Mitt Romney Funded Surrogate Contract for His Son that Allows for Abortion

Mitt Romney said he was for the Personhood Amendment, which would make even some forms of birth control illegal. In any case, it doesn’t allow for abortion even in the case of the life of the mother or rape. Remember legitimate rape? That’s the thinking behind the Personhood Amendment. According to TMZ, this Personhood Amendment candidate paid money toward his son’s surrogacy contract expenses — a contract that allows both parties to abort the fetus under non-life threatening conditions.
The contract includes several portions allowing for abortion via both the surrogate’s and the intended parent decision. Now, this same clause was not included in the previous contract they had with the same surrogate, which makes it stand out more, as lawyers usually hash out all of these details with the attention you’d expect when you’re dealing with such an emotional issue.
The contract specifically provides the choice of abortion if Romney’s son and daughter-in-law want it. TMZ reports on the Gestational Carrier Agreement dated July 28, 2011:
“If in the opinion of the treating physician or her independent obstetrician there is potential physical harm to the surrogate, the decision to abort or not abort is to be made by the surrogate.”
“In the event the child is determined to be physiologically, genetically or chromosomally abnormal, the decision to abort or not to abort is to be made by the intended parents. In such a case the surrogate agrees to abort, or not to abort, in accordance with the intended parents’ decision.”
“Any decision to abort because of potential harm to the child, or to reduce the number of fetuses, is to be made by the intended parents.”
So yeah. This contract has nothing to do with danger to the mother and everything to do with “choice”. TMZ can’t say if Romney read the contract before he funded part of the expense. Fair enough. But if his own son and daughter in law feel they are entitled to choice, doesn’t it follow that perhaps Mitt Romney might want to extend that privilege to the rest of the country?
It may have been an oversight. Their attorney Bill Handel says they just “forgot” to remove the clauses pertaining to abortion. That’s possible, though certainly doesn’t reflect well on him if it true. But it also reveals the dirty secret behind anti-choicers. People with money always have choice. So when politicians discuss removing choice, they are only really removing choice from women without means.
Romney has promised to defund Planned Parenthood and deny women the right to abortions even in the case of rape. Of course, Romney has changed his position on this so many times it’s impossible to say where he stands today. It’s awkward that a man running for President would fund such an agreement while he’s out telling voters that he supports the Personhood Amendment.
Readers will say this is “personal” and I shouldn’t have reported it. To them, I say, exactly. It’s personal. It’s a personal family matter. I could not agree more.
That is the exact position of the pro-choice movement. Pro choicers believe that women and their families are best suited to make these decisions in private, with their doctors.
We would all really appreciate not having to report on the personal lives of Republicans who are inserting themselves into our personal lives with legislation, as they know they can open any door they need to due to means.
It is personal. And it’s not the place of Republicans to get into the personal lives of American families, just as they don’t want us in their personal lives. IT IS PERSONAL, and no one gets to be held to a different standard, especially when they are denying other women the same rights they take for themselves.
You mean Benghazi. How sad.

The Days Of Creation
Here's a list of what God created on each of the six days of creation:
Day 1: The heavens, the earth, light and darkness.
Day 2: Heaven
Day 3: Dry land, the seas, and vegetation.
Day 4: The sun, the moon and the stars.
Day 5: Living creatures in the water, birds in the air.
Day 6: Land animals and people.
Day 7: God "rested".
Dinosaurs were created on day six.There is something interesting to note in this list. Let me ask a question:
What are most dinosaurs?
They are land animals.
When were all land animals created?
Day six. So on what day must dinosaurs have been created? On day six, the same day people were created.
That's interesting. Could it be the Bible is saying people lived with dinosaurs? Is there any evidence that people lived with dinosaurs? The answer to both of these questions is, "yes". But let's start at the beginning to understand what the Bible is saying.
How Long Is A Day?
There is a theory that says each of God's days in Genesis were actually millions of years for us. Is this true? Maybe we need to ask what does the word "day" mean in Genesis?
sun riseThe Hebrew word "yom" is translated as day in Genesis. Just as our word "day" can have different meanings based on its context, so can the word "yom". For example, in the Old Testament "yom" is translated to mean a 24 hour day 1109 times. It means a long, long period of time--such as an age--about nine times.
However, every time the word "yom" is used with the term evening or morning in the Bible, it means a regular 24 hour day.
Every time the word "yom" is used with a number, such as "40 yom" (40 days), it means a regular 24 hour day.
What we now see is that in Genesis chapter one God is going out of His way to emphasize that each day is a normal 24 hour day. For example in verse five He says:
"And there was evening and there was morning, one day."
Verse 8: "And there was evening and there was morning, a second day."
Verse 13: "There was evening and there was morning, a third day."
For each day of creation the pattern is the same: evening, morning, number, day. Just part of that pattern, for example using the words "evening" and "day" together, tell us it was a 24 hour day. But God tells us in three ways -- evening, morning, number -- that the word day means... an ordinary 24 hour day.
God is making it very clear: He created everything in six ordinary days.
Don't forget who created the phoney story in BENGHAZI.

