I knew without question, that her job as a mom was a lot more important than mine.”
