First, they announce they're going after Romneycare. Then, with the same breath, they announce they'll support the fooline who authored it.
The cynic in me wonders whether Romney is withholding his ten thousand dollar donation.
Romney was for mandated socialized medicine with low co-pay abortions before he was against it. As we all know by now, Obama modeled Obamacare on Romneycare.
Romney has walked a fine line on the health care issue, as well, defending his law as a state solution to a state problem, while calling for a repeal of the national law, which he has denounced as a power grab.
It is highly unusual for a group that opposes abortion rights to challenge a Republican presidential candidate who embraces its cause. But some abortion opponents have questioned the sincerity of Romney’s beliefs.
During the 2008 Republican primary, for example, antiabortion activists protested outside several of his campaign appearances, while another candidate, Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas attacked Romney’s shift on abortion.
Fox said her group is not trying to undercut Romney’s presidential campaign, merely one of the laws he signed.
“I have no problem with Mitt Romney,’’ she said. “If he is the nominee, we will back him to the hilt.’’
This is typical of the problems with MCFL. They support, lobby and help elect proabortion politicians and then when the laws they enact kill children, everyone, including them, is forced into running around the Commonwealth trying to save the few we can. And then, when a legitimate pro-life group mentions the obvious, they throw them under the bus and cover up the truth.
Even so, Citizens for Life, which is the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee, had a statement on its website yesterday, blasting the state law in much starker terms.
“RomneyCare covers abortions, and the mandate forces citizens to participate in a system which strives to make the murder of unborn children as cheap as $50,’’ the statement said. “There are, however, many more ways which this requirement offends against both the sanctity of human life, principles of ethical medicine and simple common sense.’’
Yesterday, Citizens for Life removed the statement from its website and immediately began distancing itself from that line of attack, after being contacted by Peter Flaherty, Romney’s liaison to social conservatives.
Fox blamed the statement on a staff member at Citizens for Life, and said it did not reflect the group’s views
It doesn't reflect their views?
It has nothing to do with "views". These are facts. Abortions are covered with a 50 dollar co-pay under Romneycare.
“I was extremely upset,’’ she said. “He has removed it. I thought, ‘Where did this come from, because it had my name on it, and I never wrote it.’ ’’
Here's what's happened in the past - she either has fired them for disclosing the truth, or if they're a volunteer, they'll get a boot in the backside.
The woman is a menace.
