More “compassion” from GOP candidates

First it was Sen. Sam Brownback’s lovely comments about how survivors of rape shouldn’t have access to abortion.
Now it comes out through an interview with Mormon feminist Judith Dushku that Mitt Romney–who can’t seem to stop changing his mind about abortiononce bullied a woman who was on her sixth pregnancy to carry to full term despite the fact that her life was in danger.
The whole interview really is a must read, but this part is just classic:

So then Mitt came in to the hospital. X thought Mitt had come to be comforting because that’s what bishops do. They have a pastoral role. But she said that instead he was critical.
He said – What do you think you’re doing?
She said – Well, we have to abort the baby because I have these blood clots.
And he said something to the effect of – Well, why do you get off easy when other women have their babies?

Well that’s just charming.
