BEDFORD, N.H. -- Fred Thompson fought back today against Mike Huckabee who accused Thompson of "cut and running" from important social issues.
On "Meet the Press" yesterday Thompson said he disagreed with the Republican Party's platform that called for a human life amendment. He said that while he was personally pro-life he wanted every state to decide for themselves on the issue.
"I don't believe I need to explain myself to the governor. It is clear that I am 100 percent pro-life. I have been pro-life all my career," said Thompson in live Fox News Channel interview in Bedford. "Governor Huckabee talks about this, I suppose, because it's the only conservative position he's got. Talk about sanctuary cities, he wanted to sanctuary a state in Arkansas. He's very weak on immigration policy. He was once of the highest taxing governors that we had in this country. "
