Romney’s campaign says he is “proudly pro-life.” In fact, the question of whether he was playing down his extremist core convictions when he was trying to get ahead in Massachusetts politics, or is playing down his moderate core convictions to get ahead in the wacky/wacko world of the national Republican Party today, well the clue to answering that question was that you all started giggling when I used the phrase “core convictions” about Mittens.
He is pretty clearly expediently pro-life rather than dogmatically pro-life. Women’s rights to control their bodies are something he’s happy to sacrifice for his personal advancement, or not, as the political environment calls for. Women’s uteruses are just pawns to him, which may be the least appetizing imagery ever to appear in this blog.
