if the woman says having the baby would make her sad or depressed, that counts as a “health” risk.
Romney is as pro-life as Margaret Sanger
That was the loophole that Reagan accepted in 1968.
Now, 44 years later, Romney has no excuse to not know about how that loophole is used.
And he hasn’t even been nominated yet.
Probably the only thing I could ever agree with Ted Kennedy about is when he said Romney was neither pro-life nor pro-choice. He’s “multiple-choice”
Notice that Romney is starting to promote RomneyCare and now this about Abortion all within a weeks time - Once he seals the nomination officially he will turn to the left not the usual middle that most nominees do in the general but LEFT as his mask starts to come off
This may also be an attempt to distract social conservatives from the Romney/GOP-E attempt at the convention to disembowel the GOP party rules to allow replacement of popularly elected delegates by the appointment od GOP-E RINO donors and permanent mushball commentariat types. These replacements would occur because the candidate says so and hot because the delegate resigns. Folks, they are stealing the party out from under us. They have not yet gotten over the fact that GOP voters chose Ronaldus Maximus instead of George Herbert Walker Bush in 1980.
Romney doesn’t bother to hide that he has no use for conservatives, thinking he can lose us and still find a parade. Curious he contacts first the NYT, reportedly, to announce a Rules compromise had been reached, before informing the delegates themselves. Malkin’s blog guest mentioned this and hotair has the NYT story up, while Rule 12 hangs in the balance yet, as I understand it.
"My position has been clear throughout this campaign," Romney said. "I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother."
It's either elect Romney or re-elect a President who has a record as one of the country's absolute worst extremists on abortion, a man who actively supported partial birth abortion when an IL State Senator and who currently now promotes perversion by speaking out in favor of gay marriage and federally funded contraception/sterilization.
I know who I'm picking.
Romney is as pro-life as Margaret Sanger"Romney" means winding river. It's appropriate. One never gets a straight stance out of him.
You are either on the side of the baby, or you are on the side of Satan.
Romney can teach a cat how to sit on a fence.
As always, GeronL, you've nailed this issue succinctly.
Illinois senator Barack Obama co-sponsored a bill which allows the abortionist to kill the baby if it is born alive during a late term abortion. To me nothing is more extreme than Obama’s position on abortion.
His answer for almost any occasion
Romney is behaving like a snake in grass. I don’t like it one bit. Also just came from seeing “2016”. Have you seen it yet?
isn’t there more than one rule change being attempted too?
Governor Mitt Romney: Im proud of my faith. There is nothing I distance myself from. There are Mormons in the leadership of my Church who are pro-choice, and they do not violate that. Youre not a lawyer, but you have to read that a little bit more carefully.
By the way, people forget that Mitt Romney IS a lawyer.
This is the end, beautiful friend, the end...
Yeah Rule 12 is still in place: where the RNC can change the primary rules at any time without delegates input or knowledge instead of every 4 years at the convention.
Jeb Bush sees a potential grassroots candidate in 2020 as a threat? Well, his buddies in RNC will just change the rules to make it more difficult for that poor fellow, President Romney feels that Sarah might challenge him in 2016? His friends will rigged the prinary process before any delegates can have a say so
Thanks for the link. Isn’t PP about to spend millions attacking Romney? He’s so predictable.... And like you say, health means anything from the sniffles to blemish issues, and women know that. In a word (regarding those defenseless), Mitt’s a bum; just ask Seamus.
No matter how badly milt botches this election, the GOPe will just blame poor old Akin.
Gee, it’s hard to believe that Governor Palin isn’t welcome at the Mitt Romney convention.
When was the last time the second biggest leader in the GOP was banned from the convention?
Ain’t that the truth? If it wasn’t so painful, it would be funny.
Originally read about rule 12 and 15. Then read of compromise on a couple of others. I can’t find anything official on conclusions, but last post on malkin’s site indicates 12 hangs out there yet.
The word, “overturned”, or “axed” has not been applied anywhere.
