    “In light of that, Romney decided to run as a pro-choice candidate”

    “In light of that, Romney decided to run as a pro-choice candidate”

    Via Byron York, a preview of a book by Boston journalist Ronald Scott:

    According to Scott, Romney revealed that polling from Richard Wirthlin, Ronald Reagan’s former pollster whom Romney had hired for the ’94 campaign, showed it would be impossible for a pro-life candidate to win statewide office in Massachusetts. In light of that, Romney decided to run as a pro-choice candidate, pledging to support Roe v. Wade, while remaining personally pro-life.

    And Michele Bachmann chose to go after Newt, who had a 98% pro-life record?  The damage that woman did was enormous, and of course we now know why.

    Instead we may get a nominee with poll-driven conviction.  As of 2005 the polls apparently showed that being pro-life was necessary to run for President as a Republican, so he changed his mind.  Let’s hope the polls don’t change.

    “What makes Romney a conservative?”

    Well, he did say he was one. That’s the only proof I have seen. There sure is no proof from his actions or even in his speeches.

    So, lacking conviction, integrity and steadfastness in a candidate is now considered a GOOD thing?

    People are searching for reasons to explain Romney’s flip-flopping nature. It’s because the man has NO integrity or character. The man’s public persona is nothing but a pastiche of campaign talking points, carefully choreographed family pictures, and soundbites of self-made success, but it’s all artificial. Romney, like far too many people, at his core has an insatiable appetite for political power and prestige, and his utter lack of principles will be tolerated only if people choose to do so. Romney’s failings are hiding in plain sight for those willing to look.

    The Wade vs Roe decision had world wide ramifications. It is rare that a SCOTUS decision carries over internationally but this one did.

    Iirc many nations followed this judgement & abortions became legal .It certainly jumped the shark .

    Today the issue is almost only argued as in discrimination of female feotus & “The War on Femals” esp in India & china. But these countries will suffer the consequences of gender imbalance. If abortions were equal boy & girl then not much interest

    If you are interested – the medical procedure for early terminations & corrective “cleaning out the plumbing ” are identical. Cetainly in Australia they are given the same procedure number therefor no one really knows whohad what or what was who.

    And yes -its publicly funded although hospitals & staff eg Catholic need not provide these services.

    Hope this helps .

    […] to insiders in DC.  It is okay for Romney to have an abortion stand that blows in the wind, but as William Jacobson states, Bachmann nearly destroyed Newt for his less than pure, 98% anti-abortion rating. Why is no one […]
