Bachmann’s convictions on marriage spring from her parents’ divorce

I always say I distinguish among a field of “pro-life” candidates based upon the level of their apparent convictions (which comes in part from personal experiences), and from their positions on other moral issues. For example, Huckabee won my support in 2008 because of his support for a national policy on covenant marriage and his support for laws that encourage homeschooling.

Well, Michele Bachmann gave a speech in Iowa where she talked about how her parents’ divorce influenced her (in that she sees divorce as bad), and her own miscarriage effected her pro-life views.
