"The Democrats try and make this a political issue every four years, but this is a matter in the courts. It's been settled for some time in the courts."
Willard Romney, you are a blatant liar:
This is what the Republicans` jobs, jobs, jobs agenda looks
like, by which I mean the abortion agenda.
This is what the Republicans did with their big new majority after the
2010 election. Republicans` jobs, jobs, jobortion agenda is so fast
they`re focusing on the area of legislation so intently that it kind of
seems like there should be a monthly newsletter for following this sort of
Actually, there kind of is, if you count the Guttmacher Institute`s
exhaustive monthly updates on what Republicans are trying to do to abortion
rights right now. With such a gigantic body of work to draw from because
they`re working on it so intently, you can`t actually pull out and identify
trends in current anti-abortion law-making. ...
One important thing to know on these 20-week bans on abortion, about
when you`re allowed to get an abortion, is that these bans are totally
unconstitutional. According to Roe versus Wade, according to the Supreme
Court, states don`t get to ban abortions before what`s called viability.
In the two years that these bans have been trending in the very red states,
there hasn't been much of an argument on that point. People who are doing
this know it`s unconstitutional. Many of the people pushing for this bans
admit that they`re unconstitutional.
By the way, since Romney claims "My position has been clear throughout this campaign. I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother," would he veto any Republican bills that include banning all abortions, including those that make no exceptions for rape, incest, and the health and life of the mother?
