Abortions for Some, Miniature American Flags for the Rest!


I’m not sure I’m the appropriate target for this anti-Romney hate spam, but I’ll dutifully pass along:

While rhetorician Mitt Romney charms his way through the 2012 Presidential Campaign, he is banking that you will believe what he “says” and not look to what his record demonstrates.

Let’s review his record regarding abortion under Romneycare:

  • Ø  On his 1994 campaign flyer, Romney lists “Retain a woman’s right to choose” as one of his foremost matters.
  • Ø  In 1994 the Boston Globe also reported Romney’s stance on the RU-486 abortion pill, quoting Romney as saying “I would favor having it available”.
  • Ø  During a debate in 1994, Romney stated “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country”. He further stated “I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it”.
  • Ø  Romney claimed in 2005 that while he was running for governor in 2002, was “personally pro-life” yet still had a pro-life “conversion” in 2004.
  • Ø  After his pro-life conversion based on embryonic stem cell research, Mitt stated that such research does not destroy human life, even though he believes life begins at conception and continued to support such research.
  • Ø  Mitt instituted a health care program in Massachusetts that includes a $50 co-pay for abortion at taxpayer’s expense, after his pro-life conversion.
  • Ø  Gave Planned Parenthood an instrumental role on the policy board in his Massachusetts healthcare plan, after his “pro-life conversion”.
  • Ø  Appointed a pro-choice judge, Matthew Nestor, to a lifetime appointment on a Massachusetts court, after his “pro-life conversion”.

Ooh, that smooth talking, baby killing Mitt Romney: We hates him so much!

I guess this is why so many people remain convinced that he can’t possibly win the GOP nomination. It’s sometimes argued that Senators make poor Presidential candidates because they have to engage in legislative compromise to the degree that they become poisonous to one constituency or another. In this cycle, it appears that governors are having the same problem on the Republican side; even Rick Perry is getting hit for pursuing the absolute minimum degree of relatively sane policies in order to make Texas function on a day-to-day basis. I suspect that Chris Christie will soon find himself subject to the Inquisition…
