Sealing for Eternity -- 'Such is the Endowment, as reported by many who have passed through it.' -- J.H. Beadle, Polygamy or, the Mysteries and Crimes of Mormonism (1882)]

When Mormon feminist Judith Dushku learned that Mitt Romney, her former bishop and friend, counseled a woman to come to full term with her sixth pregnancy --despite overwhelming medical advice that the life of mother and child were seriously endangered -- she confronted Romney about the matter, privately and publicly. He reacted bitterly, breaking off their relationship.

Dushku says Romney still speaks to others in her family, however, which includes daughter/actress Eliza, known for her television role as 'Faith' in the series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Judy Dushku has been a professor of government for 40 years. She now teaches at Suffolk University in Massachusetts and is Fulbright Senior Specialist there. For a while she also served as Dean of Suffolk's Senegal campus.
