    This woman had the good sense to get the hell out of Mormonism after that.

    "a book says". I'd wait for confirmation by one of the parties; if he did so, maybe Romney felt the young woman wasn't prepared for parenting, maybe SHE expressed uncertainty or a desire to place the child up for adoption. Maybe her parents urged her to allow them to adopt. This is a report, about a report. UNCERTAIN.

    Actually, the woman was already a mother, recently divorced. She had the second baby out of wedlock, and Romney used the whole "I'm a Bishop" bullshit to try to get her to give it up.

    We already have her side of it, and frankly, I'm not interested in anything the weird Mormon Robot has to say, because I can easily tell when he's lying. His lips are moving.

    I'd prefer to learn Romney's side also; there may have been many reasons he gave that advice, IF he did.

    I can see Romney counseling her against abortion but not trying to persuede her to give her child up for adoption.

    I could see him doing both. I get a lot of crap for criticizing LDS, but the fact is, like most cults, it just likes to control every aspect of their members lives.

    My guess, he saw her as a baby machine for some richer bunch of Mormons who couldnt' have kids.
