It Looks Like We’ve Discovered Gloria Allred’s Romney-Bashing October Surprise
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/21/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 10/21/2012 12:33:51 PM PDT by Nachum

On Friday Drudge teased that far left sensationalist Gloria Allred was about to drop a bomb on the Romney Campaign.

Allred has a reputation of dragging perceived female victims in front of the camera as props to bash Republican candidates. In October 2010 Allred dragged out illegal alien Nicki Diaz to attack heartless Meg Whitman. Minaj was upset Whitman didn’t buy her child a present and claimed Meg took advantage of her despite the fact she made a good wage. In November 2011 she dragged out Sharon Bialek who accused Herman Cain of sexual abuse.

So it is likely this year’s October surprise is Carrel Hilton Sheldon, a former Mormon.

The book Horror Stories: Mitt Romney’s Shameful Record with Mormon Women details Mitt Romney’s “psychological intimidation and bullying” during his role as a Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The report describes how Romney “tried to bully” Carrel Hilton Sheldon when she was suffering through a difficult pregnancy into not having an abortion. AlterNet reported:

A far more ominous tale in the Romney canon also took place that summer, one that has been largely swept under the rug as the former governor of Massachusetts challenges incumbent Barack Obama for the presidency. There have been no songs written about it, no cartoons, no gags on late-night television, no magazine covers.

It was in August of that year, shortly after the Romney family returned from their vacation to Lake Huron, that a pregnant woman in her late 30s—Carrel Hilton Sheldon—was informed

I’m waiting for that November surprise....when Zero and Moochelle and the mother-in-law wake up on 7 Nov knowing that they can begin packing.

I think this COULD be the October surprise.
First, it comes from a person who has a real track record of doing election stunts like October surprises.

Second, since the (I believe) planned fake deal between BHusseinO and his Irani terrorist regime palsiewalsies is no longer credible (nobody would believe a word either of the two said),
the BHusseinO campaign needs an October surprise that some people WILL believe. If it does not involve BHusseinO, who the public is finally wise to as a serial liar, then the Surprise would be more widely believed and thusly more likely effective.

They’ve tried making up lies about Romney’s business dealings and the usual krap about his not caring about people, etc. Nothing has stuck. SO, why not try again with the “anti-female” thing? Nothing has been tried directly about that against Romney, but it worked (without any proof being offered) against Mr. Cain... so maybe unsubstantiated charges will work against Romney?

They have to come up with something. A faked “anti-woman” charge could be IT!

Yup. People can’t give friends personal advice?

Its pathetic the state to which the Obama campaign has been reduced to.

Last time, I heard it was a free country and by the way, Romney wasn’t holding elective office at the time.

The problem with dealing with Romney is that he has a very high moral character to start with. If there were issues with his marital fidelity it would have came out like five years ago when Romney did his first run at the Republican nomination.

He really doesn’t have any core beliefs.

Ok, maybe he is passionate about being pro-life and there are pro-life liberals.

Not everyone on the other side of the philosophical divide thinks killing babies is a good thing for our country.

And what’s wrong with that? If it flows from his religious beliefs, he has the right to give appropriate counsel to a friend. No - its not a capital offense as the Left would like to make it out to be.

Romney is ahead in the polls and yet you continue to say he can’t win. First it’s factually wrong. Second it serves no purpose but to discourage people from voting for Romney. That amounts to shilling for Obama in reality, whatever your intent.

"[Back at the hospital, a distraught Carrel Hilton Sheldon assented to her doctor's advice and terminated her life-threatening pregnancy.] "

I read the longer article on this. She was a mother of four children, one having died in infancy, and she was pregnant again. I don't recall seeing a mention of a husband or father of the children in the longer article. So where was the husband/father during all of this?

The woman had a large blood clot in her abdomen and the doctor said she would die if the pregnancy wasn’t terminated.

No.

She had a large blood clot and was given a overdose (gee wonder how that happened) of blood thinner. It also damaged her kidney.

This is what her doctor said, Sheldon’s doctor advised her that the overdose of Heparin might have also harmed her 8-week-old fetus and, given the possible fatal repercussions to her, he recommended that she abort her pregnancy.

When you parse that you discover that the baby was not a threat but that it might have been "harmed". So let's just kill it.

The abortion did not save her life. It did kill the baby though.

He was acting as a church bishop/leader. I am pretty sure that ANY Protestant minister, catholic priest, or any church leader would give similar advice. What did she want to hear? “Sure, go ahead kill it, you have the church’s blessing.” If this is it, it is a pathetic joke. Plus, how was she harmed, he gave her advice that she obviously sought, she didn’t listen, the baby is dead, and she has gone about her life. What the hell does she need with an attorney, going to sue God?

I hope this is the big surprise.It kinda confirms he’s pro-life - which will further energize his base.

This could possibly swing some undecideds in battleground states.We all *know* that this is gonna get covered bigtime by the lamestream media.

I never said Romney couldn’t win.

I have made it clear I think he will be our next President.

Now, its true in the summer, I was sure Obama would be re-elected but the first debate was a true game changer and to his credit, Romney has run an effective, error-less campaign.

Back in September, one wondered if he really wanted the job. Now it looks like he will get it.

If this is it, then the election is over. Welcome, President Romney.

