Mitt Romney, Pro-Life CHAMPION!

TMZ has learned Mitt Romney’s son Tagg — who had twins this year through a surrogate — signed an agreement that gave the surrogate, as well as Tagg and his wife, the right to abort the fetuses in non-life threatening situations … and Mitt Romney covered some of the expenses connected with the arrangement.

When you stand next to Mitt, you can actually feel the heat of his burning, newfound concern for innocent human life. He totally takes seriously the concerns of prolifers and they are wise to trust him. Any prolifer who says we should be putting intense heat and pressure on him now since this is our one and only shot at forcing this piece of moral jelly into something like a commtment to our cause is actually an Obama supporter who must be denounced because it’s way more important that Romney win than that we lose his burning love for us at this crucial moment in the campaign. Once he has power, he will surely love us. And if he doesn’t, it will be because uppity prolifers didn’t trust him enough during the campaign and they alienated him just when he was on the brink of really starting to care about us. Maybe, in four years, if we don’t make any demands and support all his policies, we’ll win back his love and he will start to care then.

Meanwhile, back in the reality-based portion of actual conservatism, here’s Why We Criticize Mitt.

  • Paul

    To be fair this is his son. He can’t control him. There’s enough to be wary of without this.

    • Mark Shea

      Perhaps you missed the part about him financially underwriting this?

      Anyone who believes his claims to be prolife is a sucker.

  • http://www.chesterton.org Sean P. Dailey

    Where’s the Mitt story in the TMZ link?

    • Mark Shea

      ? He helped underwrite the arrangement.

    • http://www.chesterton.org Sean P. Dailey

      Well that’s weird. The link does not work on a smart phone, but does work on a desktop. When I clicked it on my smart phone, the link took me to a list of stories about Justin Bieber, Kanya West, and the Emmys.

      Nice that Trig Romney (or is that Tagg Palin? I am never sure) had daddy pay for that arrangement. Wrong in so many ways.

    Mitt is the lesser of 2 evils compared to Obama. He did have a strong pro life record as governor and will rescind the HHS mandate

      • Richard Johnson

        Massachusetts Citizens for Life…the same folks who call Scott Brown a pro-life candidate???
        They say:
        Massachusetts Citizens For Life Executive Director Marie Sturgis: “Having Governor Romney in the corner office for the last four years has been one of the strongest assets the pro-life movement has had in Massachusetts.” (Kathryn Jean Lopez, “An Early Massachusetts Primary,” National Review, 1/10/07)
        Massachusetts Citizens For Life Pioneer Valley Chapter Chairman Kevin Jourdain: “Mitt Romney was a great Governor, who served with honor and distinction. But most importantly, he was a pro-life Governor. He vetoed a number of pro-abortion pieces of legislation and made many pro-life appointments. He was always there for us.”

        Who do you believe? Massachusetts Citizens for Life words about Romney or Romney’s own words and actions?

        • Karla

          Romney used to be pro abortion and he had a conversion like many have to the pro life side

          • Mark Shea

            He has had no conversion. That’s the point.

            • Fiestamom

              Why not pray for Romney’s pro life conversion? Why not ask others to pray for his conversion?

              • Mark Shea

                I do. Part of doing that is acknowledging he needs it instead of pretending he doesn’t.

  • http://davidgriffey.blogspot.com/ Dave G.

    What’s TMZ? I’ve not read anything from that before.

    • Thomas R

      I think basically they’re a celebrity news deal. They’re apparently known for covering the scandals involving Mel Gibson, domestic abuse of Rihanna, and stuff like that.

      I feel a mix of pity and annoyance when I check Shea’s blog. He’s in a country without a viable Christian Democracy or Distributist party, one founded on a Revolution backed by many Freemasons and Anticlericals, so I can kind of understand that the politics of the US is never going to be something he can tolerate. I just keep hoping he’ll learn to ignore it instead of just plummeting himself further into self-marginalization and tabloid hysteria. (And for the record I may well do write-in too, I don’t like Romney, but my irritation is not that he dislikes Romney. It’s that he borderline despised every viable political candidate for President this election, last, and essentially always. I may not return, which is sad as years ago I was intrigued with him enough I created his Wikipedia article)

      • ivan_the_mad

        “It’s that he borderline despised every viable political candidate …” I love that word, viable. Suddenly it makes politics not about issues but on a candidate’s purported likelihood to win an election. But since mainstream American politics has devolved into a team sport, complete with all of the intellectual rigor that entails, I’m not surprised that you’d think this way.