Maybe Romney is the false prophet to Ovomits anti-christ? Given that LDS believe in their modern day prophets, that would be somehow appropriate.
I honestly don’t know what to do at this point, other than vote for conservative Congresscritters and think about ignoring the vote for president. I have never trusted Romney, and I am having my concerns pretty much affirmed.
Obama is worse, of course, but to vote for someone solely because there is a miniscule chance that the economy could turn around and that he might support Israel, but knowing where he stands on Romneycare and on abortion, doesn’t seem to me to be a good alternative.
Them there Mayans and survivalists may have it right.
Romney is Pro Abortion!
Am I supposed to be surprised? Must’ve missed the memo. This was sickeningly predictable. Romney’s lips are moving, but all I hear is the sound of an Etch-A-Sketch shaking.
Check out michelemalkin.com for a running account of tonight’s delegate scramble, for coherent coverage. You both retain what you read better than I on details. Cspan will be covering the Rules vote in the morning.
Zero isn't the anti-Christ. The Book of Revelation says the Antichrist is given power to 'make war with the saints, and overcome them' (Rev 13:7). Zero has no chance to overcome the saints. We're wise to him.
However, it appears that a significant number of saints have already willingly surrendered to Romney. Which is a crying shame.
I'm not suggesting that Mitt Romney is the Antichrist. So don't assume that. But I am suggesting that he's at least as dangerous in his beliefs as Obama -- and perhaps more so because he claims to be a conservative. Which he clearly isn't.
That’s why I refuse to support Romney. Not giving any money to RINOs. The most I can do is go to Google and click on Obama’s (pay per click) ads over and over again to rake up the charges.
Mitt Romney doesn't seem to be a big abortion supporter in his own life. Reality is this: many Americans of all political stripes are fornicators. They get pregnant and have to get rid of their "mistake". They NEED abortion.
There isn't a politician in existence who can take away their right to fornicate or, in this era, their right to abort. Is what it is. Instead of slamming Romney we should cry out with Isaiah: "I am a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips."
Romney and his people have always said that position was Reagan being pro-choice. So according to his own definition, Romney has always said he was pro-choice. Except when he said he had never said he was pro-choice.
Romney is against abortion for Mormons.
Romney has excommunicated Mormons for doing things that do not serve the cult.
Mitt Romney has excommunicated Mormons, for having abortions.
And what would you say to a woman who has a tubal pregnancy???
that has already been decided...you are behind the curve. The conservatives seemed happy with the outcome
and what do you say to a woman who has a tubal pregnancy?
Fornicators have a right to murder? Wow. Learn somethin’ new every day around here.
Romney is not our problem.
WE are our problem, or did you miss that in my post?
When you are in the process of being given over, as a society, to your own stubborn devices you best take what graces you can. If Balaam’s ass (Romney) is nice enough to block your way to destruction even for a moment, you’d best be grateful.
Grateful to a leader within an anti-Christian cult?
You are quite far out there, my friend.
Even though Romney may well be an ass, he is more like Balaam himself than the talking donkey.
“Romney is as pro-life as Margaret Sanger”
~ ~ ~
Exceptions in three cases but the baby is still a baby?Voting for Romney is a mortal sin on your soul folks.
You can’t say you didn’t know.
Have you ever watched the Mick Wallace interview with
Margaret Sanger on Youtube? Wallace has a cig in one hand and stumps her with moral and pro-life questions. She sounds so hollow in response.
Vote for a liberal and get liberal SC justices...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
You ABO’s go ahead and vote party over principle but please just stop calling yourselves Conservatives you are giving the rest of us a bad name..
Romney’s Akin moment. Health of the mother is very open to interpetation! No pro-lifer says that. That’s what the Planned Parenthood types say.
Romney campaign slogan should be HOPE & CHANGE. Vote him in and HOPE he CHANGES. He is and always has been a liberal.
Man, you all are putty in the hands of the msm. They want to divide us and you are only too willing to oblige.