Thanks to the magic of Etch-A-Sketch, the choice isn't so clear since the debate. Bishop Rmoney and Obammy are now BOTH MODERATES who AGREE on EVERYTHING!!!! LOL
Where did the severely conservative Bishop Rmoney from the Republican debates go???? As long as the base doesn't mind being hoodwinked, why should the American people?
Where did the terrorists of BENGHAZI go? Opps . They got away because Obama made up a fake story so they could all get away. Isn't that aiding and abetting the enemy?

So when we elect Bishop Rmoney, we have to just TRUST him, to do what it RIGHT for himself.

One of the opposition talking points during the 1960 election was that if JFK, a Catholic, were elected, the Pope would be governing the US from Rome. The John Birch Society was the author of the most vicious attacks. In Kennedy's tragically short administration, there was no evidence to validate this claim. In terms of Romney's Mormon faith, there are many who are implying that Romney's Mormon faith will be the nation's downfall. I know the history of the faith, since Joseph Smith was a native of a county near here. Whether one wishes to accept the beliefs of the Church of Latter Day Saints or reject them is an option provided by the Constitution which guarantees that there would be no law governing the free practice of one's religion. The only change that would be likely to occur would be the absence of alcohol, caffeine and tobacco products in the White House. The uninformed believe that the Mormon Church condones polygamy. In fact those who practice polygamy are immediately excommunicated. The value system that is promoted by the Mormon hierarchy is conducive to healthy living. Somehow I doubt that Romney has ever attended a Mormon service in which the clergyman "God damns America."

Well Scott Brown is a real liberal Republican. He's a moderate so I doubt the Tea Party likes him. He has voted for what he wants to vote for. He doesn't vote with the Tea Party. At the same time, Elizabeth Warren is the one who was assigned to investigate why the banks all collapsed, and she did many interviews showing that she found all kinds of corruption, she really told the true story of the mortgage fraud and how the people at the top made all this money off of bad mortgages. So even though I am a Repub, I would vote for her rather than Scott Brown because he's a middle of the road, do nothing kind of guy whereas I know Elizabeth Warren's record of being a serious investigator and truth teller. Here again it shows you can't go by D or R. You have to go buy the actions of the person.

Can't a Harvard educated woman discern the difference between family 'lore' and an outright lie?

NO indian ancestory, just folklore, but Ms Warren takes that lore and applies that fiction to a job application which gives her a rung further up the ladder.

Then, she KNOWINGLY represents clients when she does NOT, repeat, does NOT have law license in MA.

What other lies are there?
What other fraud is there?

When there is a BLATANT MISREPRESENTATION which advances HER cause Ms. Warren will not hesitate to to use it.

NO TRUST = ELIZABETH WARREN!

Do you want a liberal Republican in there who does not vote with the Tea Party or the lady who investigated the mega banks and the mortgage crisis??

You want whoever Fox tells you to want. It has an R on it, you want it cause the TV told you that you want it, no matter who the guy is, no matter what he thinks, no matter how he votes. You don't want the D cause Fox told you hate all Ds, no matter the D is on your side and investigated everything and exposed the corruptions in the mega banks and can help you tremendously. Oh no, no thinking for yourselves. Fox TV told you to hate all Ds and love all Rs and you ONLY do what TV tells you to do. People like this should not be voting.
