RE:       Watch What Happens: What Extreme Position Will Mitt Romney Take Tonight When Interviewed by Mike Huckabee? 

The last time Mitt Romney appeared on Mike Huckabee’s TV show, he came out in support of the extreme “personhood” amendment,

Since then, voters in Mississippi have defeated a “personhood” amendment by a double-digit margin, sending a strong message that even in a conservative Southern state, voters don’t want politicians to play politics with women’s health.

The question is, what out-of-the-mainstream position will Mitt Romney pledge to take tonight on Mike Huckabee’s show?

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund will be watching and live tweeting the Huckabee forum, as each candidate tries to show he is more extreme on women’s health than his fellow GOP presidential candidates.

@ppact will be using the hashtag #women2012 during the forum to remind the public that these candidates are way out of the mainstream on women’s health.

Highlighting critical women’s health issues and candidates positions is the basis for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Women are Watching, a campaign to educate, engage, and activate supporters across the country for the 2012 elections.

The campaign’s website: www.womenarewatching.org showcases women’s health “Chumps,” drawing attention to Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and others for their extreme positions on women’s health.
