The National Right to Life Committee believes that Republican presidential wannabe and former Sen. Fred Thompson can win.
Perhaps the NRLC's surprising endorsement of Thompson as the group's Republican presidential pick is also about putting the brakes on a nomination of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
This thought occurred to me upon reading the commentary "Romney Secrets The Media Are Hiding From You" by Boston "Pundit Review Radio" host Gregg Jackson, and veteran Boston journalist Paul Dinger on Townhall.com.
Jackson and Dinger do not paint a pretty picture of Romney's record on issues of interest to pro-lifers, and more, when he governed Massachusetts. Here's a sample:
I thought he was pro-life? Romney's Massachusetts health care plan says "no." The plan covers abortion. What kind of Pro-lifer thinks abortion should be part of his health care plan? Romney signed this bill into law after he claims he had a discussion with an anonymous Harvard doctor wherein he discovered abortion was morally wrong.
Anyone, pro-life or otherwise, leaning towards Romney might want to read the entire "Romney Secrets..." commentary and weep.
