Mitt Romney paid for son's surrogate 'abortion contract', right to kill fetus

Mitt Romney's son, Tagg Romney, has been discovered to have engaged in a contract with a surrogate mother with the stipulations that if the child being carried was not up to the Romney's specifications, that the Romney family would have the final say if the child would be aborted or not.

In other words the Romney family used their money to buy the power to end a human life, something that Mitt Romney has spoken out against vehemently in the past.

Apparently money changes everything.

According to TMZ.com the leaked documents include a contract, known as a 'Gestational Carrier Agreement', which was signed between Tagg Romney, and an unnamed surrogate mother on July 28, 2011.

The section of the contract which gave the Romney's abortion power over the child reads as follows:

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.

The Romney campaign, naturally, has an explanation for this. It seems the family used this same surrogate in 2009, and in the previous contract the Romney family specifically wanted that part of the contract removed, and it was. This time however, Attorney Bill Handel, an expert on surrogacy law, said it was a simple oversight that the clause was left in the contract.

A lawyer for a family worth a quarter-of-a-billion dollars says it was an oversight? During an election year? Personally I find that to be a tough pill to swallow. Draw your own conclusions.

    This is a decision that the prospective parents ALONE should make.
    Um...why is the Romney family a regular client of this surrogate? Why aren't they having their own babies?

    The man would [press for legislation that would] interfere in YOUR decision, but thinks that he and family should be able to make the decision? Romney is a fcuking hypocrite. If he becomes president (which i predict he won't) American is really going to be fcuked.

    We're already really fuc*ed.

    How about we leave the social issues aside and pay more attention to the fiscal end of it.

    Your trying to pour a cup of water on a burning building.
