Romney Told Catholic Hospitals to Administer Abortion Pills

Two posts from the past few days shared the above headline. Here’s an excerpt from the shorter one:

I’ve heard Romney’s excuse on this, he said there wasn’t anything he could do, because that was “the law.” But he signed Romneycare knowing this was in there, so his excuse doesn’t match up to reality.

Here’s an excerpt from the longer one:

A defining moment in Mitt Romney’s post-pro-life-conversion political career came in his third year as governor of Massachusetts, when he decided Catholic hospitals would be required under his interpretation of a new state law to give rape victims a drug that can induce abortions.

Romney announced this decision — saying it was the “right thing for hospitals” to do — just two days after he had taken the opposite position. […]

A true leader would have said: I will defend the First Amendment right of Catholics to freely exercise their religion — against those who would force them to participate in abortions — all the way to the Supreme Court.

This is just another in a long series of examples where Mitt Romney, not wanting to admit what he’s really doing, lies. Yes, lies. When someone is as dishonest as Romney is as often as he is, it’s time to call it what it is. Lying.

And yet we’re told we need to vote for Romney if he wins the nomination because our liar is better than their liar.

The national Republicans are looking more and more like Illinois Republicans every day. And the results of their bad judgment and incompetence are looking more similar by the day as well.