        “I may not return …” Heu, heu, horribile dictu et visu. Don’t let the door etc.

  • Raymond

    Just because you are a died in the wool democrat, please refrain from trying to get us to drink the kool aid you have indulged in. Most folks with a modicum of common sense do not use TMZ as the flagship for truthful journalism. You have turned into a Romney hater, Mark. At one time I thought you were one of the top Catholic bloggers on the scene. Now, your true colors have shown you to be a surreptitious ghost writer for obama. I’ll pray for you and all Americans(myself included) that through the teachings of our Church our consciences will be formed correctly.

    • Mark Shea

      Raymond, thanks for illustrating my point so perfectly with that kneejerk tribal response. The check’s in the mail.

    • Tarcisius

      Hahaha! Do you know you just made the exact ad hominem/straw man argument that Mark predicted? I hope you’re joking, but, sadly, I don’t think you are. Please tell me I’m wrong. I never thought I would see a comment echoing his “now people will call me…” statements almost verbatim in the same thread as the statement!

      I apologize in advance if I forgot to turn my sarcasm detector on.

    • Thomas R

      He’s not a Democrat. From what I know he’s largely a Distributist and Chestertonian. There is no significant political party in the US close to that, nor has there ever been nor is there likely to ever be, so essentially he’s not really anything on the US political spectrum.

      I think in many ways he, like myself in some ways, makes more political sense if you just ignore he’s American at all. He is pretty near Canada and I think they had a “socially-conservative critical of Capitalist” party in Alberta or Saskatchewan or something. Granted I think he hates that characterization, but the US political spectrum really does lack what he certainly seems to want in the years I’ve read.

  • Raymond

    The check will be torn up upon arrival. I do not want to be part of adding to you and obama’s horrid national debt.

    • ivan_the_mad

      The poor Czech! … I’m fired :(

    • Mark Shea

      Learn to think. My point, for anyone with a brain, is that prolifers have one shot at getting this manipulative duplicitious man to knuckle under and get serious about the unborn. And people like you are pissing it away with moronic charges that anybody who tries to put pressure on this piece of moral jello to get serious about the unborn are “dyed in the wool Democrats” and secret Obama supporters.

      • Thomas R

        Okay, but are people ever really persuaded when someone calls them “manipulative duplicitous man” or “Plastic Android” or whatever insult you’ve used of him? Are Romney voters really going to be persuaded by you calling them brainless or implying they may go to Hell?

        The weird thing is I share many to most of your concerns about Romney and may also write-in something. My problem is you don’t come off, to me anyway, as someone expressing concerns or anything. You just come off strident and hostile. Like you maybe actively hate both Romney and Obama as people, which I find a bit unnerving. I repeat it because I think it bears repeating, the American political system will never be acceptable to you. So just please please please ignore it as best you can. Less stress for all concerned that way.

        • Hezekiah Garrett

          Yeah, Mark, your perspective is not wanted here!!! How dare you involve yourself in the politics of the land you were born in?

        • Mark Shea

          I called no one brainless and implied no one is going to hell. I do not hate either Romney or Obama, but I do think we live in an age where people are deaf and you have to shout. The very fact that these men are (let this sink in) the very best of the best their parties could produce is obvious evidence of the spiritual sickness of our country. And part of that sickness is that people cannot get out of their ideological bubble and attempt to think differently. Instead, like you, they say “Shut up and leave me alone.” We are now looking at the spectacle of a “prolife” movement that is going to the mat to make excuses for a candidate who voluntarily paid to underwrite the murder of his own grandchild and saying that anybody who refuses to support a man like that is a “perfectionist” and an enemy of the prolife movement. That’s nuts.

  • Ellen

    Mark, it increasingly looks like whether we want to be eaten by a starving lion or a ravenous tiger.

    • FrMichael

      Amen sister!

      What has our American Republic come to that we are reduced to selecting a plutocrat or an aggressive leftist?
      I’ll vote Romney in the hope that we might maintain a modicum of religious liberty, but I’m going to do penance after leaving the voting booth.
      How about turning Election Day into a day of fasting and penance?

      • Ellen

        I’m going to do the same. I’ll vote Romney and then fast and pray. I fear for my religious liberty if The Won gets four more years.

