Picture of nine babies
Can you tell which one of these babies had a rapist for a father, Mr. Romney?

Let’s not forget that former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, says he has always been pro-life and never admits he was “pro-choice.”  So, let’s keep his own definition in front of us, when we evaluate whether he has ever really changed.

Mitt Romney is actually crystal clear:

I am pro-life and believe that abortion should be limited to only instances of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.  

Try these similar non-positions held by politicians in the past:

I am pro-life and believe that gas-chambers should be limited to only Jewish shopkeepers and their families.

I am pro-freedom and believe that slavery should be limited to only blacks of inferior intelligence or those with the darkest skins.

I am vehemently against experimenting on children, except for those with ADHD or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

 

For the record, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich also believe in exceptions, and the latter is apparently willing, under certain circumstances, to have the federal government fund them.

  1. David, I’m firmly pro-choice, but I respect your position.  I have a hard time understanding the argument that abortion is murder, but it’s okay to murder the babies of rapists.  As for the position of another candidate, I’m sure you’ll be interested in hearing that on Piers Morgan’s show tonight, Herman Cain explained that he was against abortion in all cases, but then said he was pro-choice (without actually using the phrase).  He’s going to have a lot of explaining to do.
