Hard to conjure up that image but it’s true. Thomspon sends out an e-mail blast taking issue with Romney’s statement today on MTP that “every piece of legislation which came to my desk in the coming years as a Governor, I came down on the side of preserving the sanctity of life.” The “fact check” includes this:

“Romney’s health care legislation provides taxpayer-funded abortions for a co-pay of just $50. Romney vetoed EIGHT provisions in his health care bill that he deemed objectionable, including the expansion of dental benefits to Medicaid recipients. He did not veto Planned Parenthoods’ guaranteed position on the Advisory Board or ensure that abortions were covered only in medically necessary situations (as required by MA court ruling). All abortions are covered in the Commonwealth Care program with no medically necessary limitation. Under the program, abortions are available for a copay of $50…

Romney included in his health care legislation a guarantee that Planned Parenthood would have a representative on his MassHealth Payment Policy Advisory Board. No such provision was included for a pro-life representative. …
Romney forced private Catholic hospitals to provide the morning-after-pill, a position applauded by Democrats and pro-abortions groups. ..”
More interesting than even the substance of this is the fact that Thompson is becoming more focused in his attacks on Romney. After a long period of silence we now have two consecutive days of challenging Romney’s conservative bona fides.
