He's pro-life (with exceptions) but is willing to include abortion in tax payer funded health care?:
The cornerstone of Gov. Mitt Romney's new universal health care law for Massachusetts is a program titled "Commonwealth Care", a plan for thousands of low-income people who could not afford regular health insurance, funded by the taxpayers.The Corner's Katherine Jean Lopez defends Romney, stating, "That's bad, but strikes me as nothing new or surprising." It seems Romney would have to break a campaign promise (in this instance) and would endanger the entire bill if he acted upon his belief that abortion is the murder.
One of the stated benefits covered in Commonwealth Care is "abortions." And Planned Parenthood is written into the law, as part of the "payment policy advisory board."
