Even though former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has decided to fold his presidential primary tent this week and suspend his campaign, conservatives should not fold their issues into Romney's Etch-a-Sketch primary promises. The conservative movement in Ohio can take on a much more crucial role leading up to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. The political die is not necessarily cast for Mitt Romney yet, because he still has to garner the magic of 1,144 delegates needed to elect the Republican presidential nominee, and conservatives can also still work to assist Newt Gingrich's continuing primary efforts.

Yet, aside from Newt's campaign in the remaining primary states, conservative leaders and activists still have an opportunity to make certain conservative principles and right to life values are part of the presidential convention platform. At this moment in local and regional areas in Ohio, candidates are vying for a slot to be elected delegate to the national convention, and most likely those candidates are local and state elected officials.

Those elected officials should be approached at meetings, in caucuses, and in party organizational gatherings, be it in the Tea Party, or GOP and get guarantees that they will actively support right to life. Be clear and concise in defining what support means. Do not let these potential delegates etch-a-sketch their commitment by using lame excuses and go-along-to-get-along political dodges. Ohio delegates must stand firmly for life, fight for right to life in the platform, rally for life on the floor of the convention, and demonstrate for life in their convention seats.

There is still time to begin the process now. Be vocal, in the cities, the counties, as well as in social media. It is really quite simple, approach elected republican officials who are standing for election in the fall and are attending the national convention as a delegate must. Demand that they do the right thing for the life of the unborn.

If they do not stand for life, then conservative activists and voters must do the right thing and unselect them from their elected positions. This is not the time to be timid.

So, make a decision now to not give up, give in or throw in the towel, because Santorum has left the presidential race. It is only a speed bump in the electoral process. Remember, Ohio is a make or break presidential state. Whoever the GOP Presidential candidate is make him fight for the future unborn and their God given right to life!
