More on KLo's NR interview:
This part of Romney's response -- on how he evolved on abortion from pro-choice to pro-life (at the age of 57) -- struck us, because it shows ROMNEY IS STILL NOT PRO-LIFE !
[Romney:] "But I do believe that the one-size-fits-all, abortion-on-demand-for-all-nine-months decision in Roe v. Wade does not serve the country well and is another example of judges making the law instead of interpreting the Constitution. What I would like to see is the Court return the issue to the people to decide. ... I understand there are people of good faith on both sides of the issue. They should be able to make and advance their case in democratic forums with civility, mutual respect, and confidence that our democratic process is the best place to handle these issues."
We say, NO! This is not a true pro-life position either! People should NOT vote on either the definition of marriage, or the definition of human life! Marriage is marriage, and murder is murder! Either a human fetus is a human life, or it is not. If you believe it is a HUMAN, how can we leave it up to the voters to decide whether it can be murdered? Come on, Romney. Come on, KLo -- and National Review. Romney: You're still "pro-choice" if you think the people should be given the opportunity to vote on abortion! "Let the People Vote!" -- on murder???
Also: If Romney has suddenly become pro-life in the last two years of his political career, then why did he force the morning-after pill on private hospitals just one year ago (with no conscience exemption to protect freedom of religion)?
December 7, 2005: "The state Department of Public Health has determined that Catholic and other privately-run hospitals in Massachusetts can opt out of giving the morning-after pill to rape victims because of religious or moral objections, despite a new law that requires all hospitals who treat such victims to provide them with emergency contraception."
("Private hospitals exempt on pill law," Boston Globe)
December 9, 2005 -- Flip-Flop: "Governor Mitt Romney reversed course on the state's new emergency contraception law yesterday, saying that all hospitals in the state will be obligated to provide the morning-after pill to rape victims. The decision overturns a ruling made public this week by the state Department of Public Health that privately run hospitals could opt out of the requirement if they objected on moral or religious grounds."
