ScoopNZ...provides an interview with Judy Dushku, an old friend of Mitt Romney who has some choice memories about Romney's earlier flip flops on the abortion debate. [..]
In the interview, Romney scolds a woman who faces death from a pregnancy for considering undergoing an abortion, despite the fact that her doctor also recommends an abortion. He then professes his pro-choice views, which he attributes to an aunt who died from a botched back alley abortion, and political necessity in Massachusetts that's been rubber stamped from "the brethren" in Salt Lake City.
Flip-flop much, Mitt? The alleged exchange with the pregnant woman is unbelievably heartless:
He said - What do you think you're doing?
She said - Well, we have to abort the baby because I have these blood clots.
And he said something to the effect of - Well, why do you get off easy when other women have their babies?
And she said - What are you talking about? This is a life threatening situation.
And he said - Well what about the life of the baby?
And she said - I have four other children and I think it would be really irresponsible to continue the pregnancy.
This woman displayed far more grace under such callous questioning than I would have been able to do...