      • vickie

        Great idea, Father

      • Kristen inDallas

        Will join you for the fast and prayer, but I’m looking for a candidate that won’t require the pennance. Good thing we still have options…
        http://www.politics1.com/p2012-ballot.htm

        • FrMichael

          Good link, Kristen in Dallas!

          Since California is deep blue and my vote for President is meaningless anyway, I might very well vote AIP. I’ll take a look at the candidate and see if he’s decent. The other third parties here are hopelessly leftist.

  • Ann

    This was the final straw for me. I know, seems odd, but so it is. I never trusted that he was fully pro-life, but I was willing to overlook this and that and this and that. And for some reason, this story is the last straw. I will not be voting for him (nor Obama) this year. I do not believe this man is pro-life. (By the way, the story was acknowledged and verified by the lawyer who drafted the contract).

  • Ann

    By the way, thank you for bringing attention to this story Mr. Shea. I haven’t seen it anywhere else in the Catholic blogosphere yet.

  • Mark

    So we have a TMZ story about a son of a candidate and it is stated that Mitt made some financial arrangement and mark shea brings this to the forefront as if it is a story worth reading. Questions should be the result saying what did Romney know about this situation or is this money that Romney gives his son as part of a trust or other type of funding to be used as the kid decides?
    Without knowing the facts, and TMZ is hardly a solid news agency, Mark uses it to bash Romney in his attempt to suppress Romney votes which if successful will elect Obama. That in essence is Mark choosing Obama as his guy because end results are what count in life. If Obama cannot get your vote, he would choose to have it go to some third party who has less chance of winning than you do of hitting the lottery 4 weeks in a row. It is sheer stupidity to bash the only thing standing between a person who professes pro life publically in office and the most pro abortion candidate in history. In fact, there is even a greater chance of winning the lottery every week for a lifetime than Obama making a choice in favor of the pro life position or supporting marriage between one man and one woman. Mark is kool aid drinking fool supporting the election of Obama in a manner which would make Barry very happy.

    • Mark Shea

      Yes. It’s all about supporting Obama. Because I love abortion so much. It’s not about trying to get koolaid drinking prolifers to get off their asses and tell the only dim hope they have for a prolife candidate to stop exploiting them and get serious about protecting the unborn.

      Honestly. How stupid can you get?

    • ivan_the_mad

      “because end results are what count in life” Yeah, consequentialism is totally not a heresy or anything.

      • LeeAnn B

        Exactly, let’s choose the lesser of two evils because we should presume to know exactly how it will all turn out. Not.

        In the immortal words of Doug Hastings: “We had the chance but we were scared. We walked away. WE LIVED OUR LIVES IN FEAR!”

        • beccolina

          So awesome that someone else knows that movie! I spent the whole primary hoping and praying for someone other than Romney to get the nomination. When someone has that conversion from pro-choice to pro-life, there is a story about the moment or the process. There is a catalyst. Romney has never mentioned it. It has never come up. Even before evidence that his pro-life stance is just words, I couldn’t trust it. Voting for Obama is unthinkable, but Romney leaves me with little confidence in social issue matters. My only hope for him is that he would be better on energy policy than Obama, and wouldn’t be trying to wreck the economy of my entire state.

    • Richard Johnson

      And at least you will have saved the 99, right?

    • Kristen inDallas

      Don’t go calling me a statistician or anything… but I’m pretty sure that knowing the “odds” of something requires that it be a recurring event for which we already have repeated and consistance observations of occurance, or something which is based on a random calculatable “draw.” Since we do not pick presidents names out of a hat, and since the american people have never before been faced with a choice between exactly these candidates, I’m pretty sure you have no idea what the odds are for a 3rd party winning this election. Don’t worry making up facts to prove your point (ie. lying) doesn’t make you look like you have an agenda at ALL.

  • Josh

    Personally I have no illusions that Romney is anything but a fair-weather pro-lifer. But as with George W Bush’s mocking of executed Texas inmate Karla Faye Tucker, I didn’t think much of him as a pro-lifer either. But the historical example I am taking into this election is the nomination of Samuel A. Alito to the US Supreme Court. Until we can get a court willing to overturn Roe v. Wade we will make no progress in writing laws that protect the unborn at any level of government. When GWB nominated his lawyer, Harriet Miers, to the court the base of his party was able to put enough pressure on him until we got a much cleaner justice. GWB didn’t want to do it, but he realized if he wanted to maintain any political capital for the rest of his agenda, then he had to do it. He had to dance with them what brung him. I know Mitt’s going to want to dance with the other girls, but he better save the slow dances for us. Mark would rather turn Mitt down for the dance, then try to manage his dance card. Somehow I don’t think Mitt will feel much obliged.

