Tagg Romney played tagg on several so called pro-life stances.

TMZ has the scoop on this, which is sure to develop.

Tagg Romney became the father of twins via a surrogate mother. The contract he used  included terms that would allow him or the surrogate the right to abort even in non-life threatening situations. TMZ is reporting that Mitt Romney covered the expense of the contract.

"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."
"In the event the child is determined to be physiologically, genetically or chromosomally abnormal, the decision to abort or not to abort is to be made by the intended parents.  In such a case the surrogate agrees to abort, or not to abort, in accordance with the intended parents' decision."l
"Any decision to abort because of potential harm to the child, or to reduce the number of fetuses, is to be made by the intended parents."
This is all being dismissed as a big mistake. You people would not understand. This is not a case of do as I say not as I do but you people cannot afford to understand this.

So in GOP World a rape victim is wrong to get an abortion but the son of a candidate for the 0.1% of the so called 53% can contract a woman to carry and abort at his will.

No GOP hypocrisy here at all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
