Everyone should know by now that Mitt Romney is not a candidate that represents women’s equality. But do you know how very badly the potential 45th President treated the women he was supposed to care for as a Mormon bishop?
Tale #1: Romney Tries to Force Ill Woman to Continue Pregnancy, Against Doctors’ Advice.
After a life-threatening blood clot was found in Carrel Hilton Sheldon’s pelvic region, the woman then became the victim of a medical error. She was given an overdose of the blood thinner heparin, a mistake which threatened her life and likely damaged her unborn fetus, according to doctors. Sheldon was advised by her doctors and by a chief LDS Leader, Dr. Gordon Williams, to terminate the pregnancy to protect her own life.
Unabashed, Mitt Romney stormed, uninvited, into Sheldon’s hospital room; he was the Mormon bishop assigned to “guide” her at the time. As she lay in the bed, her life in danger, Romney adamantly insisted that she continue the pregnancy, even though doing so may have cost Sheldon her life.
