Ryan Sponsored Abortion Bill That Would Make Romney's Kids Criminals

By Sheila Samples

What isn't so well known about Ryan's record is that one piece of legislation he supported is so extreme it would have turned Romney's children into criminals. The Sanctity of Human Life Act, which Ryan co-sponsored, would have enshrined the notion that life begins at fertilization in federal law, thus criminalizing in vitro fertilization--the process of creating an embryo outside of a woman's womb. In May, Romney's son Tagg became father of twin boys thanks to help from IVF and a surrogate mother. Tagg's son Jonathan was also produced this way. Two of Tagg's brothers reportedly have struggled with infertility issues and resorted to IVF as well.
