ROMNEY Led Bain’s Investment in Firm That DISPOSED of ABORTED FETUSES

Via: Atlantic Wire

Mother Jones‘s David Corn has a report out this morning that pushes the continuing attacks on Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital forward not just because of the business it involves — disposing of aborted fetuses — but because it extends the length of time he worked at Bain.

According to Securities and Exchange Commission documents, Romney was involved in Bain’s investment in a company called Stericycle in late 1999.

What did Stericycle do?

Well, it was a fast-growing, profitable medical waste company.

But it also had some problems, such as:

- getting fined for keeping body parts and dead animals in unmarked containers

- exposing workers to tuberculosis.

And then there were the fetuses.

Romney now describes himself as “adamantly pro-life” now but embraced pro-choice positions on abortion in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Back when Bain was involved with Stericycle, anti-abortion activists have waged a campaign against the company.

Read more here, including that Romney had “voting and dispositive power” with Bain until late-November 1999, and NOT February 1999 as the Romney Team has claim.
