Mitt Romney: "We'll get rid of Planned Parenthood."

Kirkwood, MO (KSDK) - The republican race for the White House is moving to Missouri.

Mitt Romney stopped in Kirkwood, hoping to drum up support ahead of the state's caucuses this week.

Since Missouri's primary wasn't binding, Rick Santorum's win didn't actually get him any delegates. That means all 52 are still up for grab in the caucuses. And Mitt Romney cites elect-ability as one reason Missouri's republicans should choose him.

Mitt Romney calls his campaign "a battle for the soul of America."

One on one, he detailed his plan to lower gas prices.

"We're going to start drilling again in the gulf, we're going to drill in the outer continental shelf, we're going to drill in North Dakota, Oklahoma and Texas. That communicates to the world that there will be more supply coming from the U.S. And that affects the price of gasoline," said Romney.

As for ways to reduce debt, he suggests a few cuts.

"The test is pretty simple. Is the program so critical, it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? And on that basis of course you get rid of Obamacare, that's the easy one. Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. The subsidy for Amtrack, I'd eliminate that. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities," he said.

This was Romney's first public event in the Show Me state, so we wanted to know, does he say Missouri or Missourah?

"You know I've always said Missouri." He adds, "I know as I get to other parts of the state its Missourah. But I'll stick with Missouri 'cause that's what I know best," he said.

Romney also says he has yet to try toasted ravioli and gooey butter cake, but he'd like to.

The Arts builds communities. In Philadelphia alone, the city grew in 2010 for the first time in 50 years. Granted, by a hair, but still - the growing areas of the city that are becoming safe are also where the Arts flourish.

In the Republicans' make-believe fantasy world, they think that outlawing abortion will stop it, and outlawing birth control will make people practice abstinence unless they want to make a baby. If, in the event a woman has an unwanted pregnancy, she will carry the baby to term and give it up for adoption.

They really believe this is how things will go if they get their way. Unfortunately, this is the real world. This has never happened and it never will.

This is something the Right loves to do. They have cast her as a racist. From there they try to convince us that Planned Parenthood, as it exists today, is a racist institution.
