Another Romney Reversal: What does the National Right To Life have to say about Mitt Romney’s abortion reversal?Wednesday, October 10th, 2012
Now that Mitt Romney has reversed his position again on the pro life / abortion issue, I would like to know what the National Right to Life has to say about his reversal.
We have coined a new term for Multiple Choice Mitt and the new name is “Romney’s Reversal” as the etch-a-sketch politician tries to spruce up his populism points.

(That April, Stericycle had announced plans to buy the medical-waste businesses of Browning Ferris Industries and Allied Waste Industries.) The SEC filing lists assorted Bain-related entities that were part of the deal, including Bain Capital (BCI), Bain Capital Partners VI (BCP VI), Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors (a Bermuda-based Bain affiliate), and Brookside Capital Investors (a Bain offshoot). And it notes that Romney was the “sole shareholder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of BCI, BCP VI Inc., Brookside Inc. and Sankaty Ltd….”
