As governor of Massachusetts, Romney futilely vetoed a bill that made the morning-after pill available over the counter to rape victims, announcing in the Boston Globe in 2005, "I am pro-life."
But Think Progress also points out that Romney has financial investments in 5 other companies that sell emergency contraception and/or birth control, and campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul did not respond to a Bloomberg request for comment on how Romney could accept support from a host who profits from Plan B.
According to Teva, Dr. Frost has served on the company's board since shortly after it acquired his own firm Ivax in 2005 for $7.6 billion; Forbes reported in 2010 that he held more than $850 million in shares of Teva stock.
The Miami Herald reports Romney hopes to raise $5 to $8 million on his Florida fundraising tour.
Must've been another one of those clueless- DUHMocrapTIC bills of nothing logical.

Rape victims SHOULD see doctors-NOT over the counter sales people.

A Desperate Mitt Romney Claims Obama Planted Gay Bullying Story
"In both the interviews that Romney has given to Fox News he has never denied that he bullied his fellow student, nor has he taken specific responsibility for his actions. By claiming he doesn’t remember the incident, but not denying it, Romney is admitting his guilt without taking responsibility.
Mitt Romney can try to blame President Obama for this story, but a real leader would be blaming himself. Romney’s own decisions and actions created the story. Would the revelations that Mitt Romney was a bully mean as much if Romney supported same sex marriage? Probably not.
Romney could have taken this opportunity to show America that he has the character of a leader by using his own actions as a teachable moment about bullying. Instead he has decided to concoct a wild conspiracy theory and blame President Obama.
The right doesn’t get it. They are trying to play off Obama’s support for gay marriage, and Mitt Romney’s history of bullying as just politics, but it is so much more than that. Just politics is coming up with a conspiracy theory in order for a candidate to dodge responsibility for their own actions. Just politics is Mitt Romney claiming not to remember an incident that he clearly does remember.
Were laws that forbade women from voting and owning property just politics? How about Jim Crow laws? Were those just politics too? Mitt Romney’s history of bullying touches two important issues in our society today, bullying and civil rights.
The last two days have revealed the character of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Obama stood up for what is right, while Romney has made excuses and denied responsibility for his wrongs. One of these men has the character of a president, and the other held a boy down who he suspected to be gay and cut his hair.
One man is currently responsible for leading our country. The other a wanna be president who can’t even take responsibility for his own actions."

And? So? Obama probably did plant that story. Or one of his accomplices carrying out the attacks on his enemies list.

Your denial is very sad...similar to Obama's lack of accomplishment. Agreeing with Obama would mean buying into Obama's fantasy of hope & change, something you have swallowed with your eyes closed, your ears sealed and your mouth, unfortunately, wide open.

You must not have read the entire article where Romney said this:
"Against an incumbent with a billion dollars he's raising, with an extraordinary machine that'll be attacking me on a personal basis day by day...we're gonna have to fight very, very hard to break through the clutter of the charges and the attacks and the efforts to dissuade people from looking at his record."
I believe "his record" has to do with the economy.

That is Right for it is great to REAFFIRM THE POSITION = Romney-2012 = FOR That is right for the stand gainst gay marrige

NEWS NOTEWORTHY AS FOLLOWS:______
(That is TRUE for it is great to REAFFIRM THE POSITION = Romney-2012)

LYNCHBURG, Va.— Mitt Romney is telling students at a Christian university that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Romney on Saturday told the Liberty University commencement that marriage is an "enduring" institution that's reserved for one man and one woman. He also says that culture — "what you believe, how you live, what you value — it matters."

The crowd cheered his comments, made days after Democratic President Barack Obama embraced same-sex marriage.

Romney avoided talking about his own faith but says Judeo-Christian values have driven American success.

Mitt Romney sings the national anthem during the commencement ceremony at Liberty University today.

Romney says that students at the university will bring "moral certainty" and "clear standards" to their jobs and lives. He also says that America has trusted in "God, not man," since its founding.

Romney spoke Saturday morning in Lynchburg.

Although now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Romney had planned months ago to speak at the Liberty campus. It's an opportunity to address to the kind of socially conservative audience that had been wary of him during the prolonged GOP primary fight. Republican Sen. John McCain spoke at Liberty in 2006 in advance of his presidential bid as he worked to calm concerns about his candidacy among evangelical conservatives.

Meanwhile, Obama chose not to revisit the issue of gay marriage today. In his weekly radio and Internet address, the president didn't mention his history-making comments that same-sex marriage should be legal. Instead, he repeated his call for congressional lawmakers to take up a "to-do list" of tax breaks, mortgage relief and other initiatives that he insists will create jobs and help middle-class families struggling in the sluggish economy.

"We tried their ideas for nearly a decade, and it didn't work out so well," Obama said in a jab at Republicans. "We can't go back to the same policies that got us into this mess. We've got to move forward. We need to build an economy where hard work and responsibility are rewarded - where you can find a good job, own your own home, maybe start a businesses, and give your kids the chance to do even better."

Having spent part of the week on the West Coast raising money for his re-election effort, Obama was due back in the Rose Garden of the White House on Saturday to honor award-winning law enforcement officers. He had no other public events scheduled for the day.

As governor of Massachusetts, Romney championed a state constitutional amendment to bar gay marriage. He says he supports a federal constitutional amendment to bar gay marriage.

Still, Romney has a history of supporting certain gay rights. He is in favor of allowing states to give same-sex couples certain domestic partnership benefits, including adoption.

Romney's views on gay marriage and other social issues are shaped by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormon doctrine defines marriage as between a man and a woman and considers sexual activity outside of marriage a sin. Mormon officials contributed money and volunteers for Proposition 8, the 2008 California measure that barred same-sex marriage. Romney's political action committee contributed $10,000 to the National Organization for Marriage, the group that led the fight for that law.

However, Mormon officials have also backed measures that protect gays and lesbians from discrimination in housing and employment, including supporting such ordinances in 2009 for Salt Lake City, where the church is based.

The liberal media made up that story about Romney, Lily. You'll believe anything. Where is the victim? Witnesses? Sources?
Of course, homophobia is a reality. But for you to label only conservatives as being such makes you out to be the liar.
Obama was quite public about being against gay marriage until he caved to his far left base - and will probably pay a price for that among a significant number of black voters.
Gays have just as many civil rights as anyone and have become quite a part of the mainstream with tolerance from all sides.
They just can't have the definition of marriage. Most of us aren't as "evolved" as this president suddenly became overnight.
There are some standards in society that are there for a reason since time and memorial. The definition of marrige is one of them. If that ever changes, I just hope I'm not around anymore.
It would be in the chapter "The Fall of America" in future history books.
You've become such a liar Carol, shameful that you and some of the others who once came here for open and honest discussions have wimped out and become caught up in the right wing troll world of lies and deceit.

You once got PO'd at me accusing you of reading at the John Birch Society site__LMAO as you now quote from bogs and sites that make those freaks look like lefties.

There were four witnesses that have not died and who have confirmed that Mitt Romney lead the attack on the now deceased unpopular student. No one made up shyt Carol, that happened and more, Mitt behaved just as one might expect the governors son to behave in a teen movie only it was in real life.

I voted for Mitt in the 2008 (R) primary and couldn't believe that my fellow Republicans chose McCain. You chose McCain Carol and I, cough, can't imagine why.

Now you're acting as though you invented Mitt Romney.

Freakin loser is what you've always been and will continue to be.