A story that shows that Romney was pro-life 30 years ago, isn’t going to hurt him now, it will actually help shore up his pro-life stance now. He says he’s pro-life (despite his actions as governor that call that into question) and here is a story that lends credence to it.

Maybe O isn’t paying Gloria, maybe its Romney. Because the story helps him more than it hurts him. The only people scandalized by this are people who weren’t going to vote for him already.

So - did she have the abortion or not? Obviously she's still in the land of the living.

I know a young couple, Mormons, who were devastated when, with their fist pregnancy, the doctor told them tests showed the baby had “no brain”! He all but demanded they abort.

They prayed about it - they consulted with their bishop. They decided to trust God.

Twenty years later, their ‘brainless’ girl graduated with top honors from college.

Then there'e Sarah Palin. She and Todd knew little Trig's problem - but they decided to let him live - and they love him to pieces. (and BTW, they're not even Mormon.) The Mormon church is hardly the only faith that opts for life. If Glory-hound Gloria uses this angle, she's going to cement more people FOR Romney than against. There aren't many people who think it a crime for a bishop to advocate for the unborn.

Romney..that fiend, how dare he want to save a human life/sarc
I agree, if there was anything, ANYTHING the left had on Romney they would have brought it out when he was running for the Republican nomination. The left knew that Romney would be the one that would most likely beat Obama, that is why many people voted for Romney, not because they agreed with him on everything or even liked him, but because they knew that Obama could lose to him. This is the same Mitt Romney that doesn’t even drink caffeine for goodness sake! This is the best the left has on Romney..that he wanted to save a baby’s life oh the HORROR

I ain’t buying a word of it, but the best time for this trick was just before, or just after, Romney got the nomination.

It’s too late now. There is nothing this woman could say that would convince me to either stay at home, or vote for obama. Nothing.

The train wreck that obama is causing is far more serious than some whiney bitch dredged up by Allred.

Timing is everything, and even though the MSM will run with it, only those who are obamaites will buy it anyway.

They are scraping the bottom of the barrel.

"What did he do? Hold her down and cut her hair..."

LOL.

The article identifies Romney as the woman's Bishop, and she claims that Romney showed up uninvited at the hospital. It's obvious that somebody told Romney about her situation, so who was it? Dr. Williams, or someone else she knew? And if he hadn't gone to see her, what would they have said about him then? I guess we'd be reading an account of how heartless he is to women, because he didn't reach out to an LDS member who needed guidance and comfort in her time of need.

Let the lamestream media cover it..because anyone with an IQ above 5 knows that people who are pro choice don’t vote Republican anyway..people who love baby murder vote Democrat so Romney won’t lose any votes with this, in fact he could gain some votes from the pro life movement and also from people who think Allred is a disgusting worm

Spiritual advice is ADVICE, it isn’t forced. I take advice from many people when making choices. None of those advisors force me to take their advice.

That is what the flaw in the lib argument is here. People take advice from shrinks, psychologists, pastors, friends, and doctors.

The choice a person takes is that they are still free to make their own decision based on all the advice.

I meant no matter what position Romney takes - he can’t avoid being unfairly attacked for it.

In this case, it has nothing at all to do with politics. This as personal a decision as any one in life can make.

Its no secret I have my philosophical differences with the candidate of our party. But here, I think this attack on him is reprehensible.

Its a new low for the Democratic Party. I would think even Gloria Allred wouldn’t want touch it! Then again, the years have taught me when it comes to taking down their enemies, the Democrats have no scruples.

For them everything is political and that’s why Mitt Happens could well be crucified as a result of it.

For a second term, he will have to earn my vote as in the famous Barney commercial - “the old-fashioned way.”

So the article misleads us into thinking this woman’s problem was a life threatening clot.

It wasn’t.

It was the treatment for the clot - and she was given an overdose of heparin.

This put stress on her kidneys and may have damaged her eight week old fetus.

One member of the church advocated terminating right away.
Romney advoctated for the child pointing his own family’s situation and that you don’t have to be perfect to be worthy of life.

I’m glad to see Romney does not believe in eugenics

How lame this is Gloria.

Let's see here:

1. Murder a baby.....Mother wants that.

2. Let a baby live...Romney's Choice

Now looks like Mother is still living and so was in NO DANGER in the first place.

Where is the baby now, no mention of the baby? Must be fine as well, but mother must really HATE that baby for being here alive and making her rehash all this.

Hey Sweet Baby!! MOMMY hates you, never wanted you. Your mother is SICK. She "loves" all her other children, but not you, she wanted you DEAD.

Gloria, Gloria, this was a FAIL. Go sue yourself now for being an idiot.

Because the story helps him more than it hurts him.

I agree with you.

It may even help him among some so-called "pro-choice" people.

I know people who are personally against abortion (in fact some even agree it is a sin), but are still considered "pro-choice" because they simply don't want the government involved.

Such a story would appeal to those nominal "pro-choice" people because it is Romney acting in his religious capacity and showing compassion for the child.

This will backfire if they go with it.

No doubt Gloria has some ghosts... Go FIND THEM..
She is a menace.. paint a target on her back..
After all shes a lawyer.. it should be easy.. a commie?.. a radical of some sort?.. she protests TOO MUCH?..
