Romney to Attend Fundraiser with Plan B Maker

Just don’t let Rush know about this. Mitt Romney is scheduled to attend a fundraiser at the house of the chairman of the board of directors for Teva Pharmaceuticals, a major manufacturer of contraceptives—in particular Plan B, the so-called “morning-after pill” that Romney has previously denounced as being “abortion pills.” The Florida fundraiser, held at the house of Philip and Pat Frost, will cost $50,000 a plate. Although Romney was a vocal opponent of the provision of the health-care law that would force private employers to pay for birth control, calling it a violation of religious liberty, Romney has had several fundraisers with several major makers of contraceptives.
