Romney's Pro-Life Conversion: Myth or Reality? (June 14, 2007)
ABC News ^ | June 14, 2007 | RICK KLEIN and Jake Tapper

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has long cited a November 2004 meeting with a Harvard stem cell researcher as the moment that changed his long-held stance of supporting abortion rights to his current "pro-life" position opposing legal abortion.

But several actions Romney took mere months after that meeting call into question how deep-seated his conversion truly was.

In May 2005, Romney also declared his support for a House bill lifting President Bush's ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research -- a bill he now said he opposes.

Another lie by Mitt Romney, in the long list of Romney Lies, exposed.

It's really sad when it is the Left-wing ABC News that we need to rely on to get the straight scoop on Mitt Romney.

Since they have ignored the blow outs of 2006 and again in 2008 and ignored the Tea Party wake up call in 2010, Romney may be the best thing that's happened to the Republican party since Reagan.

If his candidacy can't put a stake through the heart of the rino insanity that rules the party and through the loyalty of those who follow it, nothing can.

Romney care paid for abortions.

That he is prolife is a myth.

Just like him being president is a myth.
