Romney: I Won’t Change Abortion Laws

Base? What pro-life base? Mitt Romney told the Des Moines Register that abortion won’t be a part of his agenda—and Democrats immediately pounced on his words, with the Obama camp saying, “Women simply can’t trust him.” In an interview with the newspaper in Iowa—one of the key swing states—Romney said, “There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.” Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul responded by insisting Romney is “proudly pro-life,” a position that Romney has had to defend in the past, especially after he insisted he was pro-choice while running for governor of Massachusetts.
