Mitt Romney accepts Republican Nomination

Mitt Romney officially accepted the Republican Presidential nomination Thursday evening. In his acceptance speech on the final night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL, Romney echoed key points of the Republican platform including planks that support eliminating a woman's right to choose and banning same sex marriage by defending the "sanctity of life" and honoring "the institution of marriage." Romney also reaffirmed his commitment to repealing Obamacare, building the military, and promised to cut taxes while increasing government spending

The Romney-Ryan ticket was criticized earlier this month by the radical anti-choice organization Personhood USA for announcing it would support an exception for abortion in cases of rape and incest. However, Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan has an extreme anti-choice background including co-sponsoring a personhood bill at the federal level - the Sanctity of Human Life Act.