  • Jeanna

    Romney and Obama will continue to destroy our country. As much as I respect Ron Paul, his answer isn’t beautiful either. I’m voting for the America’s Party candidate, Tom Hoefling.

    “The saving of America starts the day Christians stop supporting what they say they hate.” ~Tom Hoefling

    “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

    ~JOHN ADAMS, letter to Jonathan Jackson, Oct. 2, 1789

    • Thomas R

      I considered Hoefling, but I’m not sure. Also he doesn’t look to be on the ballot in my state and if I’m going to write something in I can probably think of better.

  • Irenist

    Hmm. I’ll be interested to see how this looks once sources beyond TMZ get a closer look at it. A few decent British papers and a number of U.S. political blogs have picked it up, so I suspect we’re out of hoax territory here. It’s possible that Tagg’s attorney is being truthful when he says that the inclusion of these clauses was an oversight his clients were unaware of. That said, the whole despicable culture of death around surrogacy is pretty well highlighted by this sordid little dust-up, and I’m disgusted to see Gov. Romney having had any (even small) part in it. Of course, surrogacy itself would seem to require IVF, and hence the condemning to never being born of “discarded embryos,” which is one of the many reasons the Church is so right to oppose it, and that it’s sad more Protestants and LDS folks can’t see that surrogacy, IVF, and contraception are part of the culture of death.
    For the pro-life voter in a swing state, perhaps this is still a case of “better the false friend than the open enemy.” For those of us like Mark and me not living in the swing states, I am grateful not to have to consider voting for this fellow.

  • Larry Bethel

    From Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy Media;
    Now for the stupid mistake. We’ve learned Tagg chose the same surrogate in 2009, who gave birth to a boy. Attorney Bill Handel — a nationally-known expert in surrogacy law who put the deal together between Tagg and the surrogate — tells TMZ when the 2009 contract was drafted there was no Paragraph 13 providing for abortion because Tagg and his wife didn’t want it.Handel says in 2011, when the second contract was being drafted, everyone involved “just forgot” to remove Paragraph 13. Handel says, “No one noticed. What can I say?”

    TMZ also asserts that “sources connected with Mitt Romney” said that Romney covered some of the costs associated with the contract. The geniuses at TMZ put two and two together and came to the bombshell conclusion that Romney, in spite of his pro-life stance, secretly favors abortion.

    Now that the story has broken, pro-abortion lefties and Romney-haters couldn’t be happier:

    • Michael in ArchDen

      Sure, that’s believable. Millionaires and governors OFTEN sign contracts without carefully reading them.

      • Michael F.

        Why would Mitt Romney have signed this contract? It was signed by his son.

        If you even read the TMZ story, it says: “Sources connected with Mitt Romney tell TMZ, Mitt was involved in the surrogate arrangement because he paid some of the expenses connected with the agreement. We do not know if Mitt Romney read the contract or knew the terms.”

  • Joannie

    No Ron Paul’s views on things are not perfect but as a doctor he at least would have been and still is better than Mitt on the issue of abortion. The only other issue problematic was same sex relationship. I still believe that he was cheated out of the whole process by the Romney team and he bought the Nomination from the GOP establishment so he is just a politician. Also do not be fooled by his choice of Paul Ryan, because he only did that to get the Catholic Vote. There is no good in either candidate and I believe that the election may be postponed by some kind of national emergency or Martial Law even. You never know exactly how bad he wants to stay in power.

  • Michael F.

    Do you have anything more verifying this account. It’s pretty scandalous. Don’t you think it might deserve some corroboration before putting it out there, to make sure that a) it’s accurate and b) there isn’t more to the story?

    I just spent some time Googling the story, and every other source cites TMZ. I also think it’s interesting that, at least as of right now, no one in the MSM has picked this story up. I think it’s obvious that they would *love* to run a story like this. So, the fact that I can find any of them running it suggests that even they’re not comfortable reporting on it at this point.

