Romney and Catholic Bishops

Deal Hudson notices - surprise! - that Romney's refusal to tell Catholic bishops anything in the debate last night is not borne out by Romney's actual record. Money quote:

As governor of Massachusetts, Romney ordered Catholic hospitals to administer emergency contraception to women who claim they had been raped.

According to the Boston Herald on December 9th, 2005, "Gov. Mitt Romney abruptly ordered his administration to reverse course yesterday and require Catholic hospitals to provide emergency contraception medication to rape victims. In a turnaround that foes derided as politically motivated, Romney directed his Department of Public Health to scrap rules that exempted the Catholic institutions from a new law governing the medicine."

The man will say literally anything.
