Geoffrey Dunn, the author of the award winning 'The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power', has just published a devastating expose of what he alleges is Mitt Romney's pattern of behavior of callous and disrespectful treatment of women, as well as Romney's use of psychological intimidation and bullying in his role as a Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, offering three vivid examples in Horror Stories: Mitt Romney's Shameful Record with Mormon Women.

The two most disturbing stories in this excerpt of a new book are of Romney pressuring a woman to have a baby despite a life threatening condition where both doctors, and even the Mormon President of Stake of Massachusetts, recommended an abortion.  In the second example, Romney is alleged to have threatened a divorced single woman with excommunication if she did not relent and give her young son up for adoption to a "proper" LDS familiy, but showed no similar concern for her African American daughter.

Dunn's first case study describes the 1983 tragic pregnancy and medical emergency of Carrel Hilton Sheldon who was given an overdose of heparin which extesively damaged her kidneys, and caused significant internal bleeding. Doctors warned that her 8 week old fetus was probably significantly damaged, as well, and they recommended an abortion saying "her life was in peril." As a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, she sought and received the blessing of then Massachusetts Stake President Dr. Gordon Williams, who agreed she should terminate the pregnancy to save her life, and enable her to care for her four other children. ...  "Of course you should have the abortion," she recalled him saying.
