Mitt Romney, Could this be our next President?

Mitt Romney where exactly do you fall on the topic of abortion? We know where you stand on the Obamacare tax but other positions you take are not so clear. It doesn’t seem that we can get a straight answer from you. You are pro-life except for when you are not and you are pro-choice except for when it’s inconvenient. You are not going to change anything except for everything in respects to women and our bodies. You, sir, make me afraid to be a woman in your United States.

This is not personal, this is politics and common sense. You seem like a likable enough guy. I’m sure that you may be a wonderful father, husband, friend and business man. You may be all that and more but you are not one of us; your female constituents. You have been lucky enough to not ever have to be one of the have nots in any aspect. That’s not a crime, it’s a blessing but it makes you out of touch with the average American people; the people of who you are supposed to be of and for and that frightens me to live in your United States of America.

This latest article has me more concerned than ever about the state of our country if Mitt Romney is elected president.

(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in an interview on Tuesday that he has no abortion-related legislation on his platform but that he would reinstate a policy banning nongovernmental organizations from using federal funds to provide abortions.

Romney’s campaign spokeswoman reiterated that he is opposed to abortion. “Mitt Romney is proudly pro-life, and he will be a pro-life president.”

Obama’s campaign said Romney’s “statement contradicts his pledge to appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade,” disavowing federal funds from being spent on abortions, and said he would nominate judges in line with his views.

The candidate has been criticized for changing positions on the issue of abortion, dating back to his run for governor of Massachusetts.

“With regards to abortion, I changed my mind. With regards to abortion, I had the experience of coming in to office, running for governor, saying, you know, I’m going to keep the laws as they exist in the state,” Romney said at a debate in Iowa on December 15.

“And they were pro-choice laws, so effectively I was pro-choice. Then I had a bill come to my desk that didn’t just keep the laws as they were, but would have created new embryos for the purpose of destroying them. I studied it in some depth and concluded I simply could not sign on to take human life. I vetoed that bill.”

Make a choice and stick to it. Stand for something. I’d have more respect for you if you had a heartfelt reason to oppose choice than that you try to logically explain why you change your mind about abortion when it suits you.

I am pro-choice. I adore babies (from conception on) and I don’t think I could ever choose to have an abortion myself (but what the fuck do I know, I’ve never had to choose. Neither have you, right?). Nobody knows what they would do until they are in that desperate situation. Bottom line, abortion might not be a choice that I could make but there are other women for who it is the only choice. It’s about respecting women to know themselves and their limits and their hearts. Things happen, bad things to good women and sometimes, bad timing for a pregnancy is more than just not being ready to be a mother, sometimes it’s a rape, molestation, a child without a chance, and a mother without a prayer to take care of her child. No matter what the reason, abortion is a private and personal choice that concerns a woman’s body, her future and her life. She has to live with the consequences, the heaviness in her heart and the weight of the magnitude of her choices stay with her always. Choosing to have an abortion is not something that any woman ever takes lightly. No man will ever know what it is like to make that decision. He can’t. Just like no man will ever know what it feels like to give birth or feel the overwhelming, all-consuming love that a mother has in her heart for her children.

If we take away a woman’s right to choose, we take away a woman’s right to be a human. Seeing that you are so willing to play politics with such a life changing issue scares me. Mr. Romney, I feel like your objective is to win a race.  I don’t however feel like you care about how your political positions might effect the women of this country. We need a compassionate leader to give us hope, respect and to restore our basic human rights. The United States is not in the sole business of producing product or making money, we are in the business of building people and making history.

I don’t want to raise my daughters in a world where they are treated like second class citizens. Mr. Romney, please don’t sacrifice women’s rights to win the race.

Mitt Romney, Women are People Too

    Bull. I don’t need to be able to choose to kill an unborn baby in order to be human. Quite the OPPOSITE. The human thing to do is to not commit murder. After about 18 days the heart is beating….. anything done to purposely stop that heart is murder. The morning after pill is available in cases of rape. It is disgusting to me to read that in California, a high school nurse can give a student a bus pass to have an abortion done during school hours. DISGUSTING.

    I am currently reading a book by an African American woman who made CHOICES to go down the wrong path (petty theft, drugs, etc.) She had FOUR abortions. She was not molested or raped, she was sleeping around. She knew what she was doing was wrong but she didn’t care. It is time that Americans, both men and women, deal with the consequences of their actions.

    I couldn’t agree more.

    No one is PRO abortion, no one. It is an agonizing decision and is rarely taken lightly. I would even argue that those who appear to take it lightly are those who will suffer the most from decision.

    Mitt Romney will be a terror on womens’ rights, make no mistake.

    Thanks for standing up for your beliefs.
