WINTER PARK, FLORIDA, February 1, 2012, ( – On Saturday, Mitt Romney skipped his third pro-life campaign event hosted by Personhood USA, this time in Florida. Romney’s rivals Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum attended the event, which was simulcast on the organization’s website.

Romney chose not to attend after turning down requests to participate in Personhood USA’s Iowa Tele-Town Hall, and Personhood USA’s Live Presidential Prolife Forum in South Carolina.

While Ron Paul, who was not campaigning in Florida, also did not attend the Florida Personhood forum, he did attend the South Carolina event.


The Iowa Tele-Town Hall was attended by Santorum, Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry.

“Governor Romney was the only Republican presidential candidate who claimed to be pro-life, yet refused to sign Personhood USA’s Personhood Pledge, which quoted and affirmed the Republican Party Platform on abortion,” a press release from Personhood USA said.
