Mitt Romney’s Stance on Abortion, from the National Pro-Life Alliance
National Pro Life Alliamce ^ | Apr 29, 2012 | Martin E. Fox

Posted on 05/02/2012 7:40:14 AM PDT by xzins

A recently released book on Mitt Romney clearly supports the importance of voting pro life. And how especially important it will be to elect real pro-life heroes in the U.S House and Senate.

Unfortunately, the case of Mitt Romney is typical of too many politicians.

It shows that you and I must never stop putting heat on all the politicians to support sweeping pro-life protections, because all too often their positions seem to change when, either as a candidate, or as an office holder, he or she believes that the prevailing wind has shifted.

Now I believe wholeheartedly in St. Paul’s “Road to Damascus” conversion, but I am not so sure we can really put much stock into “Road to the Presidency” conversions.

Just how many times should a candidate be allowed to change his position — and which conversion is real?

Especially on something so black and white as abortion.

Now, true pro-lifers like you and me can understand the conversion from pro-abortion to pro-life, but how do we explain the reverse? Yet that recent Mitt Romney book claims he decided to do just that during his ’94 bid to win the Massachusetts Senate.

After one pollster opined that a pro-life position would be a political liability for a statewide race in Massachusetts, Mitt decided to cast off his Church’s “burdensome pro-life position” and embrace wholeheartedly the Roe v. Wade position that legalized abortion-on-demand for the full nine months of pregnancy.

To seal the deal with the abortion lobby of Massachusetts he even sent Planned Parenthood a donation!

Then, during a debate with Ted Kennedy for Senate, Mitt Romney actually looked right into the camera and said, with full conviction, “I believe that Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years, that we should sustain and support it, and I sustain and support that law and the right of a woman to make that choice.”

Well . . . apparently Mitt had a pro-life change for the better 10 years later.

He credits a November 2004 meeting with a Harvard stem-cell researcher, while he was still Governor, as the moment that the scales fell from his eyes and he “realized” that the unborn needed his protection.

Yet, just how deep the change he had is still questionable.

Just months after his 2004 change of heart, he appointed a lifetime pro-abortion advocate to the Massachusetts bench.

Then, in 2005, after flopping around for a while on the issue of the so called “abortion pill” he flipped again, and finally came down on the wrong side — not only legalizing but expanding state subsidies to pay for even more abortions pills.

But I suppose the most worrisome insight into his true pro-life convictions occurred in 2006.

Mitt Romney, following his success in forcing RomneyCare on all Bay Staters, expanded abortion services in his bill, and required that the MassHealth Payment Policy Board always have one member appointed by Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts.

He shrugs off that part when questioned about the plan he set in motion.

God bless him if he really has converted. Every pro-lifer will have to decide that for themselves.

But it seems that for many politicians the timing always coincides with their run for political office.

That’s why it’s so vital we keep the pressure on Mr. Romney to support a full pro-life agenda, including the Life at Conception Act, all the way until November 6 and beyond.

Since so many candidates blow back and forth with the wind — right now — while the candidates are looking for votes — is the best time to make sure that the wind is blowing in our direction.

And given Mr. Romney’s tendency to sway with the political winds, it’s even more important that you, and other National Pro-Life Alliance members, insist that candidates you support for the U.S. House and Senate pledge to support and cosponsor the Life at Conception Act.

By supporting the Life at Conception Act as a candidate litmus test, we can improve the positions and the pro-life resolve of all the candidates.

Sincerely,

Martin E. Fox, President National Pro-Life Alliance.

ABORTION STOPS A BEATING HEART!

So the Mormon CEOs in SLC have control of what Willard does ???

Plus that “position” was not pro-life..

It is no abortions EXCEPT FOR

rape, incest, health of the mother or baby, or if the bishop has told the woman that during prayer the Mormon gods said to go ahead...

Hardly a PRO-LIFE “position”

No when the Mormon gods are PRO-ABORTION errr PRO-CHOICE...

He had been embracing abortion since before Roe V Wade...

at least back to 1970 THREE YEARS before abortion was LEGAL in the US...

Did other endorsements of Romney warrant breaking news?

It’s a position letter released by one of the nation’s major pro-life organizations. No different than any other major group announcing their support or lack thereof for Romney.

