Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney emphasized his anti-abortion rights and anti-gay marriage positions in a videotaped message to the Values Voter summit Friday in Washington.

“We need a president who shares our commitment to conservative principles and our respect for traditional values,” Romney said. “We will uphold the sanctity of life, not abandoned or ignore it and we will defend marriage, not try to redefine it.”

Romney went on to argue that “culture matters,” pointing to a Brookings Institution survey often cited by former rival Rick Santorum on the campaign trail that found families who waited to have children after they got married were less likely to be poor.
