Mitt Romney And Paul Ryan Would Deny Abortions To Rape And Incest Victims

VIDEO – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are in favor of laws that would force victims of rape and incest to give birth to their attacker’s baby, outlawing abortions even in these cases.  Both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan support “personhood” laws that would classify a zygote as a person with Constitutional rights.  Paul Ryan co-sponsored legislation to force women seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound.

 

Mitt Romney was asked by Mike Huckabee in an October 2011 interview if he would support a Constitutional amendment to enact a “personhood” law, to which Romney replied, “absolutely”.

Romney’s VP pick, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), co-sponsored a “personhood” abortion bill (H. R. 212), which would allow states to outlaw all abortion – even in cases of rape or incest.  The bill, which would outlaw many forms of birth control, would also outlaw in vitro fertilization—the process of creating an embryo outside of a woman’s womb.  Three of Mitt Romney’s grandchildren were conceived through in vitro fertilization.

Paul Ryan also co-sponsored another bill, H.R. 3805, that would force any woman seeking an abortion to submit to a state-mandated ultrasound.