Just because it’s sort of anti-Romney doesn’t mean it isn’t major news

That's a false flag. There is an abundance of threads and resources on FR where this is argued ad naseum. IMO (and I am not alone or even in the minority for that matter) there is no lesser evil here. While 99% Obamao might govern 1% better than 100% Obamao, the permanent marginalization the Conservative movement more than offsets that paltry 1%. If you are so inclined, spare the "we need to keep the pressure on Romney to act Conservative" BS, Willard HATES Conservatives. Lets take the Senate and bump the House margin in 2012, 2016 or bust for the WH (no matter who is in it) beginning November 2012.

Like David, when confronted by God through Nathan for adultery and murder, put his life at the mercy of God for judgment. David’s firstborn son with Bathsheba, was called home after one week. His second son with Bathsheba was Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived and even though not the heir, became king.

America needs to follow David, and finally do what is right, not convenient.

I agree. Do what’s right.

I’m also reminded of Abraham’s nephew Lot looking on the good pasturage in the lowland plains and going to live in the cities of the plains.

Sodom and Gomorrah seemed inviting, but God’s man Abraham, resisted the ease of the plains, the sell-out of principle, the softness of living, and stayed in the rugged country of crags, mountains, difficulty and hardship.

He even had to save his nephew from marauders who frequented the plains.

And he had to plead for Lot’s life when God determined to destroy the cities of the plains for their moral depravity.

Rejecting women, the men of the plains determined they would have relations with the “men” who were visiting Lot, the same angels who blinded those homosexual hedonists and forced Lot out in flight to the mountains before God destroyed the cities with fire and brimstone.

The GOP with its Ann Coulter compromise — the so-called 3rd way, focus on riches and not on morality — is actually the way to destruction. It is a broad way that leads to destruction.

With Abraham in the mountains or with Lot in the plains.

The GOP has chosen the plains.

Vote Goode Not Evil (the lesser of evils is still evil)

As long as Romney is electable, his stances on Abortion along with other conservative ideals such as gun rights or homosexual marriage do not matter.

Electability is most important.

This is what Ive been told by more than a few FR folks.

Here's a funny....I saw a smashed etch-a-sketch on the side of the road today (Yes really).

I'm sure it was from someone else who has left the GOP..it's just too much of a coincident to see something that unusual just laying there on the street all of a sudden.

I'm thinking about sending a picture of it to the RNC...in an otherwise empty donation envelope.

Well it seems to me that Gingrich,waiting on Romney/GOP money to sellout and endorse Romney should be breaking news to the Gingrich only or be banned and go to hell- crowd. It should be posted as breaking news that Gingrich is a badly reformed RINO.Newt’s ego and fake moves to the right should be breaking news as well.

It is politics.Gingrich has a huge ego.It is all about money for all of them including Palin et al.When are people going to wake up and realize they need to gut the house and the senate if we want real change?Gingrich is as much of a reformed RINO as Romney.

So someone needs to post a thread in breaking news that Gingrich is a badly reformed RINO that all know darn well he will flinch regarding pro life if it suites his political needs and ego.I see Gingrich as no different than Romney.Yet Newt was crowned here just because he mentioned Palin as VP.He fooled all of you.That and that Palin is not running and will not magically be POTUS in a brokered convention should be breaking news.

But it won’t be.Just more bigotry of mormon hate under the guise of ‘we hate Romney’ (who is identical to Gingrich politically if not worse.)

Obama is inciting our country to be at war with each other.He is dangerous and if he wins re election you won’t be able to post on the internet about FALSE reformed RINOS like Gingrich.

From what I know of Mormons they are truly anti-abortion.

Just an aside. When I was being born in the 40’s for some reason my mother was having problems, it was only 5 months. My dad took her to the hospital, a Catholic hospital. The situation was grave.

The priest explained to my father that their policy was that if only one life could be saved it would be the baby. The mother had already had her chance at life and Baptism.

My father acknowledged the priest, picked my mother up in his arms and took her to the car in the parking lot and went to another, Non-Catholic hospital.

As it turns out we both survived although I had to live in an incubator for several weeks. My mother was probably already pregnant with my sister who was born 11 months after me when I came home from the hospital.

I’m not sure they had those 6 week waiting periods back then.

Newt should stay in and use pay-go for appearances.

