Looks like Mitt Romney isn’t the only Republican who seems a little wishy-washy about opposing Roe vs. Wade.
HuffPo has acquired a phone transcript of Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee telling his lover to swiftly get an abortion after finding out he had illegitimately fathered her child. Before taking office, DesJarlais was a pro-life physician and self-toting family man.
From the transcript:
“You told me you’d have an abortion, and now we’re getting too far along without one,” DesJarlais tells the woman at one point in the call while negotiating with her over whether he’ll reveal her identity to his wife. They then discuss whether he will accompany her to a procedure to end the sort of life the congressman now describes as “sacred.”
