Have you noticed lately, that the so-called "front runner" presidential candidates haven't been doing as well as expected?
It was assumed that Rudy Giuliani would be a shoe-in, given his popular "America's mayor" status. That simply hasn't panned out in the first two states who've taken an actual vote (In Iowa, Rudy placed last and in Wyoming, Rudy did not receive any delegates to the national convention). That is in no small part, due to the much publicized campaign of Catholics Against Rudy and its coalition of pro-life bloggers (including yours truly).
But there is an equal threat to the pro-life movement in pretender, Mitt Romney. After spending the most money and time in Iowa, Romney's loss was in no small part, due to the newly formed American Right to Life and their ads exposing the Mitt Romney Fairy Tale which they ran in Iowa and plan to run a similiar one in South Carolina:
The power of the pro-life movement to bring down a candidate is evident in these two cases. This battle certainly isn't over yet. The question is: Will the pro-life movement equally use that power to unite behind one real pro-life candidate who can also appeal to the rest of the coalition and win over converts?
