MassResistance.com ^ | Feb. 17, 2012 | Amy L. Contrada

The real record on:

•His unconstitutional implementation of "gay marriage" •His failure to check judicial activism while simultaneously preaching against it •His weak argument for traditional marriage •His weak leadership in Massachusetts during the "gay marriage" crisis •His his record on abortion •His flip-flops on "emergency contraception" (morning-after pill) and Catholic Hospitals •RomneyCare, abortions, and mandated contraception coverage •His phony abstinence program in the schools •His phony defense of Catholic Charities in the homosexual adoptions scandal

People say that Mitt Romney is a flip-flopper. I think that’s very unjust. I think he’s been a very consistent politician. He consistently works both sides of the street on the same issue. He is consistently cynical and expedient and self-serving. - C. J. Doyle, President of Catholic Action League of Massachusetts, quoted in LifeSite News

ROMNEY CLAIMED: He “successfully prohibited out-of-state couples from coming to our state to get married and then go home. On my watch, we fought hard and prevented Massachusetts from becoming the Las Vegas of gay marriage.”

The TRUTH: The regulations his office drew up had loopholes allowing for lax enforcement, and Gov. Romney said that the Commonwealth would not pursue couples who broke the law.

From the article:

ROMNEY CLAIMED: “I fought for abstinence education in our public schools.”

The TRUTH: It was not an “abstinence only” approach; it did not say “wait until marriage”; it was “LGBT-friendly”; it lasted only two years; it included “peer teaching” by 12-14 year olds; and it was limited to very few middle schools in the state.
