It's the hypocrisy, Mr. Romney

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney says life begins at conception and women should not have a right to interfere in any way, yet

...[Romney] seems to have no problem charging supporters $50,000 a plate at a fundraiser at the house of Dr. Phil Frost. Frost's company, Teva Pharmaceuticals, isn't exactly evasive about their relationship with Plan B, either. Think Progress points out that on the company's website, the logos for Plan B and other contraceptive products are displayed prominently (including ParaGard, an IUD, which also causes abortions in the eyes of the Personhood movement). Hypocritical? Yes. Surprising? No. 

Granted, being full of shit is de rigeur for most politicians, but being hypocritical and abridging others' rights about such fundamental personal issues is another thing altogether.
