Wendy's Chili: This doesn't mean shiat.

The only people who'd care get all their news from Fox, which will never bring it up.


Not quite true. MSNBC will shout it from the rooftops, FOX will act like it doesn't exist and CNN will bring it up but they will get it wrong.

ox45tallboy: Duke Slater: Not to get all rational or anything, and I think Mitt is as big a joke as the next Farker, but it seems unlikely that this company specializes in fetus disposal (and I'm too lazy to look it up). However, medical waste disposal is a necessary and vital service - livers, feet, blood... did you think they put that stuff down the garbage disposal? Fetuses are probably 1 thousandth of one percent of their business, and if you still have a problem with that then that's your right. But I would bet this article is Fox News-level misleading.

Abortions are the largest category of Planned Parenthood's business. Also, they're the ones actually DOING the abortions.

In contrast, aborted fetuses are a *tiny* proportion of Stericycle's business, and by that time, it's a moot point anyway. Nobody, not even pro-lifers, worries about what happens to the *bodies* after the abortion is done. It's the abortion itself that people care about (duh).

Breaking news: CNN has learned that while running Bain Capital, Mitt Romney took a principled stance against the incineration of aborted fetuses by a company Bain heavily invested in. Mr. Romney threatened to withdraw Bain's investment if Stericycle did not immediately cease...

Wait. Stand by... We're getting conflicting reports here.

knobmaker: bhcompy:

I honestly don't know why they should. If you're a vegan and also a prominent investor, do you not invest in Consolidated Disposal because they dispose of waste from Safeway, which may include unsaleable eggs, meat, and milk?

If you're running for President on your record as a vegan, you'd have to be pretty stupid to invest in such a company.

But maybe we don't really need our President to be smart, hmmm?


I'd rather have a president that ran on what is prudent rather than strict morals. Bush Sr was very good because he was prudent, even though it cost him his office.

ModernPrimitive01: j0ndas: If this is true, it's bad for Romney for sure. Given, Obamacare uses taxpayer money to fund abortions, which is an order of magnitude worse than safely disposing of the remains afterwards, but I really wish we had a third option.

Do you have a citation for this because I'm curious if it does expand taxpayer money for abortions or is this some talking point that people are using now that the death panels thing is getting old?


Be aware that j0ndas is a known liar.

bhcompy: Meh, even if he was pro-abortion it's not a big deal. Morals-based investing is largely a loser. You invest in what makes money, and investing in fetus disposal apparently is a winner. It's not an endorsement of abortion, and even if you tried to make that leap, it's not like the company is doing the abortions, they're just the trash service.


The reason anyone cares is that the anti-abortionist crowd claims it's baby murder. For them, this is the moral equivalent of owning stock in a company that disposed of Holocaust victims' bodies.

For you and me, no, it doesn't matter. It's legal, so who cares? But for the anti-abortionist crowd...pretty big deal. Or at least it should be, if it were moral...

And thus this has much potential for hilarity as well.

If the crematory or murder scene cleanup teams were paid for by the murderer, then yes.

Those services aren't part of a "murder industry," but Mitt's investments are in a company that is part of the "abortion industry."

If you think abortion is murder, then Mitt's investment was paid off with blood money.

Not quite, if it was Fox/Republican level of misleading, they would have clarified that fetus disposal makes up 90% of what they do.

No liberal is going to have a problem with Bush doing this, entirely consistent reation with loose associations in Obama's past.

Of course conservatives have to play victim then tie themselves in knots in order to justify their hypocrisy with past associations....but they are use to it. They will simply create their own conservative reality where it all makes sense to them.

You know, investing in all kinds of things doesn't necessarily mean it's support. It means they want a return in money.

Hell, in an alternate universe where the soylent green company possibly exists, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that there was investments from various well off investors.

Moral and ethical reasons aside, this is the reason that I am against totally banning abortion. The rich people feed off of this and even though they want to ban it, they will still be able to go to some other country and get what they need while denying anyone who cannot afford to go there that same ability.

So what do these people think is going to happen if their campaign is successful? A woman is going to show up at a clinic one day, and the doctor's going to say, "Sorry, no abortions until the trash guy gets here!"

Or after the procedure, is the lady going to be handed a ziploc baggie with all the runny stuff in it and told, "Sorry, they stopped picking these up, here, you do something with this."

You really suck at this.

Romney has used his business experience to promote his candidacy. This is part of his time at Bain Capital, which is part of his business experience.

Romney can't use his experience as governor since it was a quite liberal record (including the foundation of ObamaCare and enabling same-sex marriages).

Romney can't use his business experience because he profited from shipping jobs overseas - and also profited from abortion.

Too bad Romney can't use any of his experience because it hurts him.

Sure, then she'd have to think twice before getting that abortion, wouldn't she?

As I said in one of the red threads on this, I think it's probably akin to 'these women are only having abortions because the fetus is so easy to dispose of. If this company wasn't making it so easy for them, women wouldn't have any more abortions.'

This.

False analogy much?

The company was dealing directly with the murderers.

If you knew that murders were routinely being committed at specific locations and that cleanup was required on a regular basis, would you offer your services to clean up after the murderers? I.e., be a Cleaner?
