Rick Perry recently saw a movie, you guys, and it was so good that it changed his stance on abortion.
It wasn't just any movie, either. It was a movie produced by Oscar award winning producer Mike Huckabee, and Citizens United called The Gift Of Life.
Wait, we're sorry. Mike Huckabee isn't oscar award winning. In fact, he's just the former Arkansas governor and Natalie Portman Pregnancy Expert who once said, "Politics are totally directed by worldview. That's why when people say, 'We ought to separate politics from religion,' I say to separate the two is absolutely impossible."
So the movie was probably really impartial.
Anyway, Perry sees this flick and decided that ALL abortions shouldn't be allowed, even though he has been standing behind the idea that abortions in cases of rape and abuse should be treated differently.
Perry calls this a "transformation."
"You're seeing a transformation. It was … when the lady who was in (The Gift of Life) was looking me in the eye and said 'you really need to think this through.' She said 'I am the product of a rape' and she said 'my life is worth (it).' It was a powerful moment."
"All I can tell you was God was working on my heart."
Really? Swayed by one movie? That's all it takes for you to change a steadfast stance on something?
We wonder if his stance on oil tycoons changed after viewing The Muppets, or his stance on putting ideas into peoples' heads through dreams changed after watching Inception.
Regardless of your abortion stance, this totally sounds like a ploy to get conservative voters to support him.
