Many voters want to know that Mr. Romney will not compromise the lives of unborn children during tough budget negotiations, including in debates over the funding of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain. They also want to know that he will prioritize marriage and family in his administration.

The conventional wisdom holds that Mr. Santorum’s candidacy weakened Mr. Romney by drawing out the primary. But Mr. Santorum’s success can serve the nominee-in-waiting if he learns the right lessons. Perhap Mr. Romney already has, the latest New York Times poll has him up over Obama among women.

Conservative women are excited to hear more from Mr. Romney about his priorities and values. They, like all voters, seek a president able and unafraid to stand up for life and family.
