In case you needed any more proof that the pro-life movement has little to do with actually promoting life (in the same way that the "traditional values" movement has little to do with tradition or values), here's a few words from presidential candidate Mitt Romney:
If there is a circumstance where the life of the mother is at risk by virtue of proceeding with the pregnancy, then abortion in that case is acceptable. I do not believe it is immoral in that case. I know other people feel differently.
Well, isn't that generous. I can only read that as: "If you're going to die, I suppose you can have a procedure to stay alive. But I respect those who would just push you off a cliff instead."
