Mitt Romney Weighs in on Wrong Side of Handel/Komen Controversy
See my previous post for the reasons why Komen’s cut of funds to Planned Parenthood was so insidiously wrong. Last election I gave Mitt money*, this election I am clearly against his campaign.
While the GOP primary clown car is in the process of departing the ring it’s obvious to me that there are more pratfalls the remaining candidates are willing to take to pander to fools.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney thrust himself into the the Susan G. Komen controversy on Monday when he said in a radio interview that he agreed with Komen’s decision to cut Planned Parenthood funding.
When Minnesota radio host Scott Hennen asked Romney whether Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the leading U.S. anti-breast cancer charity, should continue to give Planned Parenthood grants for cancer screenings and mammogram referrals, Romney said, “I don’t think so.”
“I also feel that the government should cut off funding to Planned Parenthood,” the former Massachusetts governor added. “Look, the idea that we’re subsidizing an institution which is providing abortion, in my view, is wrong. Planned Parenthood ought to stand on their own feet, and should not get government subsidy.”
*Update: After checking records it was the Giuliani and McCain campaigns that I contributed too, I only wrote posts and articles supporting Mitt Romney after Giuliani endorsed McCain during the 2008 primaries.