His lousy numbers, however, tell us there are countless numbers of useful idiots out there, to whom a stellar conservative record of historic proportion— the only man known for eating democrats for breakfast when it was they who controlled both houses and the White House, meant nothing to them. So, now they have given us a socialist.

These yocals preferred the inept word wrangler, Santorum, who delivered nothing, ever, to advance conservatives, but for words, without accomplishments.

Obama is inciting our country to be at war with each other.He is dangerous and if he wins re election you won’t be able to post on the internet about FALSE reformed RINOS like Gingrich.

As opposed to "FALSE reformed RINOS" like Romney, I suppose...

From what I know of Mormons they are truly anti-abortion.
___________________________________________

Oh yes I sure they are in some cases...

They are just not PRO-LIFE..

They say its OK to have an abortion for rape, incest, health-of-mom, and if the bishop says that the Mormon gods say so..

IOW, compromise not only your principles but your morals and values as well.

I wonder how God would look upon that? Christians throwing their lot in with someone like MR. I imagine it won’t be favorable.

Mutt’s stance on abortion has always been directly over the murdered fetus.

I can’t believe we are not united to defeat Obama.

A liberal like Mittens cannot unite Conservatives. Backstabbers like Romney are the reason 3rd parties come into existence and eventually replace the morally decrepit and ethically compromised ones.

After the awful nose holding for Dole and McCain, Mitt was the one who broke the elephant's back.

The fact of a Romney candidacy is still a fresh wound for many conservatives. Hopefully they'll come to their senses by election day.

No matter who wins the election, one thing is certain.
A liberal will be the president.

The point at which life begins is defined by the State government in law in theses united States, NOT Washington.

Where Mitt stands on the issue is and should be irrelevant.

"The point at which life begins is defined by the State government in law.."
i think the USSupreme Court has declared differently.

"Where Mitt stands on the issue is and should be irrelevant."
yet it's not, as he will pick how many new justices?

Some young lady called here last week from the NSRC or some such-I stopped her mid-spiel with "sorry-if Romney is the nomineee then please don't bother me". Then I politely hung up.

She hasn't called back.

Show me where the state government gets to define when life begins?

For that matter, what does it have to do with Mitt being the author of $50 abortions?

He is. Case closed.

“Show me where the state government gets to define when life begins?”

Under the clause in your state Constitution authorizing a definition of murder.

Well that’s why they supported mitt and voted for him - they say he’s the one to defeat him. That’s his job now - he/others made sure no one else had the chance. So he’s on his own pitiful self w/o media support except bought off Fox and Drudge.

You are too late, that should have been six months ago, so we could all gather around a conservative and not a liberal. Wrong site for you to be looking for godless liberal votes.

Most of the well-known national “conservative” organizations have been taking money from Romney and his allies for years now.

They’re bought and paid for liars for Mitt.

Contrary to their prevarications, to this day Romney’s positions and policies deny the God-given nature of rights. He thinks certain classes of human beings can have their most important rights stripped away by a democratic vote.

He’s a pro-choice democrat, by definition.

Two pro-life groups endorse Romney

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/apr/12/two-pro-life-groups-endorse-romney/

GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney got back-to-back endorsements from prominent pro-life groups Thursday, signaling that anti-abortion forces will overlook his previous pro-choice positions in their shared desire to defeat President Obama in the general election.

The Susan B. Anthony List threw its support behind Mr. Romney in a morning news release and National Right-to-Life, the nation’s oldest and largest pro-life organization, followed suit with a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington.

In making the announcement, Anthony List leaders said that Mr. Obama has proven to be an extremist on the abortion issue during his first term in office and highlighted how Mr. Romney has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood, appoint only constitutionalist judges to the federal bench and bar nongovernment organizations that perform or promote abortions from receiving federal funding.

I just saw a picture of my newest grandchild today, it will be 9 weeks on Sunday, 1” long, could make out the head and limbs, the father was just staring at the monitor, the mother was crying with joy. It breaks my heart to think of anyone condoning the “killing” of this precious human being for whatever reason they may give. Romney wants to win a presidential election, that’s all he’s ever wanted. I want someone that cares about our country and all our people, living and yet to be born.

Violations against life do not determine the definition of life. They only determine when an intervention can be brought into the judicial system.

Likewise, a healthcare law does not determine what health is. It only determines when intervention can be paid for.
