View Diary: Tagg Romney had an abortion clause for the surrogate mother of his child (272 comments)

    This report is invasion of privacy; it's not about Mitt Romney but about a very personal experience of his son.

    Moreover, the contract outlines difficult and deeply personal choices to be made in cases of abortion; the contract doesn't say what the choices would be, only who would make the choices.

    The TMZ article disgusts me:

    "If in the opinion of the treating physician or her independent obstetrician there is potential physical harm to the surrogate, the decision to abort or not abort is to be made by the surrogate."

    Translation:  Tagg and Jen gave the surrogate the right to abort the fetuses even if her life wasn't in danger. All the surrogate has to show is "potential physical harm," which could be something like preeclampsia -- a type of high blood pressure that could damage the mother's liver, kidney or brain, but is not necessarily life-threatening.

    Apparently the author of that article is so anti-abortion that liver, kidney or brain damage is insufficient reason to abort. At least Tagg and Jen have more humanitarian beliefs than the author.
