What will Christian Conservatives say when they realized that Mitt Romney invested heavily in a company that disposed of aborted fetuses? They probably wouldn’t say much. For some strange reason, these people in the Republican party who calls themselves “Christians,” have found a way to forget the teachings of their Faith and hold on to their political ideology instead.
And right now, their political ideology revolves around Mitt Romney.
A report highlighted by The Daily Kos referenced another story in Mother Jones that looked at some of Mitt Romney’s investment. Mother Jones pointed out that in 1999, Mitt Romney invested $75 million in a company named Stericycle – a medical-waste disposal firm that has been attacked by anti-abortion groups for disposing aborted fetuses collected from family planning clinics.
Spokespeople from Bain Capital – the company founded by Mitt Romney – tried to distance Mr. Romney from the investment. They claim that Mitt Romney had already left Bain when this investment was made. But Mother Jones found reports filed by the Stericycle with the Securities and Exchange Commission that completely contradicted Bain’s claims.
Mother Jones Reports:
Documents filed by Bain and Stericycle with the Securities and Exchange Commission—and obtained by Mother Jones—list Romney as an active participant in the investment. And this deal helped Stericycle, a company with a poor safety record, grow, while yielding tens of millions of dollars in profits for Romney and his partners. The documents—one of which was signed by Romney—also contradict the official account of Romney’s exit from Bain.
Mitt Romney once believed in a woman’s right to choose but for political reasons, he changed and is pro-life. And no matter what a woman decides to do with her body, Romney and Republicans believe they should have the final say and should be allowed to force that woman to do whatever they want her to do.
And now that we’re finding out that Mitt Romney was at the heart of getting rid of fetuses, the Christians in his party are conspicuously quiet!
