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!

And one significant group disagrees with them, apparently.

If Romney were so “pro-life”, then don’t you think all groups would have easily seen that?

The truth is in the record, and the record is reprised in the letter that is this article.

Romney has gone back and forth depending on the time of day. He is certifiably unreliable regarding life, and when he had a chance to govern, he governed as a pro-abortionist. The $50 abortion is his handiwork.

I have heard, but I have not yet verified, that Romney had provided significant contributions to each of those organizations that endorsed him. If I find that a link to it, I’ll post it.

we are going to throw the election “shoeless joe jackson” style it appears. I can’t believe we are not united to defeat Obama.

If every single FReeper cast his/her vote for Romney, it'll register not even a blip on the screen. Romney has no chance in November, and the GOP-e never envisioned victory anyway. Its sights are trained on holding the House and maybe getting close in the Senate. The Presidential race has been sacrificed on the altar of small gains.

I want someone that cares about our country and all our people, living and yet to be born.

Virgil Goode, Constitution Party, is that candidate. Goode cares about the living and yet to be born EVERY day, not just when his political calendar allows (a la Romney).

Mitt is a consummate phony. We have a real problem here. I will not vote.

Rather than not voting, consider supporting Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party -- he's a candidate whose opposition to abortion hasn't waivered.

Mitt’s stance on abortion is a wide stance.

Thank you! Was told my son couldn’t stop staring at the monitor and his wife started to cry. Life is so incredibly precious and brings so much joy to so many.

You misspoke there pall, and in the process also inferred a logical misnomer.

Your right life begins at conception from a scientific point of view, but the different between killing and murder is a moral judgement that has always been made in terms of law by the State.

As for healthcare and your misspoken words, I’m sure your well aware that the Government is not the only thing capable of buying services(Intervention) that might be regarded as “for your health”.

Indeed government is among the most irresponsible buyers in that respect.

Nice try, but no cigar, as they say. The article does NOT say Romney contributed to the two major pro-life organizations who endorsed him: National Right-to-Life, the nation’s oldest and largest pro-life organization, and Susan B. Anthony List.

“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.”

Pro-life is a misnomer. I'm Pro-Life. Many people who say they are Pro-life are NOT.... they are merely anti-abortion. How can one be Pro-life and believe in the death penalty? Thank God DNA Testing has removed hundreds of innocent people from Death Row who were wrongly convicted by over zealous juries who wanted to do their part to alleviate society of criminals and crime. My cousin was one of those whose conviction was overturned by DNA evidence. The Old Testament taught the Death Penalty but Jesus Christ has redeemed us from "the Law of Sin and Death". Romans 8:2

Welcome, Nube.

A pre-born baby has committed no crime and has had no due process of law. Capital punishment AND Life are both spelled out in both the Constitution and unlike you, the Founders saw no contradiction.

There is no contradiction.

The right to life is, in fact, injured when murder is permitted via imcomplete response. In the same way that ownership would be injured by minimally punishing thieves, so life is injured by minimally punishing those who murder.

I find it beyond strange, innovative, that of all these pro-life candidates, these 2 organizations could only endorse two men, and one of them is a life long pro-abortionist.

This particular pro-life group in this article makes much more sense. They detail the record and conclude they don’t buy is conversion, so IF a pro-life citizen chooses to vote for Romney, then they should do so knowing they are putting an abortionite in office.

That’s perfectly reasonable to me.

Let’s not pretend. Let’s just admit that we are voting for an abortionite. At least in regard to honesty, we’ll be portraying a bit of integrity.

How can one be Pro-life and believe in the death penalty?

Hey, I believe in the death penalty for abortionists. How about that?

If you truly value life, then the correct punishment for taking a life is to surrender your own. Hey Noob, we are all sentenced to death merely by the virtue of our birth. No one escapes that penalty.

I find that Dennis Prager's take on this is the same as mine. If you take a life, then there is no person on earth left to forgive you for the sin you committed against that person. I cannot forgive you if you take someone else's life. I have no standing to grant you mercy. Only God and your victim can forgive you and IMHO the sooner you go to meet God, the quicker you can ask the person you killed for forgiveness.

Anyone who truly values life should believe in the death penalty. To allow a murderer to continue to live and breathe is to deny justice to his victim and to demean the life he took.

A little food for thought noob.

So what is you point? Romney says he is now pro-life. O bam the Kenyan Marxist and his pals think over population is a huge problem. The Kenyan has never been pro-lie, never said he was, never said he will be. He is fine with partial birth abortion. I’ll take the had with a pair of jacks rather than the hand with a 3 8 off suit.
