Less than a week before the neck-and-neck race to finish first in the Iowa caucuses, Planned Parenthood has launched a line of “multiple choice Mitt” clothing including bibs, baby onesies and T-shirts that blast GOP candidateMitt Romney’s “flip-flop” on abortion rights.
The collection, for sale online, includes $20 doggie T-shirts, $6 baby bibs, a $15 mug, as well as bags and hats, all bearing a photo of the former governor and the logo “Multiple Choice Mitt: Flip-Flopper from Massachusetts.”
“This was more than just a flip-flop, this was an extreme makeover,” said Angus McQuilken, spokesman for the Massachusetts chapter of Planned Parenthood, which has aggressively dogged Rommey for his reversal on abortion rights.
Romney’s spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom, said the candidate is not shocked at the campaign.
“Mitt Romney is pro-life. It’s not surprising that abortion rights advocates are opposed to him. Every action Mitt Romney took on legislation sent to him as governor he came down on the side of protecting life. As president, he will do the same,” Fehrnstrom said in a statement to the Herald.
When Romney ran for Massachusetts governor in 2002, he supported abortion rights, but in recent years has become an anti-choice candidate and tried to paint himself as the authentic conservative in the tight GOP race.
The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts launched the Multiple Choice Mitt: Flip Flopper from Massachusetts campaign in February.