    • Michael F.

      Typo:

      So, the fact that I can find any of them running it suggests that even they’re not comfortable reporting on it at this point.

      Should have been:

      So, the fact that I CAN’T find any of them running it suggests that even they’re not comfortable reporting on it at this point.

          Adios when? Its been days, what takes so long, with repeated comments?

  • HBanan

    The more I learn about Romney, the less I like him. Trouble is, I can’t even find a good 3rd party pro-life candidate. Turns out the Libertarian party wants the “sensitive issue” to be left up to individual consciences, though maybe a Libertarian president wouldn’t fund abortions all over the place, since he would want to decrease government spending.

    From the Green Party platform: “h. We endorse women’s right to use contraception and, when they choose, to have an abortion. This right cannot be limited to women’s age or marital status. Contraception and abortion must be included in all health insurance policies in the U.S., and any state government must be able to legally offer these services free of charge to women at the poverty level.”

    I know there are many more 3rd party candidates out there, but I’m curious as to which 3rd party candidate you actually support. I like the idea of putting Romney’s feet to the fire by threatening to vote for a non-Obama candidate, but when it comes to pro-life issues, he seems to be better than the other candidates simply by transparently feigning a pro-life stance rather than insisting that the right to abort is central to a free society.

    You write a lot about why it’s okay to vote for 3rd party, and I agree with you, but I’d appreciate it if you would analyze all those parties out there for those of us on the fence between Romney and some other pro-choice person who is less likely to win.

    What if there is no option that is in line with Church teaching? Is voting 3rd party, in that case, just a way to avoid feeling responsible when the president inevitably does something horrible?

    • Mark

      Folks, we have two viable candidates. No third party even has 3% of the vote in any real poll. One candidate is listed by the abortion mill site as their PARTNER IN THE WHITE HOUSE. That would be Obama

      “On January 20, 2009, a new day dawns for reproductive health and rights with the inauguration of President Barack Obama, who makes clear his commitment to ensuring access to comprehensive health care for women and their families. With a partner in the White House and allies in Congress, Planned Parenthood renews its efforts to help secure reproductive rights and define health care reform for the 21st century.” http://www.plannedparenthood.org/about-us/who-we-are/history-and-successes.htm
      This is kind of like the death camps endorsing Hitler before the election and some german people unable to vote against his holding power. In fact, about eight times more babies have died in the abortion mills than the 6 million in the death camps.
      So lets make this simple; if there are 100 votes and Obama and Romney each have 48 with the other 4% split to third party, then if one of the 48 for romney decides to make it 5 for the third party, it gives obama the victory. There is no hope that 46% will leave to go third party so there is zero hope that a third party will win. So only a complete fool would think that giving their vote to a third party rather than the more pro life candidate is anything more than giving their vote to the abortion mill partner.
      Until something radical changes in this country, we have a two party system. Obama put in two judges who will be their for decades who are signed sealed and delivered to the abortion mills. Another term will give him probably at least one if not two more. So the little temper tantrum act of voting third party does nothing but kill more babies for decades on end. Your choice. It is a simple one.

      • ivan_the_mad

        What utter rubbish.

      • Mark

        Note that none take on the issues presented and show them to be in error in any way. Reality is a hard thing to face for many. Reality is a vote that does not go to Romney is a vote for Obama. I note that the abortion mill planned parenthood is going to dump 3.5 million bucks into Ohio and Virginia against Romney to get their PARTNER IN THE WHITE HOUSE back in for four more years meaning millions more babies will be killed in the process. when are those who claim to be pro life going to wake up and face reality.

        • Mark Shea

          No. Reality is that a vote for a third party is a vote for a third party. And in blue Washington, a vote for a third party, if it were to rob anyone, is to rob Obama since the electoral college belongs to him here. But in fact to vote for a third party is sometime to force the duopoly to listen to the concerns of the third party, which is why both parties were forced to pay attention to the concerns of Perot voters.

          Meanwhile, reality is that Romney is pro-abortion, pro gay marriage and adoption, pro torture, pro war, pro class war, pro forcing Catholic hospital to prescribe the morning after pill, and giving every indication that all his fake rhetoric to the contrary is just fake.

    • http://mcbabyadventures.wordpress.com silicasandra

      I was looking up third party candidates yesterday. The Constitution Party candidate, Virgil Goode, doesn’t look too bad, although his views on immigration are less than charitable (in my view.) But he is pro-life and pro-family and doesn’t come across as too much of a whackjob. http://www.goodeforpresident2012.com/

      It looks like my state (PA) is a definite yes for Obama, so I doubt I’ll feel any pang of guilt at all not voting for Romney if the poll numbers continue as they are. If they are closer, I might vote for Romney but ugh, I do not think he would be a good president. Just less of a bad one than the incumbent. If all of us who were tempted to vote third party did it, we could definitely change how elections are run in this country. Even if you are all gung-ho behind one of the major parties, who is really happy about the fact that campaigns cost exorbitant amounts of money, take up way too much time, and that all politicians do once they are elected is focus on getting re-elected (or getting their friends elected if, thank God, they have finally come up against a term limit)?

      I think it’s dishonest to suggest (as the other reply to you did) that people who are really, really sick of the entire election process as it exists today, and want to try and break out of that system, are somehow personally responsible for the murder of innocent children. Sure, Republicans (and some Democrats) have enacted some restrictions on abortion and those restrictions have saved lives, but we are dealing with trench warfare here – move the lines a little bit each way but no long-lasting progress being made. We have to shake up the system – a lot – if anything is going to actually, seriously change. I don’t see either of the two major parties being concerned with actually doing anything as long as they get their votes and campaign contributions.

  • c matt

    Given that hormonal contraceptives poison our water (not to mention the direct ingestor of the thing), what is so “Green” about supporting it?

    To those for whom the next SCOTUS appointments are the main reason for voting for Romney, what makes you think he will stick his neck out for pro-life candidates? What makes you think any GOP senator will “Bork” a less than pro-life nominee the way Dems do to ones that are even marginally pro-life? The GOP has far less discipline on this issue than their Demoncrat counterparts.

  • c matt

    From what I have seen, Virgil Good (Constitution Party) is solidly pro-life. From his website (FWIW):

    In the United States House of Representatives, I had a consistent pro-life voting record and in 2008 the National Right to Life Political Action Committee commended me “for your 100 percent pro-life voting record throughout your twelve years of service in the U.S. House of Representatives”. As President I would continue to oppose abortion and would submit a budget to Congress with zero funding for planned parenthood and any other similar entities.

    • Ted Seeber

      He’s solidly pro life as long as the life is not a Mexican trying to cross the border. Then he becomes pretty much downright pro-death.

      I recognize myself when I see it; human smuggling is something I struggle with how to morally deal as well.

  • Hezekiah Garrett

    If I could vota against obama I would. Ditto romney…

    Your post prompted me to explore, in greater depth, the Mormon position on abortion. I found the following site that challenges the inconsistencies of on all things Mormon. This section specifically addresses abortion. http://www.mrm.org/abortion …. is not a Catholic website, but rather an evangelical site, Mormonism Research Ministry. It’s mission is to challenge, inform and explain to Christians the faulty “truths” of Mormon teaching. They state: “Mormonism Research Ministry is a missionary/apologetics organization that was organized in 1979 to propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to critically evaluate the differences between Mormonism and biblical Christianity.” The presentation of the Mormon position on abortion by the Research Ministry is explained in a through, comprehensive manner. Check out the site and pray for Romney’s true and complete conversion.

    So many men talking about pro life, what a joke! So many Christians eager to vote for a lier. I will be voting for a man with integrity, someone who cares about the middle class and all Americans. May God have mercy on all your wretched souls. God bless America and God bless our great President. Obama 2012!!

      You’re going to vote for a man who secretly orders the murder of innocent civilians and then covers it up by calling them enemy combatants? Some integrity. Sucker!

    Hey Mark,
    Just wanted to let you know you’re not alone. My conscience has been bothering me and so I’ve been doing a lot of research on Romney. Just can’t swallow the fallacious lesser-of-two-evils argument that he’s my only choice. Aside from all his waffling in the past, he’s still for abortion with exceptions…..that means he’s pro-choice/pro-abortion. There is no grey area here for me as a Catholic. It’s a deal breaker. I don’t expect perfection in a candidate. Just human decency. Thanks for being the only Catholic I’ve found so far who can even go there. Simple concept — no policy is worth anything without the basic right to life for all people. Period. Seems like a clear case of rendering to Caesar what is his and God what’s His…… Take care, and thanks again for speaking up.
